Ya there are a lot of options available and it all gets down to what you’re needs are. Just make a decision and go forth. 😀

It all works out well in the end.   😎

Consider it to be nothing more than a learning experience.

If it works out...you learned something.

If it doesn’t work out...you learned something.

Has anyone made a clamping rack/ verticle table out of 80/20? @DustyTools @RMW I'm thinking along the lines of the kreg face frame pneumatic etc..

No but you got my mind going!

I’ve been mostly focus on maximizing the space under my benches. I have started to think beyond this but don’t have any specifics in mind. Maybe once I’ve rebuilt my router table.

More minds are better than one :) I'm thinking vertical tracksaw table with clamping facility. The ability to quickly and accurately break down sheet goods as well as clamp doors /face frames would be awesome.

@DustyTools it's something I fiddled with years ago but I'm short on space so it'd have to be something I could break down and use outside. I mocked up something once but broke down the 80/20 and used it for other stuff.

The concept I had was like a panel saw but using a guide track running horizontally. Vertical extrusions tilted slightly backward, a sheet rested on a couple pins and then use some modified parallel guides like the old Rip Guides to hang the track from the top edge of the panel. Nuances are you'd need to clamp the top of the sheet to prevent it from dropping and binding the blade & also needs some kind of sacrificial material to keep the sheet off the extrusions & prevent cutting them.

A Walko workbench in the vertical configuration is similar to what I had in mind but using parallel guides and cutting horizontally rather than the Gekko's and vertically:



Panel clamping should be a fairly simple addon.

I ended up with a modular cutting table thingie using 80/20 and MDF for the sacrificial part.

As of 10/17 I am out of the Dog business and pursuing other distractions. Thanks for a fun ride!

Interesting, I don't really have room in my current shop but I'll remember for the future.

If you wants some ideas on 80/20, check out my Instagram (dusty.tools) I spent 2018 building 10 carts for my shop :)

Also, I would highly recommend Faztek as a cheaper, high quality alternative.

Are you still planning on doing an article, etc? I thought I read on your IG a while back you had something in the works.

Yes I really should get around to that! ToolGuyD asked me to do one :)

My first blog post on my build is published:

https://toolguyd.com/dusty-tools-shop-organization-modular-cabinets-part1-design/

I have a bunch more queued up.
