Re: Sliding drop saw cabinet

Gday @Netorius - The vertical draw slides are for holding 1lt Paint and Stain cans. I can access from both side when open. Thinking of making some so I can put spray paint cans aswell, but will need to put some bungee to stop it from falling out.

Love the way you built the drop saw into the bench and the ducted dust collector. The little stoppers for distance gauging is simple but looks effective. Might give it a go. Well done.

Re: Sliding drop saw cabinet

This is just amazing @Razzer   Ummm where do you live?  interested in making another?  Since you have done such an amazing job on this one it will take you half the time to make another...   :smile:  Just love it.  It would look amazing in my workshop.  You have thought of everything.  How big is it Razzer?  Did it take you very long?  Would have been a great ISO project that's for sure.  Keep up your amazing work.

Re: Sliding drop saw cabinet

Im on the Mornington Peninsula. Stuck in my house aswell. Its 3m long and 1.9 high. It only took me 2 weeks to build it after work. Im building another one for my mate but its alot different. She is renting, so cant fix it to the wall. Think it cost me about $600 for everything. I would change the fence though, would prefer the track to be on top with a flip down stopper. As it does get stuck in a few places. I have also added a dust collector from the bottom (wish I thought of it at the start). Just waiting for the larger dust collector to arrive, I went for a twin bag 3hp model. I have the Full boar dust collector but needed a bigger one for the new tools coming soon. Im building cabinets in the rest of the garage during ISO, just to keep me some what sane.
