« Part 7: Progress on front vise Part 8 of Torsion Box Workbench - aka - my first bench series Part 9: It's done! »

Ok, so I’ve been trying to figure out how to merge these two ideas, and sad to say I’m just not quite analytical enough to make the round peg go in the square hole. I really want to combine the idea from the table saw assembly table that uses levers on the side of the bench to raise and lower sets of casters on either sides of the table (would keep my toes safe at least) but I can’t seem to wrap my brain around how to attach it to the leg design of the torsion box bench since I can’t attach the steel pipe into the legs. I’m guessing something without using the pipe but then it requires not using the lever. Hmmmm… any thoughts?

If you attached wheels to an eccentric (like an oval). then as it rotates it would raise and lower the casters.
