This was/is a blog, but now that I am finished I want to add it to my completed projects.

I wish there was an add to projects button (hint hint). ;=)

The Blog can be found here: http://lumberjocks.com/DMIHOMECENTER/blog/24778

Thanks,

DG

Great idea! Very practical and would save me a lo of time pulling out and putting away smaller tools that sit on my work bench.

I am envious. I think anyone with tools like that has dreamed about a work station like that. Well done!

Mads, It is a 1981 Mazda RX-7 1st Generation. I have had this for 30 years now. It is one of my time markers. ;=)

Cool, it’s vintage, I know this feeling.
I have old Vespa GL from 1963 I bought when I was 17 and I cant sell it even it probably is not possible for me to drive it anymore due to my neck.

@Manitario, Thanks. I have used the combo sander several times and the drill press once so far. I was extremely lucky that the heights of the various tables and the direction or area of their feed was such that the machines do not interfere with one another (not yet anyway).

David, that is really nice and I have thought about doing the same with some of my power tools. However, in my case it’s not really feasible because I don’t have enough room to park it anywhere. If I ever build my storage shed outside the shop I will be able to build me a ramp into the shed and I could then roll something like that out onto my driveway just outside of my shop door and use it out there. My big dream is to add 12 more feet onto my shop and then I would be all set. However, I don’t think it’s ever going to happen.
