This is a really good idea

Stumbled across this on Facebook.


I bought a little compressor to drive the Pneumatic nail gun I bought  to build the shed I just poured a slab for.  I think this is a fabulous idea and I'm going to build one but it needs much much much bigger wheels to be trundled across  my redneck rural  yard out to the back of my pool every day.


A couple  of scrap kid's bicycles  should provide the  needed wheels.

This is a great idea Cliff but I agree.  The tires are way too small.

Sweet idea.  If mine wasn't a 30 gallon type, I would build it.

besides the wheels another flaw in the design is waste. Look at the lovely curved transition between the upright and the horizontal members.  Pretty but unnecessary and wasteful.


That means that they sawed out a lot of ply that may ( or not)  be put to some other use but for sure the side opposite of the lovely curve will not likely be used.. I'd just make a square transition  from separate pieces screwed and glued together and if I used ply I''d just slap them over each other in a plain  Jane L shape.  I like the spool for the hose . It needs a closed  box for nails  (to keep them intact and unbroken in strip form)  and a place to hang my nail gun and maybe a place to loop a large extension cord.  I think mine will have to be a tad taller to incorporate all that I'll want



But to be fair to the original:


If all he wants to do is to drag it around his unbelievably clean uncluttered shop and not up and down stairs and across yards - - well then - - the itty bitty wheels he chose are perfect.


My shop - - HA~!!  I measure the sawdust and off cuts littering the floor  by the inch.

That's a great idea. A starting point, anyway. 


Every larger machine in my shop is on wheels. Cleaning is done when they won't roll across the floor. Larger wheels would mean longer intervals between cleanings!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
