Interesting project. Btw the first episode is billed as the third, which is confusing...

Hi Andy

I really like the clean lines and simplicity of your design.

Roughly how much did the aluminium extrusions cost?

Did you buy new MFT tops or did you make your own?

Cheers.

Hello Pete,  I am going to list the sizes when I am finish as I over ordered to save on postage and also have more plain for this unit which I will upload as I go,

but the main unit is around 2300mm(L) by 800mm (h) 660 (d) to give you an idea of size..

I may even create some plans for a small price at the end as I have found there can be a lot of waste with mistakes and new idea alone the way . I will have a router and TS75 on the end section which doesn't have a MFT top as well .  also the Main section will pull away from the wall and have extension from full 2440/1220 sheet goods.

Best
Andy

I am not sure I am trying to keep the videos around 6/8 mins and show as much as I can, but I keep running out of time working on this..  I forgot how hard it is working on a bench with all my tools all over the place while I try to work and build it :)

I couldn't find any info on building one of these apart from the odd pictures.  but that left me with a lot of guess work..   so I hope by showing it on youtube everyone will be able to see how this can work..

Hi Andy

Has this thread split into two? I already placed a comment but it and much of the other comments seem to have disappeared so....

This is a lovely piece of work and you have chosen a very clear and enjoyable video style to get the story across.

Keep up the excellent work.

Peter

Nice one, I like these aluminium profile threads even though I don't have a workshop to put the made items in.

Topic was not split but there were two topics for the same video series. They have been merged into this one.

Just added a quick video of draws I made under the KS120 mitre station using Aluminium Profile as the draw handles.
