Looks great! I like how compact it looks also. Could you add a few pictures of the mechanism/hardware? Very useful cart, especially for us guys with little workshops.

-- If I could just get this whole "Time/Money" problem figured out...

Looks practical! Should serve you well.

What did you use for the shaft & bearings?
Did you use locking casters?
Is it nice and stable?
What would you do different, were you to build another?

Thanks for sharing!

Great , I saw a similar project in one of my mags, maybe shop notes, FWW, I get so many I can never remember. I would also like to know about the flipping mechanism and hardware you used.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

Looks good I just finished mine and love it. Makes a big difference in extra room in the shop. I did go with the cadilac plan from paul Stoops design.

-- Tim - I usally measure twice after I cut......then I know for sure that I cut it short.....

I will get some more detailed pics up soon. This unit was made of all scrap The top is 1×4s half lapped and covered with three quarter ply and prettied up with quarter inch hard board I then drilled a hole on either side to accept a pipe and beat the pipe on drilled a hole through the pipe inserted a bolt as a keeper and installed it on the sides. Now if I would do it again I would flair the bottom of the sides for more stability And the locking mechanism is my design totally and works great
