Here are a couple pictures of a rolling that I came up with. Also I was looking for a way to keep all my finishing supplies, glues and other temp. sensitive items in shop during winter month’s, so I found an old freezer and put a ceramic heater in bottom and regulated temp to 60 deg. A rolling tool base for my band saw and a stand for scroll saw and a lathe stand. Hope these give some of you all an idea or two. Thanks for looking.

I like the freezer/heater idea. Every winter I have to go through my shop and remove the things I dont want to freeze. Then I beg my wife for just a bit of space in the closet to store it. LOL

Great tips.
Thanks

That is a stand to mount 4 bench top tools, the bottom has a rotating storage tray. I built it when I was in my small shop, worked well, I have no use for it anymore. I’ll post a better picture Thanks I thought about putting heater on outside, easier to remove compressor and use drain hole to run cord. Ceramic heater is safe and will not cause a problem with flamable items.

The last picture is a revolving tool stand with no tools on it, was built to go in the corner of a smaller shop that I was in. I had at one time a small drill press, scroll saw, bench combo sander and a grinder on it.

A ceramic heater is just a small portable heater that has no electric coil to heat up, it’s supposed to be a safer heat source. I picked it up at Ace hardware for around $25.

Thanks for the tips. I’ve been looking for solutions to store clamps and a few other things.

Love the clamp storage roll-about and the freezer idea. Great work and ingenuity.

What is the base of your scroll saw stand set up like? Do you just have it secured to the floor?

David, I like the freezer idea, I have to keep things like carnuba wax and CA glue in a small fridge most of the year.
