After watching a show on woodworking and seeing this flip top, I started thinking this could be useful to get the Miter-Saw out of the way & off the bench. I already had my planer on a stand so I wasn’t loosing any real space in my small shop per say.
I talked with Plantek who just happened to build one right before I stared mine, Thx bro. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39814
I modified the plans to make mine taller @ 36”. I was not real comfortable with the use of the 1 inch wood dowel as the pivot as suggested, so I use 5/8 steel rod. Over kill I know, but those of you Fellow Lumberjocks that know me already understand this. LOL
I used a 3/4 inch sheet of sanded oak plywood. I cut the dado’s on my router table. I stained it with some left over Cherry Minwax I had laying around. 3 inch casters that all swivel and lock were used.
This thing is solid and stable. When its all tightened down with the 5/16 knobs there is no movement. It flips the tools surprisingly well.
If anyone would like the plans let me know your e mail & I will send them to you
Thx for looking.
