So I bid on a Delta 33-4xx Radial Arm Saw thinking there was no way I’d win with a lowball, but I’m about to get a $14,000 saw for dirt cheap. And now I need to find room lol

Minor project, but this board has been quiet lately. Amp chassis holder. Articulates to let you work on a chassis at a variety of angles. An amp chassis weighs a decent amount once you bolt all the transformers to it, and manipulating the chassis to solder inside it is a challenge. Hopefully this fixes that issue.

I’m making an outfeed table / workbench. I have three design ideas for the frame right under the top. Which ones do you think is best? I want it to stay flat and have some easy clamping on the edge. I have numbers next to each one.

New project is halfway complete: a combination outfeed and assembly table. Still need to build drawers for the cabinets, glue and edge the top, and add T-Track, but I’m enjoying working in this cooler weather. Hope all of you guys and gals are doing well!
