Fliptop tool stand

So I’ve been running out of space in my garage/workshop so I built a couple of mobile stands to house our Ryobi tools.
Fliptop tool stand holds the belt/disc sander and the thicknesser.
Folding wing mitre table for my Ryobi Dual Bevel Mitre Saw.
Super happy with how they both work!

Re: fliptop tool stand

Welcome to the Bunnings workshop community @hazesnow. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for sharing your project.

 

That's a super interesting way to house your machines, would you mind telling us more about how you created the flip-top mechanism. You've certainly got some fantastic woodworking skills, and I'm really impressed with the design you've come up.

 

I look forward to seeing your future projects and no doubt your knowledge will be a significant addition to the community. Many thanks for sharing and well done.

 

Mitchell

Thanks so much for your kind words.
It pivots on a piece of 20mm galvanised pipe housed between two side supports and locks in using eyebolts and hex head bolts!

Re: fliptop tool stand

Great idea!

Reminds me of the Elu/Black and Decker flip drop saw and table saw concept.

What's the weight of the Ryobi thicknesser?

 

I'm sure it's well secured. 😉
