New Wheels

This is going to be one of those ‘informative’ kind of posts… I was actually intending to write about something else I made and added to the workshop recently but I appear to be missing some of the in-progress photos of that and, if I did take them then, they must still be on the SD card which is sat out in the workshop right now!

So, this evening’s post concerns some minor modifications I’ve made to the ‘mobility’ of both my table saw’s mobile base and the router table I made back in August.

Mobile Base for a Table Saw

If you’re a subscriber to my YouTube channel then you may already be aware that I uploaded a brand-new video yesterday morning, featuring the mobile base I made for my site saw (Scheppach TKU) a few weeks ago.

I actually filmed all of this about four weeks ago but I’ve spent a lot of time since simply pondering over whether or not certain scenes are ‘good enough’; is my speech clear enough; would it be better for me to wait until I’ve tinkered with it a bit more before uploading the final edit…

In the end, I decided that it does display all that I need it to and I hope that you agree. Also, it had been several weeks since I last uploaded a new video and so, I really needed to get ‘something’ out there.

If you’d like to see the original video that inspired this design (and hence, why mine isn’t a ‘how-to‘ as such), then please follow the link below:

As always, comments, thoughts, opinions and feedback are always welcome.

Thank you and enjoy! 🙂

Starting at the Base

If I’m going to have to clear out my workshop at some point this year then, I’m going to need to ensure that all of my machines can be moved easily, even if they only end up going in to the back of someone else’s car or van. Most of my machinery is already catered for in that respect. My mortiser will need looking at (that’s got to be close to 200kg in weight) but first, I’m turning my attention to the Scheppach TKU Site Saw I was given a few months ago.

Mobile Base for the Site Saw.

As soon as we slid (and scraped) it inside the door, I wanted to come up with a design for a mobile base that would allow me to easily lock it in position for cutting. I struggled on my own and so, have procrastinated until now. It’s thanks to a YouTube video (which you can watch below) that I’ve found my inspiration for this one.
