I finally got around to building my version of the flip top planer stand to hold my Dewalt planer and Ridgid oscilating spindle sander. I took inspiration from a few plans that I saw in various magazines as well as Gizmodyne’s posted here on LJ’s. It’s constructed of birch ply, trimmed in birch and finished with 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal. For my version, I sandwhiched a metal pipe between 2 pieces of ply and then ran a piece of threaded rod through that to allow it to rotate on the stand. To lock the table, I used threaded knobs that go through the side and screw into threaded brass inserts in the flip top. It works great and helps me save space in my small 2 car garage/shop. Thanks for looking.
