My friend who wants to get into woodworking and recently picked up this nice Rigid SCMS, wanted to make a mobile cart for it, so he could roll it out onto the driveway to do work and than store it away. The cart is rather wide as we wanted to maintain as much of the enormous range it cuts!, and it’s double-beveling. The wing extensions and wing supports articulate on piano hinges.

He hasn’t convinced his wife to park the car in the driveway, so I’m sure thats next!

We found this idea on the internet, but added a fixed shelf and some drawers for more storage. The front area to the right of the drawer fits his air compressor and the shelf was intentionally left shallow, to allow room in the back for a shop vac and a Dust Deputy to sit on a 5 gallon can.

I think future upgrades could include some Kreg precision track on the foldable wings and prewire the shop vac and SCMS to an iVac and extension cord!

I think it turn out pretty darn cool!

Great Job ! Looks good. I made a similar cart for my saw and I love it. Packs away nice and neat when the wings are folded.

This looks really handy. I keep looking at mine and think I need to build something with side supports and a measuring tape. I really like this one with the mobile aspect.
