Re: Beaver tools people - cast legs - aluminum replicas?
my "venture" is on going but getting a 14 pound leg to st catherines has been very difficult!!
id be very interested in an aluminum version as well as may be jeff my owwm guy whose handling the casting stateside
there are two lengths, short for the saws, jointers, longer for the drill press and scrollies
raw castings from a foundry will need some machine work of course, not much in the case of a set of legs, just drill a few holes. there are holes in the ends for mounting tops and bottoms with casters and threeholes along the edges to fasten cabinet sides
the legs HAVE to be used to build a box cabinet of some kind, i use formica laminated plywood.
i would think that aluminum would be plenty strong enough and much easier to drill
what about the 3200 tablesaw handles? they are aluminum and would make a good test subject. i have a "plug" made of denture molding plastic
my shop is a beaver lodge
