Ok, so its been a few years since I’ve been active here but thought of you guys immediately when I came to my current dilemma.
So I have a micro-shop … currently operating in a 9’ x 12’ shed. Although this is working out great and gives me enough space for most projects, I have had to build a “shop extension” by putting up a tarp with posts and bungee cords so that I can work outside the shed in not-so-nice weather.
The issue that I have is that I have to move my tablesaw and planer outdoors often to run long stock. I have a benchtop table saw and a Dewalt 734 planer. Both of which are heavy / awkward enough so I generally struggle. this usually starts my projects out on the wrong foot as I’m frustrated or sore before I start!
The driveway area outside my shop is crushed stone (not smooth or hard)
I’m trying to come up with a cart solution that I can easily roll out these tools, use them and roll them back in. Storage height for inside storage is an issue but I can deal with that. Looking for ideas for outdoor casters / lockable / swivel I guess but a complete design still evades me.
Thinking I’ll just build a rolling cart same as an indoor, only use outdoor casters, but would like to hear any other suggestions.
