I like your Vac Sys mount and also the double deep Systainer drawers. How do you know remember what's behind what?

What model Sjoberg Workbench is that?  Elite 1500?  I really like those custom built draws.

It is a Nordic Plus 1500.  I think it is their entry level option.  I have been really happy with it.  I did not care for the cabinet that Sjoberg’s makes for this line of benches.  Flimsy and small.  My drawer box is twice as big and much better built for about the same money.

Thanks! 

The VacSys mount is basically the one in the Conturo manual.  I drilled a series of mounting holes so that I can move the t-track hardware and use it vertically on my bench or on my MFT.  However I have found that I like it as posted in the pictures.  I can just slide it over when I need it or back to the wall and it is out of the way.

As for the double deep drawers, I grouped my systainers to make it easier.  One drawer is all VacSys, one is my two Carvex systainers, one is my two Domino 500 systainers, three drawers are sanders.  It isn’t as hard to keep track as I thought it would be.

Snip.

It was really struggling one day cutting through some 8/4 hard maple that had a lot of tension in it.  Tripped the 20amp breaker a few times.  Also tripped the internal breaker several times.  That was what pushed me over the edge.  But that was the only time I ever had an issue in almost 6 years.

Mine is 1.75HP and to rip 8/4 materials (once in a blue moon), I use two passes. Lumber should be acclimatized in your shop before ripping.
