A little bit about my self im a contractor and install kitchens for a living and do a bit of custom stuff as well

Well i decided to make my own trolley to cart my tools to job site .i made it out of 40x40 extrusion and fit stair trolley wheels from rota caster.

The best thing about there wheels is you can turn a circle on the spot or push it side ways they are awesome.

I have been wanting to use my mft3 to build some of my cabinets on site for awile but the weight of it has put me off and i need to create an overhang on the long edge for planing fillers ect and not chopping into the side of the mft.
So i cut a piece od 9mm ply same as the mft top. Then cut out the middle to reduce weight then cut a bigger top and fixed them together and screwed it down i have been using it for awule now and it bits so well with my system

Comine that with the cs50 and kapex stand and wow i love it it work so well. I also have a set of saw horses that hold 150kg each set at 900mm for benchtop install  and are adjstable in height.[Inline mode=1]

Cheers

Bryan

@bryan1982

Do the little barrel rollers on the rim of the Rotocaster wheels allow you to move the trolley sideways?
