Default RT roller frame

Hi,

Since I'm a decently tall fellow, I've grown tired of "leaning" down and over my RT. Quite awhile ago I made a simple frame with 4 swivel casters. Worked decently. Only I've eventually gotten tired of using my foot to hold the table still. So, this past weekend, I did some rummaging around in my shop and found a different set of casters. I made an entire new frame, (2X4's). Now, the height is "just right". Well, for me anyways.

There's sorta a shelf on the frame, until I can find a decent home on the wall somewhere's, the accessories are temporarily underneath.

I included a pic of the original frame I created from old salvaged 3/4" cabinet grade ply.

I even did a little rework for my table fence. Start & stop position stops.

Thanks for the photos Ken. Looks like you have taken Bj's advice and bought a bunch of cutting boards.

Hi Dave, Bj

Thanks, it was a fun short project. I'm thinking of adding another shelf. Still in the thinking stage.

Oh, Bj is correct. Those are my OP jigs stacked up. (Told ya's I had all the jigs from OP).
