Hi everyone
I recently purchased a dewalt 735 planer and have been researching tool stands or perhaps a flip-top cart. I'm wondering from your collective expertise how wise it would be to put this 90+ pound tool on a cart with a rotating top, with perhaps a bench top router table on the other side. Is 90+ pounds too much for such a rotating arrangement? Thanks for your ideas.

Thanks!

I am not sure how easy it will be to flip the DeWalt 735 without removing the rear dust cover so you can close the outfeed table.

I have mine on a fixed HTC stand.

From a weight perspective, you should be able to make it strong enough for 90 lbs. I would increase the width around the bearing.

Paul Gillespie has a good build thread on this type of cart.

Thanks Dave. That is the exact cart I was looking at. I'm glad the planer extension tables were mentioned because I don't have those (hello Santa???), but will definitely have to include those in the design. The steel rod pivot is also a good idea.
