Title: Mobile carpentry system plans
Post by: Mgildersleeve on June 23, 2019, 04:04 PM
I've completed plans for a mobile carpentry system.  Here is a link to the system demonstration:

The plans are over 30 pages of prints and 30 pages of photos explaining the measurements, assembly method, and required hardware.

The link for the plans are here:

OP

I'm impressed with the system you developed and wanted to see  the plans.  I can't find your listing on Etsy, so if you can point the way I would appreciate the help.

Thx

Is parts list included and source info?
Many features such as the carts and the saw shelf that are worth adding to shop. Laser line up is intriguing.

I purchased the plans. It takes some effort to locate the website and understand how to download the plans but searching with the word "Carpentry"  will help in the treasure hunt.

The plans are easily downloaded once you click on profile and orders. It still is not that clear and patience is in order.

The 61 page set of plans are a mixture of both plans and very helpful photographs. The photographs are detailed and plentiful from several angles. The dimensions are precise to the 1/16 ". They are thoughtfully detailed. For instance, I liked the folding track saw rest. The plans have a curve on each arm that swings away when not in use. The exact point for the radius is on the plan.

There are a lot of openings that are shown on the plan as rectangles and squares. these can obviously be left with the curved corners from the router. I am not sure I am patient enough to square every corner. But that is the point of the entire set of plans. They  very adaptable to change to fit the need in specific cases.

The plans have a list of components with a direct link in most cases to the part on Amazon. This makes fast work of putting together a budget shopping list. Again. Fasteners, hinges and such are a matter of choice.

My intent is not to build the entire system but to create some components such as the track saw rest. and some Systainer carriers.

This set of plans at $15.00 met my expectations and will likely be very appropriate for those who want a complete system or might be interested in only some of the well  thought out components.
