This whole thing is truly outstanding.
I especially like the simplicity of the systainer shelves!

Wow! Your system is pure genius. I’m eager to incorporate as many of your ideas as I can. Thanks for taking the time to share what you’ve done and to do it in such a polished video. Please keep it up.

WOW  [eek] Very nice. 

Thanks to my local FOG friend LawHoo for his PM, which got me to the FOG this morning, and  then to  this thread.  I had missed it before.

Great system, I have watched the video a couple of times now. I hope you will consider offering plans for sale soon.

Some how I missed this posting back in January.  It's phenomenal! 

You made all this just so you can improve your production workflow and do your actual work on site.  I wouldn't be able to build anything as nice or functional or as efficient if I spent the rest of my life trying.

Outstanding job.

Impressive.  Please continue sharing your work.  As someone who moved from a large space to a smaller shop, I find a lot of inspiration in your work station.

Well done! Very inspiring. I’m looking for ideas like these for my ‘portable’ shop - needed because I do auto mechanic work much of the time that consumes all garage space.   You’ve done a lot of neat stuff here and it’s hard to pick favs but the clamping lounge/reimforcement bridge with rolling cabinet has to be the winner. Bravo! I think you could sell plans for much of this and get takers. I’d bite.

I finally got around to making plans for this system.  It's a 61 page PDF with 30 pages of sketch up prints and 30 pages of photos.  Pretty detailed, but I'm pretty new to making plans, so I'd appreciate any feedback on them.  Here's the link:

Do the plans include the folding shelf and boom arm?

Yes. It has everything except the laser section.  I would have worked on that more, but there was never a situation that came up to justify it compared to other methods.  I think it would be useful for the right project, but I have other routing methods that work fine.

I purchased the plans. The plans are easily downloaded once you click on profile and orders. It still is not that clear and patience is in order.

The 61 page set of plans are a mixture of both plans and very helpful photographs. The photographs are detailed and plentiful from several angles. The dimensions are precise to the 1/16 ". They are thoughtfully detailed. For instance, I liked the folding track saw rest. The plans have a curve on each arm that swings away when not in use. The exact point for the radius is on the plan.

There are a lot of openings that are shown on the plan as rectangles and squares. these can obviously be left with the curved corners from the router. I am not sure I am patient enough to square every corner. But that is the point of the entire set of plans. They  very adaptable to change to fit the need in specific cases.

The plans have a list of components with a direct link in most cases to the part on Amazon. This makes fast work of putting together a budget shopping list. Again. Fasteners, hinges and such are a matter of choice.

My intent is not to build the entire system but to create some components such as the track saw rest. and some Systainer carriers.

This set of plans at $15.00 met my expectations and will likely be very appropriate for those who want a complete system or might be interested in only some of the well  thought out components.
