As we say here in Boston, MA: "Wicked Awesome!"

What is the dovetail jig that you use? I haven't seen one of that style before.

@PaulH99 It's the Trend DC400, licensed by Akeda. I like it because you can space the dovetails in 2,5mm increments. I build certain furniture in series so I need to be able to make the exact same drawers with the same settings hundreds of times through the years while making sure that the bottom or slide groove fall exactly in between. I think it's the only jig out there that can do that.

@Timtool That is seriously cool. I have never heard of that brand/model. Too bad I'm just about done with my current project or I would get on their waiting list for the next production run. $660 for the 16" model + accessories isn't that much more than I spent on a Leigh Super, and is quite a bit less than a Leigh D4R! And you're right: none of the Leigh jigs have any repeatability over time. You have to reset the "fingers" for each job. I usually resort to a steel ruler and writing down the measurements, but even that isn't perfect.

trend apparently has discontinued them and I always heard Akeda was not available due to their factory burning down. I think I paid under €350 for mine 7 years ago.
Jigs with fixed spacings are terrible if you want your drawers to look good, and the Leigh, though being the ultimate jig, wouldn't work for me. I always make spare drawer parts in case anything goes wrong, I can reuse them in the next batch even if I changed the settings in between.

I bought the plans, now if I remember correctly, some people have 3D printers, it would be great if we could get templets printed for the lifting parts since those are the critical ones.

Tim,  I have been watching you MFSC developing int this thread. I have been trying to find some method to use a table that can be  set to varying height and use for storage for projects and can be moved around in a small area. You most recent video displays pure genius.  I don't have space to take advantage  of the full capabilities of you workbench, but if I retire from landscaping biz, I will get rid of much equipment currently stored/used from my barn. A couple of those benches would be perfect then.

I never thought of a 3D printer. But I was thinking about talking to my brother who works at a machine shop to see if he’d be able to make a program to run them on a CNC. I was thinking about using Baltic Birch for the lifting mechanism

Well since the release there have been contacts from all around, so it looks like some things may be set in motion. But I don't want to spoil anything at this point.

Part 1 of the fabrication, I finally used the CXS turntable footage at the beginning to introduce the cart again before the construction begins.

Thanks for installment one! Great project and a very useful shop addition.

I'll also chime in like another poster in saying that your bench system really caught my eye, too. Since I've been enjoying all of your videos, I just ordered the whole "combo pack" of plans and hope to put a lot of your ideas to use in my own shop.

Ordered the plans.  Thanks for the level of detail, Tim!
I bought the plans also and since I have finished the MFTC, I am building the MFSC. I am excited to finish making it and put it to some use in my shop

It's odd that the way the pictures are stored in my computer are 90 ° to the way they show when I am posting them.

I believe the images most commonly rotate because of the size.  Try resizing and see if they still rotate.

Or proportion?

Looks like the images which are wrong are portrait (vertical) images which have been rotated to landscape --- pad them out w/ whitespace horizontally to make them square or wider?

Still have the lifter arm, rachet mechanism, drying rack, and final assembly to go. It is a stout little cart and will be a good addition in my shop.

The forum software seems to prefer landscape vs portrait images and smaller images.
