Didn't get them finished today as I changed plans at the last min. Going to use these wheels instead, so I need to machine some different pads to bolt the wheels to.
Some 1 inch aluminum square tube with angle for the angled shelf and top shelf.
Both of those will have 1/4 aluminum plate with a grid of 1 1/2 holes machined in, and just set down in the angle. They will hold tapered tool holders for the machines.
Might seem a little overboard but the weight adds up quickly.

FINALLY got into our "new" house. Even got to arrange a bit of junk the garage today and took some pics. It has a loooonnnggg way to go still, but its a start. I've got a bench, the lift table's uncovered, and the tool box is accessible!

Looks good, I'd paint it all white before you get everything moved in/placed. It'll be too hard then and the pink will really start to bother you

trust me, its on my list of things to do. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that the paint isnt going to stick too great right now. Its been about 5 degrees F the last couple of days, although it did get up to 25 or so today. Spring is on the way!

they say pink is soothing.



I say it'll be a source of humor for you and your buddies for years to come!
