Table saw dolly lifter
I needed to move my table saw out of the way, but I don't anticipate moving this saw often (in my previous shop, it stayed in the same spot for over 9 years).
I came up with a clever table saw lifter for my old contractor table saw. But now I wanted to move this table saw but didn't want to attach as much stuff to the bottom of it.
So I figured something for moving the saw that only attaches to it temporarily would be just right.
I needed two pieces of wood to tie the angle iron to the 2x4. As usual with hardwood, I started with some rough sawn wood, first squaring it up on the jointer, then through the thickness planer and cutting it to final width on the table saw.
This piece of bed frame angle iron was easier to drill than the stuff I used for a fence around a stove I was able to drill 12 holes without resharpening the drill!
Being able to do the drilling on the drill press set to a very slow speed made it easier.
I also have one of the workpieces backward here (oops), I fixed that after I filmed this. No doubt people will comment about it in the video.
It's tempting to cut a piece of wood about 4x6 cm with rounded corners and a right angle handle on the end. I could just put that under the lifting brackets and turn it 90 degrees to lift the saw. But I don't anticipate needing this jig often enough to make it worthwhile.
The reason I made these is because I want to work on the lights in the shop, which means I need to move my homemade scaffold to where I normally have the table saw.
