Movable workbench 2018.
Never static, always something to be added as can be seen in the previous setup above. This configuration was temporary until the layout nears completion when the bench part will be divided into 2 sections, both of which will wheel under the layout for storage until needed (that prediction proved to be incorrect). Storage drawers will then reside on existing shelves under the layout. Note the suitcase vacuum cleaner under the bench – perfect for servicing the table saw above.
What prompted me to recently implement the storage of the work area below the bench work was that the central work area, whilst convenient in the early construction stage, became a TOWERING MONOLITH in the room. It was becoming impossible to get around it to operate the layout.
Out with the old and in with the “new” (so to speak). Some of the gear has been attached to the rolling workbench and the magnifying lamp will lay flat and clear the layout.
A lot of the tools and equipment now reside in the green drawers to the right – I must paint the darned thing a different colour!
What is added the work bench:
The other end:
The little blue gadget on the side shelf at top right above is a USB powered low wattage soldering iron for delicate electronics.
I have still got to build my “Dalek” to house all the sets of small drawers that I have. It will mount on a lazy susan turntable with the whole gadget on castors so that it too, can roll under the layout.
Thanks for looking in.
