I have finally gotten around to making a mobile cart for my Tormek T7 Sharpening System. The cart has casters and five drawers. The cart is 23-1/2 inches wide 25 inches deep and 29-1/2 inches tall. I also have two other pedestal grinders and will probably mount each grinder on a plywood base so that I can easily change grinders. There is still plenty of room in the drawers to hold additional sharpening related accessories.

As usual it’s just a utility piece of shop furniture and other than being ample for the job there is nothing fancy about it. Thanks for looking.

Very nicely done, and looks like it will be a great addition and convenience for your shop.

First-class shop furniture, Charles. You can never have too many drawers.

Very nice sharpening cart. Almost a shame to use it. And best of all its on wheels.

You can never have too many drawers!

On my Tormek cart, I added a couple of measuring stops for jig setups. They’re nothing fancy- just some wooden pieces fastened to the top and set in from the face of the top at metric distances for my most used grinding jigs.

Charles, nice stand for your Tormek. I’ve got mine on a steel roll around cart.

One thing I have to deal with is water every where and my steel top helps with easy mop up. What is your top made of and is there any extra protection from water?

Good job.

John, there will be sheet metal top with a lip on it under the grinder. It’s sort of like a pan that people would cook toast or a pizza on. Secondly, the cart will not be used much since it will be in one corner of the shop. It’s mostly to be able to roll the cart out several feet in order to sweep up around it. So it will be a stationary work platform for the most part.
