This was my first flip flop taoble it is used to hold my 12” Makita 400mm planer this thing is a tank/ the flip side is for a 6″x48″ belt sander with 12″ flat face. Both of these together weigh in close to 450 lbs. I had to make a structure strong enough to hold it and move it. I decided on 3/4 Baltic birch for the sides and the bottom. The tools are through bolted to the table which is made up of 4 pieces of 1/2″ Baltic birch ply glued together for a total thickness of 2″. There is a channel in the middle for the solid 1″ shaft to sit in.There are two bearings for garage doors to hold the shaft.
Don’t let go of this unit because it is a little off wieghted the planner weighs about 80 lbs more that the sander. There are landing pads bult onto the sides for the table to land on you don’t want this to be floating while trying to stick in the pin to lock it.
This unit saves me about 6 sq ft of shop space.
