I'm a fan of bolting them to an oversized chunk of 2x material and then clamping that to the bench. It never fails that as soon as I actually get something fixed in place I need to move it. ...

We had one at the lumber yard when I was still there, used it much like you would a radial arm with only one cut direction--straight. It had a monster motor and I believe an 18" blade. We'd bundle...

We used a 4x4 Chevy 2500 to drag one off the top of a hill and down about 240 yards. It was on a solid caliche base though, so not really anything to dig into. It did well.

I'd contact some...

I received my 4th 'recall replacement' extinguisher over the weekend. Problem is, I only called in 3 units. Dunno what to do with the new one that showed up. It's much nicer than any of the little...

With lack of a mill, the hole saw is my go-to for coping anything. It can beat the hell out of the drill press, but since it's not some show piece nor anywhere near new I don't mind.

I saw a truck with a snowplow once. The city owns 3 trucks that have the big blades on them, but they rarely get driven, and I've never seen them other than on TV.

I have seen twice as many...

Moving fast as usual, and doing a great job at it.

I've yet to even take pictures of mine as requested, lol. I suspect this is why you tend to get things done.

I like the idea of the plywood sheet before the metal skin. I've never measured, but the metal framing in mine is 18-24" span. Like you say, you need something to add shelves or rails. This one...

And I thought my old Bronco had issues. It's always had a skim-coat of rust that's worried me, but after seeing yours I got no problems. I am glad I don't live in the North.

Ya know, I walked by it today to refresh my memory and make sure I wasn't telling half-truths. I suppose I should have thought to take pics then.

That's mainly what I use Old Man's trailer for. I built a cubby high in the nose that will hold the bulk of our small gear. It works well--but it's where I ran into the sheet good problem. Since...

I believe it's going to be better, even if it wasn't entirely necessary. I spent all last week's holster money on the upgrade so at least it's paid for already.

And now I have an extra 20T jack...

Just something that'd stand up. No requirements given. I have no problems with thin stuff, we could always stiffen it from the backside if it needed it.
