mobile benches question
 
I am redoing my small (13'x10') shop and am considering replacing the major bench with smaller, mobile ones.

I am tired of taking this tool off and putting it over here and huffing the one I need onto the bench for one or two processes...well, you get the picture. I'd like to assign one or two tools each to a mobile bench.

I'm a bit concerned about stability, and am mostly wanting help in solidly linking them together, especially if it can be done more conveniently than c-clamping the skirts.

I'm wondering if a large bolts/washers/wing nuts might work...

reading between the lines here . . .

you have different "bench" power tools you are moving on/off the main work bench?

one approach is a "stand" with two or three rotating "stations" - several thread here with pix/builds.

another approach is a bench with an "open hole" into which the "tool" (which is mounted on an "insert/cradle" to accommodate ht/width/etc.) slides. that of course still be schlepping the tools about, and probably heavier due to the cradle needed....

I put my router and planner on individual tables, with wheels - roll them out of the way, stacked against each other when not in use.
but with 10x13, you certainly have a space challenge with 3-4 'tools'

or mount each tool on it's own small footprint moving dolly, at correct height, then wheel it into the "open hole" as needed. schlepping, but no weight.

Why do you have to tie them together?
