OK, this is the last entry on mobile workbenches this week. Promise. The remainder of the week will be all about my plan to have our dust collection system run by hamsters.
You might remember my attempt to fashion a mobile base for the LVL workbench that was simple and inexpensive. Click here to read the story and watch the video. The base works fine as long as you don’t go over a serious bump. And when you do… well just watch the video below to see.
In any case, last night this idea came to me. Two words: draw latch. A trip to the hardware store and $2.99 later I had the solution. I screwed a latch to the bottom of each leg and voila. Then Glen and I took the bench for a test drive. We rammed it against the rubber horse stall mats on our floor. The base didn’t flip off the legs. Yea.
Then we brought Megan in to see how she liked it. (Curious, she isn’t wearing anything revealing today. She must not have any more tools to sell.)
