Took a computer component rack apart, they are built with about 75 ft of double t-track . Made tables for the drill presses and fence system for the onsruds. I swing the arms out of the way and utilize the onsruds for many different operations now after welding in a height level adjustment on the foot pedals . Also put a track on the bandsaw deck for do circle jigs and back fence for the powermatic mortice mch. made my own knobs , also put linear screw shaft motors on the drill press tables to raise and lower by buttons. Cheap and effective way to get more out of the tools I have . Working on the circle jig for the 24” tannewitz , just finished adjustable fence on the dual 12” delta radial saws ( one dado)

Good idea, also – - – I like your basement workshop!

That’s a mighty big basement! I’m impressed with all your machines. I’m thinking of what I could do with that set-up. Good ideas for the DP and RT! Got mine on my to-do list.

Really good idea to get the tracks from old computer racks.
I got mine from a guy who had build a cnc cutter, and had 20 meters he did not need, so he gave me them for nothing…
Yes, it’s quite a workshop, what are you making there?
Thanks for sharing,
