I thought I'd share a couple of quick pictures of the semi-mobile table I set up a couple weekends ago. I got tired of dragging each tool to an outlet in the garage and working on the floor because all of my work surfaces were full of tools/messes.

The belt sander/grinding wheel and the drill press are from Northern, the polishing wheel and bandsaw are from HF. The bandsaw has been outfitted with a Milwaukee metal-cutting blade and slices through thick metal and steel like butter. The drill press is decent, though the cheapo vice I bought for it is trash. The grinding wheel gets the job done and the polishing wheel is 1000x better than the drill-mounted buffing wheels I'd tried to use before.

The only thing left to do is wire up a 4-outlet box to the table so that I can have all four devices plugged in at once. I'd also like to do some kind of drill bit storage to keep everything better organized.

Sounds good but I can't see the pictures... Could you try uploading them onto our site? I think our upload problems are fixed for reasonable size jpegs...

Originally hosted them via Dropbox, I just rehosted with Imgur. Hopefully that works for you.
