Hi All, I have parts rolling off of the 3D printer and flat parts landing in the mail this week (Thanks Dan) and am prepping to start construction on a new build. I have a small shop, just as one-car garage, so I’m doing a build that will fold up against the wall when not in use and sit on casters so I can move it around. I want to be able to :
- Cut full size plywood sheets with end goal of producing some big kits that I can sell.
- Have enough precision to make half blind finger joints between parts and make kerf cuts for curved surfaces.
- Have enough flexibility to do big signs, or other random stuff that we might want to produce.
- The work-bed will have wheels or something that will ride up and down the back of the frame, and a cable, probably, will hoist the back end up when I want to put it away. It'll lower down to a lip and be held in place with a pins at each end.
- I'm thinking to make the work-bed with 2x6 perimeter and galvanized half-slot channel along the edges for the wheels to roll along. I'll use mdf to make a torsion box between the 2x6 perimeter that will hold the spoil board and working material.
- Can have spoil board flush with the rails or set below them if that's better.
