Tim, fantastic ! What dollar figure would you estimate this project? And is there anything you would add or modify?
It's hard to put a price tag on it, there isn't that much material in one, and in my case i made half of it with scraps. The only thing i had to buy was 2 sheets of ply, the T-tracks, wheels, slides and some hardware. There is a list of everything needed in the plans.
Things i would change? Well nothing that wouldn't add more problems than it could solve. The first prototype has 25m of electric cable on board, connected to a socket with 4 outlets on the MFTC, it was really practical but it added way too much weight. The cord of the CT vac is long enough in 80% of cases to reach an outlet.
I gave this allot of thought and spent dozens of hours on sketchup making all possible combinations, shapes and mechanisms to try and find the best i could. Countless times i started from zero on a new idea and be stuck in the end because there is an tremendous amount of interaction of all the parts.
I changed a few things after building the final model, like putting adjustable feet in the MFTC base as well, and not only on the table legs, which has greatly improved stability.
In the future i might add a miter saw table extension, where the table of the saw sits flat with the surface. The extension table design is highly customizable and simple, and the legs fold into the base taking minimal space when not in use.
