PostSubject: This might be useful for a PBB   July 6th 2008, 9:58 pm

I found this that might be useful for a PBB.

http://christophermerrill.net/ww/plans/UTS/

This is not for a portable PBB, but for a multifunction PBB.
I like the fact that the torsion box is in the bottom part of the bench, this makes easier to modify the PBB without having to make a new torsion box.

Hey but, why do I need a torsion box?
If your PBB will be your assembly table, like mine will be, you need a torsion box.

I still need to think about the design of my next PBB, but I'll definitely use some ideas from here.

I like the design presented in the website, but I don't agree with the method used for assembling the bench.

Andres.

Andres,
Thanks for the link to the plan. I just received my EZ System and have been contemplating what kind of a bench to create. I will be working in the garage and will not need to move the system to other locations, so this looks promising. Can you tell me what changes you were thinking of in the way of construction of this bench? Thanks.

Jeff, after reading the comments of Michael Stanley http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?p=885414#poststop
I'm still thinking about the design. Maybe putting the torsion box as a base of the bench is not the best idea and is better to put the torsion box in the top.

I want to use my PBB as an assembly table, so I need a true flat surface.

Andres.

I'm looking for plans for a portable power bench.  My space is very limited and I just don't have room for a permanent table. I need something I can lean against the wall and carry easily....or maybe something on wheels.  Anyone have plans or ideas for something like that?

Talbert - are you only going to use this in your shop? If so I store my PBB below the ceiling using a cable lift system called Heavy Lift by Raycor:

Yes, I only plan to use the pbb in my shop.  Remember, I have very limited space and will use the smart table for sheet goods, and the PBB for smaller pieces where absolute precision is necessary.  I know the Festool bench can be folded up and carried around. I wonder if I could rig up something like that. Also, there are some tablesaws on foldable stands that have wheels for portability. (The Home Depot saw is a prime example.)  I believe that Rousseau may have a frame with wheels.  I may check them out.

Ok, I have it figured out. I will use the smart table for cutting sheet goods. That solves one problem. I will build a smaller power bench, probably 4' x 3' for cutting the smaller pieces, which is what I work with mostly anyway. On the PBB I will use the Incra Ultra as my fence. Yes, that should work! Maybe I can find a folding stand and put wheels on it, but that will come later. Any thoughts? Very Happy

Talbert,

That sounds like a very good place to start.
