Topic tags/keywords: shelf thickness calculator drawer bottom thickness shelf design

Trying to determine drawer bottom thickness for some new hardware cabinets in my shop. Searching the forums I came across numerous references to the Sagulator for calculating shelf thickness. Problem is the link will not load. I’ve googled it to see if it’s hosted at any other location, but all I find is the original Woodbin link, and I get an error every time I try. All other sites work fine.

Anyone know if Woodbin and the Sagulator have gone “off the air” and/or if there is a similar calculator elsewhere?

The error message is not a “can’t be found” which would indicate a bad link, it’s a “cannot connect” or “cannot display” error which typically relates to a down site.

The link is probably sagging!

I just tried mine… connection timed out. It seems to be the entire site as well. Maybe it will come back on??

Never heard of sagulator, if in doubt I will model my project using ANSYS.

You can click the link below to go to an archive of it though.
