Cool looking,  are the systainers on full extensions? I was thinking of doing a very similar thing and yours looks great!

I started awhile back but only really did a few hours here and there on the weekends and at night.  I've pretty much have been working on it all last week (as much as my kids allowed)

Thanks for everyone's nice comments.  I can't take all the credit. The original design was from Jay Bates miter saw station that I kinda changed to my own needs..

Thanks,  need to finish drawers and faces on the last lower cabinet and make some knobs with the Origin and then start organizing and loading it up... still have to figure out the rest of the layout for mft, kreg station and bunch of other stuff

Thanks guys,  everything is very flexible and could be relocated. Especially the slides for the systainers.  I used the LR32 for all the holes and drilled on both the 16 and 32 setting so they all can be adjusted and changed for new systainers down the road.  The nice part about the hardware I used is that the slides can be mounted in the same hole on both sides of the 3/4  without interfering with each other.

Do you remember how deep the extensions you got were ?

I haven’t decided on a final layout but was wondering as an example having my sander & sandpaper in a single wider pull out but . My buddy is always telling me convenience convenience and I’m trying to build that in.

Just picking your brain a little

Looks Great!

This is my first COVID 19 project:

It's done except for the knobs, those are ordered.  I need to start something else.  It's boring but I may pressure wash and then do some painting on the house - trim mostly since it is brick.

The drawer slides are 14" full extension and the base is
401mm 316mm. I made a template and routed out the feet of the  systainers so they would sit flush and not move around on the base.

Nice!

Are you using 1/2” or 3/4” ply for the drawer base?

I want to replace my Systainer drawers with something similar so they extend further out of the cabinet.

Well looky here...this thing just manifested into a dust collection system for a Delta 14" band saw.

Here's 1 of 3 paper patterns that were used in this project next to the semi-completed dust collector.




The RH side of the dust collector with a 4" MagPort installed. The large thumbscrews close to the saw casting secure the collector to the saw frame.




The LH side which also shows 2 small thumbscrews that secure the removable access panel to the dust collector.




A close up look of the 2 large thumbscrews that secure the collector to the saw and one of the smaller thumbscrews that secure the access panel.




An inside view of the collector showing the aluminum billet mounting brackets and the Riv-Nuts that secure the access panel.

@Cheese, that is really fantastic work. I have a similar Delta and the dust collection is non-existent.  Looking forward to hearing what it’s like with your mods. 

Your bandsaw looks pretty tricked out—those knobs on the trunnions and the guides are definitely not what’s on my saw!  Nicely done.

Thanks...Max  [smile]  those knobs are from Iturra Design in Florida. They replace the stock cast aluminum knobs with the hard/sharp corners that hurt when you used them. A very pleasant change for sure.

The guides are from Carter Products and they were the best addition to the band saw I've made. I'd never go back to the original setup. The guides were put on about 8-10 years ago and I've not had a single issue with them.

Yes @blaszcsj however my printer will only print 8 1/2" x 11" paper so for the 2 end pieces, I had to cut & paste 2 sheets of paper into one.  [smile]  The files are .cad
