My son Dan and I are upgrading our shop. When I scrapped my Rockwell 10’ Motorized Saw I thought the base would make a good stand for a drill press or planer.
The top is made from a short piece of old LVL doweled and glued together with a 3/4 ply cleat glued and screwed under the joint. The shelf is the side of an old base cabinet someone was throwing away. Top and shelf soaked up a surprising amount of oil based poly. All the steel was painted with black epoxy after the rust was Ospho’ed. Broken bolts were milled out of the aluminum lift assemblies and the holes tapped. Found the levelers on Ebay and a set of casters in a coffee can. Three layers of scrap ply and hardwood railing from an old bunk bed stiffen it up.
Kick down on the levers in the front and cams lower the casters. It works great. -Jack
