Introduction: Transformable Extended Workbench Part 1

Transformable extended workbench

Note: Due to the size of the files I will send you in 5 parts


I Zvonko Keršič home in Trbovlje in Slovenia. I am presenting an extensible transformation workbench.
  Have you seen the movie Transformers, where robots change shape? Do you like the movie? That is science fiction. This table is a reality.
Let me be the first to introduce itself as a woman.
  Can you imagine to meet a woman who is beautiful, amazing, humble, good friend, you always helpful, magic, etc..
  This sleeping beauty woke up as Sleeping Beauty and become the love of your life.
  Overreacting? Learn about the review itself.

The Basics :
In compiling the table I didn't intend to use much objects. However, when I applied, it grew and grew in size . I will describe the properties of the table.
This table is :
1 Small , medium, large, larger ...
2 Useful for everyone - from amateurs to masters, craftsmen, workshops, schools, ...
3 Suitable for any room – whether is small or larger
4 On the workbench, you can have as many features, machinery or tools you want
5 Useful for everyone
6 Has the option of quick-change preparation or machinery
7 Easy to use
8 It has the possibility of any upgrades of your choice
9 You can adapt it, depending on your possibilities and needs
10 Mobile on wheels - can be driven through the room to a place which best suits you
11 You can prepare the work process optimally - as you want
12 Folding
13 It can be transported by car
14 Is always ready to be used
15 Do not waste time for preparations - you take a table in the desired position, connect power and start working
16 It can be changed at any time

19 Productivity and efficiency of your work time is amazing
20 There is no need to search for tools and preparation - is always ready
21 It has the option of changing forms - such as Transformers
22 Is reversible

You may say I'm overreacting . I, too, would sometimes think that way. If you would ask a constructor to do something like this, he would probably say that this is not possible. However, everything I wrote above is true. Take your time to consider, do not waste the opportunity offered. This table I did in order to help people solve problems. I am sure that you will find this table has changed lives for the better, if you want to use it.

The basic material:
Cases DEWALT for workbenches
Al plates
Screws M6 and M8
Wing nuts M6 and M8
Thumb screws M8
Wheels fi 70 mm
Note: The rest of the material I stated in each unit separately.

For the base I used parts DEWALT workbench and do the transformation for themselves.

1. change in housing
On the existing housing I removed two wheels .
I made extra legs, so that each half of the table can be separated and mobile .
I cut off part of the housing that I made room for a circular saw .
I increased the original groove on the legs of 30 mm .
The plastic protectors on the legs I did notch 15 mm , height adjustments for wheel.
I edited the wheel.

When you start drilling holes Ø 8 mm, the upper end of the housing for mounting the Al plates, place them on the table. These can be attached transversely or longitudinally . They have two grooves for fastening screws for M6 . I recommend that you make a simple template that has two holes with the same wheelbase as the plates . Make a hole for the transverse and the longitudinal mounting plates . Place the equipment on the plates and arrange them as you wish. Do not secure machines or preparation until you are sure you want them arranged like that. However, if you are not satisfied with the placement of the equipment, you can always change it.

Step 1: 2.1 Miter Saw

2.1 Miter saw

2 x angular profile 20 x 40 x 405 mm, 2 mm thick
4 x screw M6 x 40 mm
12 x screws M6 x 60 mm
16 x wing nuts M6
4 x washers for M6

First, you decide how you want it to be set on the workbench. 
Put the profiles on the workbench.
Mark the holes for mounting the profile, and attach the saw.
Drill holes Ø 8 mm.
Insert the M6 screws, fit the profile and the saw with grub screws M6.
Mark the holes on both sides for mounting the panels on the table Al.
Drill the holes 4 + 4 fi 8 mm for attaching the Al plates.
Panels mounted with M6 screws and wing nuts.

Note: The saw, the profile and panels have the potential for rapid assembly or disassembly. Nuts can be fixed or unfixed by hand - without keys. For further processing of the workbench you have to disassemble the saw, profiles and Al plates. Using the saw was meant only occasionally. If you are using the saw constantly, you need to rearrange the layout if you want to keep all the functions of the table.

Step 2: 2.3. Circular Saw

2.3. Circular saw


1x plate with a hole saw blade
2x angular section 20 x 40 mm for an additional fixing and stability
8 x screws M5 x 20 mm
8 x M5 nuts
8 x washers for M5
4 x M4 screws x 15 mm
4 x M4 nuts
4 x washers for M4
8 x PVC protectors of tires
4 x screws M6 x 60 mm
4 x wing nuts M6

Place the saw in the desired position on the Al plate.
Fix it with clamps.
Check the position of the saw blade in the groove (parallelism and squareness).
Place the saw to the plate in the desired position on the table – be careful that is in the middle, so there is enough place for a saw and the electric cable.
Drill holes in the panel of the saws and Al plate for fixing the saw blade.
Attach the saw with screws to the plate and put it in the desired position on the workbench.

Note: Check for parallelism and squareness of the saw blade with keyway. You also have to test to what extent the part of the saw with the stator lowered. You do that by hand. Because you would want the saw blade to be completely fixed and perpendicular to the plate, you have to fix it with another 4 corners. This embodiment is intended for the general, flat sawing. If you want to cut under an angle, it is necessary to make a little change.
