Thumbs up Rolling cabinet supports

Got this yesterday in a email. Figured it would be a good one for all of us for an idea for a rolling cabinet. Here is the link for those who are interested.

Hi Glenmore

thanks,,, Good tip but I don't get it

If you'er going to put wheels on a cabinet why not spend the extra buck or two for wheels that have locks built right into the wheel asm.

KISS thing comes into play on this one.. ( KISS= keep it simple stupid )

======

Just a add on note * *** I agree with Bob N on it's setup, we have all stood a board on it's edge(side) and the 1st.thing it wants to do it flop over...maybe if had a foot on the bottom side to help with that it may work, but I think the 1st.time you would use the cabinet/table the brake/lift would flop over/off the brake..
I think it would be a pain to try and cam/lift it on top of the brake (board) without a quick kick on the other end to get it to stay in place then it comes to using the table/cabinet with just a little bit of presser it would snap over at the wrong time..not to safe...

Most of the wheels with brakes on them are made so you can just put the front of your shoe on them and with the weight of you body/leg they are locked in place and the same thing when you need to unlock them, all that's needed is to put your toe under the brake and lift just a little bit and you can move it from place to place...

Well sometimes you can't get to the brakes on wheels. Or you don't have brakes on them this would come in handy. I figured it isn't as complicated as what Norm Abrams come up with with rolling workbench/workstation that he shows on his program. Plus this is a good feature for the disabled wood worker that can use his feet because of his or her disability all they had to do was pick it up a little and put a rope through to disengage it.

Hey Glenmore, BJ,

I tend to agree with Glenmore on this one. I'm not disabled but I sometimes have trouble with the levers on the wheels. I think this is also a simple, elegant solution that would work for those that find it useful for them.

Both systems are good, and quite simple. It just depends on the user.

Ed......:-)

I received this plan the other day also and think the "concept" is good, but the "design" appears poor. What is to keep the table from being pushed and the hinged legs giving way? There is no means to lock the folding legs in place offering the needed stability to make it a safe solution. I think with some additional design considerations, it could be a very useful option.

So BJ,

Is it the wood face that gives you the name yark?

Hope you're not limping from the pulled leg.

I hope you didn't use metal fasteners on that tree that would be a curse.
