Mobile MFT/3 build
« on: August 05, 2014, 01:43 PM »
After seeing all of the mobile MFT's being built I wanted to build my own. Thank you FOG members for the great idea!

That is really nicely done- thanks for the inspiration.

Tipped on its side, without the MFT/3 on it, will that fit through a standard doorway?

Yes it will fit through a 36" doorway, the overall height with 27 3/8" with the MFT top is 34 5/8". You can also roll with the MFT top in a 36" opening because it is 30 3/8" wide. HTH.

Is the MFT attached to the top of the mobile base? If so, how.

It appears that there are alignment blocks on each corner right under the black knobs that tighten the leg assemblies.  The MFT stays on by its own weight plus these blocks to keep it from sliding off.

the MFT top is not held down in anyway but like Sparktrician said it is in place from moving from a round stock I had. 1 1/4" round stock.

Thank you, I will be finishing my work bench next! I have really enjoyed using the MFT table a bunch. At first I didn't see the big deal but once you get used to it you wonder how much easier it makes everything. I don't have to worry about squareness anymore. It is a really thought out tool in my arsenal.

Very pretty. Most of my home furniture doesn't look this good. I gotta get cracking.

It is very convenient to have a dedicated spot for your TS and works great! I got the idea from another  FOG  member.

It's a very beautiful bench, and the bike too - i have an old 2003 Jekyll, which is the right complement for my pretty rough, not yet finished table!

Francisco, sorry I do not have any plans as I was building on the fly. I just used the measurements from the MFT top including the side extrusion profiles and systainers and adjusted to my preferred working height and built from there.  [smile]
