I hurt my back cutting up 10 sheets of form ply on my panel saw last month. Ive been meaning to buy or make a cart make loading the saw easier on my spine. So I trawled the internet and found Lee Barkers “rolling tilting locking sheet goods tablesaw infeed cart” on Lumberjocks and asked him if I could copy it.

I made it out of all the scrap I could find, the only thing I bought new was the castors which were ridiculously pricey $15 each.

It works really well, though not as beautiful as Lee’s.

Thanks for looking.

That cart looks great, I crushed 3 discs awhile back so Im always looking for a smarter way. I would love some of that garage space also.

heres the name of some pretty good casters at lowes, in the storage and shelving area, their suppose to go on wire rack shelves. name on site is ( Real Organized 4-Pack 4” Plastic Swivel Casters) 19.49 for 4.

We have the equivalent, but its not very close to me, so I just went to the local “industrial hardware store”
You know the drill, I was there, and they had them…..

Thanks for the kudos, but look at Lee Barkers version, it is much nicer.

But having said that it works really well. I was lucky my pain was just musculature, but it felt like the end of the world (maybe I’m just soft…)

The garage is a tin shed approx 11 meters by 7,with a skillion addition of 7m x 4. It is an absolute mess yet I try to irk out a business there.

I saw his also, but I’m leaning towards a vertical panel saw to break down large sheets. With the leaning table I would end up filling it just like every bench I have now. : )

Vertical saws are not overly accurate in my experience. They are very versatile though.
I know what you mean about filling up every possible horizontal surface. I try to stop, but it just keeps happening.
