African Rosewood, Leadwood and Maple Workbench build #2: DIY Castors for Heavy Bench - Video

06-13-2020 07:51 AM by carrera4s | 1 comment »

I hope that my workbench will be c 150 – 200 kg (330 – 440 pounds) when it is done so that it can stand still for any conceived hand tool operation. (My current Festool type Mobile MFT Cart is way too rickety – the whole thing shakes when I use even a small block plane). However, I also want it mobile, so it must have retractable castors.

A helper post for the tread making jig. Here is the jig in straight mod but I need angle tire treads so!

I cut off the corner so the fence could get in closer. I added a stop block at the back of the table saw so i wouldn’t have to think about stopping ,just hit the stop and on we go. Th...

The treads I made on the last post were just to big so sanded down one set and retreaded them. Now these are the right size. And here’s how I cut the wood down for my wheels.I cut the board just a tad over size 2 3/4” then rip on the table saw using a rip blade that came with the saw and it does a pretty smooth job of it.
