Lightbulb Stinger I Table ideas?

I'm looking for table ideas for my soon to be Stinger I. I plan to make it nicer then it likely needs to be.

Is there anything I should consider? You folks have any photos of yours?

Cheers!

I built Mick Martin’s table: http://www.camheads.org/showthread.php?t=3691
You would need to make a few changes, e.g., the controller cubby is no longer needed and the foot print would get longer if you’re ordering the SR24 but the basic design is stout.

Here’s my newly finished table: www.camheads.org/showthread.php?t=2805

Built mine out of 4x4's and plywood, even used some from the shipping crate.
No where near as nice looking as the MM design, it is built like a tank and very functional ,, Lots of storage space for my cramped garage.

Looks great! That stinger will be bringing you sawdust and smiles before you know it!

Under your plywood top, how did you support or brace that? Still with same 1.5 tubing?

Might need some support in the middle there Baker, Stinger is a heavy machine.

Default Fwiw

I started with Mick's design but it occurred to me why cut the eight foot 4x4s when I could use the other two feet for my computer and desk. I use two 24 inch monitors as well. So I can follow along with videos on one and stop and reverse when I miss something. It makes the most efficient use of eight foot plywood too. I used the table to bring the Stinger into my basement. I attached wheels to the shipping crate and rolled it out of my garage and around to the back of my house onto the concrete pad. I used the floor trusses from my second deck to attach a chain fall and removed the crate and lifted the Stinger up and rolled the table under. My Wife and I had a little work getting it over the transom but we managed. We were 66 back then so it wasn't easy but we are creative.

My vacuum pump is outside on my downstairs deck due to noise. I used 4 x 4's and 3/4 plywood with popup caster wheels so I can move if I have to and it is very sturdy. I also have leveling pads. Word to the wise, I had to go back later when I realized I couldn't get underneath to do maintenance so I had to lift it up with a hoist and cut out enough under to be able to get up in there. I have never moved it since it works well where it is. I have cleaned the wiring and air hoses for neatness and I have a comfy leather desk chair. I have Kent's dust boot as well.

I want to add roll out shelving but haven't found time for that as yet. I replaced the hard drive with an SSD and used the original hard drive as storage for backup by removing the DVD player. I have an external I can use if I needed one. That is my setup and it works very well for me and is very sturdy does not move or vibrate at all.
