Portable/Knockdown Tool Stand- 3 or 4 Legs?
I'm planning a stand that will be used for a variety of small power tools - grinder, oscillating spindle/belt sander, small router table, etc. Because of space limitations I'm going to make it with either fold-up or knock down legs. My question is: how many legs?
Since it will be set up in different locations in my garage, and then taken down and put away, I'm thinking a 3 leg arrangement would be easier to level and easier to put away. However, I don't want something that will be prone to tip over when in use.
Any thoughts or pros and cons of 3 vs. 4 legs?
I currently use one of those portable work bench/vise thingies (like the old "Workmate"), but it sets the business part of the tools too high in most cases. My current thinking is to get one of the cheapo HF versions of this portable bench, take the top off and mount it on my own, shorter and removable/foldable legs.
