Built this to save me from lugging tools back a forth from the truck 20 times before even starting to work. Shew, ya’ll done already tired when you finish dat. One plug and everything’s hot. Table saw w/ 52” fence, compressor w/ retractable reel hose, battery chargers, electric pencil sharpener and 10 outlets for power tools and even has a custom truck tarp made for it when traveling through the rain.

Very nice!

I was wondering the same thing as AtomJack. Do you have a ramp or something?

That is cool. Pretty much a whole shop in a big box. I’m with the guys above. I want to know how you get it in your truck. That has to be pretty heavy. I’m thinking a ramp with a winch. Either that or you have some help.
