Homemade Sysport
« on: June 01, 2012, 12:48 AM »
I'd like to thank Frank Stacho whose post inspired me to build my own sysport.  Frank's post

The top is from an MFT/3, and the cabinet is the same height as my existing MFT/3.  I used 14" shelves front and back to hold systainers, whereas the drawers are full depth 26".  The small center support helps prevent sagging of the MFT top if something heavy is placed on it, but is movable depending on where I need to place clamps.  It has locking wheels as I'm short for space - everything gets pushed against the wall when I'm done so the wife can put her car in the garage overnight!!

51878-0

51884-1

51886-2

The base frame is 4" x 1" something
The cabinet is 5/8" oak ply from Lowes
The shelves/drawers are 1/2" baltic ply from WoodCraft
The wheels are locking swivel 3" wheels from Woodvraft
Drawer fronts are yellow heart
Shelf fronts are purple heart
Drawer runners are 1 1/2" over travel Rockler, 14" and 26"
A mix of tongue-and groove, dowel, glue and screws!!

Looking at your Tormek ... have you seen those under counter extensions that lift up and out (typically in a kitchen for something like a large Kenwood mixer) ??

Placing yours where you have has given me some ideas!   [smile]

Don't know if they'd be solid enough though  [unsure]

I've in installed a bunch of the mixer lifts; they really are very stout and would handle the sharpener with no problems.
Great idea Kev, you've given me some ideas for my own shop.

Ah - now that's good news ... there'll be a utility bench with a Tormek and the 8" double grinder slung below in my near future!

Tks!   [smile]
