The next stage in the workshop setup is underway, fabrication of a stand for my BF20L mill/drill unit. The plan is still a little fluid as I grabble with balancing getting a rigid design while trying to maximise floor space usage.
Pics attached show:
#1: the plans, but another variation is already being pondered where I revert to spans around the lower legs and reduce the angle bracing at the top and accept I can't store the band saw under the table but get more rigid legs as a result.
#2: All the steel parts that are not up for revision (basically the legs and top) cleaned and cut ready for welding
#3: The main runners of the top with the ends capped. Not a bad effort if I do say so myself
They almost look bought.
More pics as I progress with the build and refine the design.
