Bertha’s lead was enough of a kick in the butt for me to get a caddy built for my wood burning set, the parts of which are everywhere except where I expect ‘em to be. So, starting with a 2×4, I drilled it full of holes, glued a couple of spacers on the bottom of it @ each end so saw dust won’t accumulate in ‘em holes.
In order to attached the base unit to the caddy, I removed the metal cover and drilled two holes so I could attached the unit to the caddy, and probably voided my warranty by drilling the holes.
Next I pre-drilled the holes to accommodate the 1/4” x 2 1/2” lag bolts (and wrapped the screws with elec tape) so I could wind the power cords up when the set is not in use. The next thing I had to do was to attach a strip at each end on the bottom of the caddy to serve as the feet, and then added the round felt pads.
. . . nutt’n fancy – just utilitarian ! ! !
