Awesome shop!

I'm not real familiar with the mft/3, in your picture that shows your fence....is that the stock parts that come with it or something that you came up with? Looking for some type of fence w/stop blocks for my 20mm slab.

Thanks in advance!

@MikeTek thank you!

It's the stock fence, with:

1 extra fence stop
Tape measure added (got it from Amazon)
And fence dogs from: https://benchdogs.co.uk

They rock!

Nothing wrong with a clean shop ;)

I’ve been on a similar mission the last 18 months.

Matt

The tape you used from Amazon would you happen to remember the the part number. I also purchased one from them and it was to wide to fit on the front like yours, did you have to trim it.

Thanks

@DustyTools Clever way to setup your CNC. Is it on sliders and if so what grade you use?

Thanks :)

The whole cabinet rolls out when I'm doing a project. This photo shows the layout.

It looks like I never posted a completed picture on my Instagram. I'll posted one soon.

It's very nice.

Tempted to go a similar way, but the extrusions are quite expensive...

It’s worth talking to them directly, it results in a slightly better price. But yes it’s not cheap....

why should it be cheap? I use 80/20 all the time. The utility and modularity is well worth the price. What is often overlooked is that it can be disassembled at a future point for something else or modified to suit changing conditions. The ability do build a finished product in short order is fantastic. If you are looking at the price, compare it to all the effort of other less expensive materials. Not every project needs to be a time vampire of re sawing,planing, cutting, finishing, polishing. I think this is fantastic.
