I like that - can be used for other things as well I would think - hollow?

Did you use 1x4 etc? to make?

I don't know how the "one eye" symbol got in place of my link, but it is an active link. I'm not the best with these computers... here is the link again

Justin - Those are great shop helps. I remodeled my kitchen a few years ago and made some helping hands, but they were not as good as yours. I would almost say that you were in the moving business or maybe a rigger of some sorts at one time in your life... Thanks for the posts

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

The beams being lifted are hollow. The lift itself can only handle about 200lbs.

The post and bottom cross piece are made out of laminated 3/4" ply making them basically an LVL.

Never a mover or a rigger just a carpenter.

I get the most use out of the one on the right. It was made for door slabs, plywood and counter tops. 4' material will balance itself on the cart unless there is a strong wind and can be moved around one handed. It has a very tight turn radius and can roll over cords and hoses because of the 2 pneumatic wheels. The one on the left was made to move windows and is adjustable for different jamb depths.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I built a crosscut extension for my TS. I’ve had big crosscut sleds in the past that helped with crosscut capacity, but sometimes pulling out the sled is a hassle, plus my shop is really small so finding a convenient location to store the sled has proven to be problematic. This 4” extension was very simple, stays in place, and doesn’t take up any extra space since it sits right above the fence support bracket. My TS is left tilt, so I don’t need left side rip capacity, and have already slid the fence rails over more to the right for added rip capacity, and out of the way.

This extension could have easily been wider for even more capacity, but at some point it would make it’s presence known and would get in the way. I had a piece of 4-1/4” phenolic material laying around that fit the bill perfectly. I added some spacers underneath until the surface of the phenolic extension was flush with the saw top. Now I can pull my miter gauge back an additional 4” without loosing control of the miter gauge off the front edge of the table. Pretty simple mod, and was about as close to free as you can get!

I like the concept...infeed support

It would not have occured to me to add an infeed support like that. I've used roller and stands for long planks and larger panels, but not a "shortie" like you have. If I were to make one, I would like a clip on better than a bolt on. The Delta Unifence poses some attachment issues with either way unless it's attached on the bottom where there is a slot.

Thanks for the idea!

Notskot

No more gauge flop. Great idea. I've been on the end of that abrupt flop many times. Most likely it wouldn't have to be any deeper because the cut would be done another way if it were longer.

Phenolic is a good material to have at hand. I made a template with it last week.

Thanks

Al

Not me.

I'm a field carpenter/millwork installer. I like working in the field. The amount of shop work I do isn't enough for me to justify the overhead of setting up a bigger shop than what I have. I usually do about a dozen built ins, mantels, short runs of custom trim, etc a year and can do them with the space I have.

If there is a version of me out there that has the kind of space pictured I'm both a little jealous and wish him the best of luck.

A few more jigs.

These are sub fences for cutting larger crown in position than the saw is capable of stock. The fences are removable and use the portion of the blade that is behind the stock fences to get the extra capacity. The biggest crown I've used them on was about 8" but there's room for larger.

A quick and dirty dovetail jig for lack of a better term to make the gutae on a bunch of Beaux Arts triglyphs for a cabinet cornice. My dovetail jig couldn't get the correct spacing and the designer wanted the slight radius on the pins.
