    Just as a grumpy old safety nut: PLEASE heed the warning on zinc! Metal Fume Fever is not imaginary, and can lead to lasting health implications. Simple "ventilation" is insufficient, if you weld on similar hinges, at the very least put a fan at your back to ensure you stay upwind, and consider using a ventilated mask with air filtration for fume contamination.

    That said, awesome video as usual, and I think this gives me an idea on how to finally find a home in our makerspace for a bunch of tools we've been stumbling over for a while now… Great idea, and thanks for sharing!

    You should attach hawser rope at the bottom of each tool-shelf.

    I'm currently making an all-in-one station and considering adding a scroll saw on a flip up because of this video, instead of on a 180 degree rotational table, which I think will save me some room and allow me to utilize that planned space in a different way. So thanks!

    It would be cool if you attempted to make a Record Lathe to do your own record cutting!

    how well do you think that would hold a ~ 40lb planner, or 6' jointer?

    Really helpful. I'm building a little 8×10 workshop and ideas like this will be great for saving precious working space and optimise the shop

    Eventually, in particular, I like this solution.

    Add a handle to the side with the machine? So you dont smash your fingers on accident.

    Bob! You Genius! I have been searching for a solution for this very same problem. I purchased Izzy Swans Rotating table, but, I absolutely suck at miter corners. I do however enjoy the built in storage for the selected tool. Any ideas as to how to incorporate the tools you'll need for the tools you have? In other words, having ALL the product in one area. Example would be: I have a sander machine that have a lot of different sized parts for different sized sanding. I would like to be able to store them at the table so I don't have to wander around my shop looking for these things. Any Ideas?

    Thank you for this video! I've been trying to reorganize my work shop (garage) and I have a few largeish tools that I use a lot less often than I'd like to, like my mini lathe and my scroll saw. This will be a lot easier than pulling them off the shelf they're on, finding a place to set them up, then putting them back on the shelf.

    One more thing to do to make the whole thing even "better." Allow the table top to be hinged and lifted and make a shallow storage area under it. Can be used for accessories for the fold down equipment, or clamps or whatever. Splitting the table top into two sections could also be helpful in opening one side while a device is on top on the other side.

    Hey Bob! I just finished your book and it was incredible. I don’t read books, but I read yours and it was fantastic. I’ve been following your channel for years now and your book made me learn a lot. I hope a second edition is in the works. Until then, keep making awesome stuff!

    Hey Bob. Do you think you can make a treasure chest for gadgets ang electronics?? I mean the chest must look like a pirate's chest. Can you do some like that??

    You should always wear a respirator when welding or grinding

    you should have a 'kinda' counter instead of a 'particular' counter

    Doing this!!

    Already built these tables from your plans and was looking for an easy way to do this exact thing without having to rebuild the workbenches. Thanks again!

    Cool project. Did you ever explore the 270 degree hinges that are available? I don't have a welder. Also, I was thinking of a through hand-hold cutout for more easily grabbing and swinging the panels to the work surface.

    Not a big fan of this particular project. I think that the position for each item is not optimal for working with the item. A vise does need to be bolted securely or it’s useless. And of course as mentioned the zinc fume thing.

    So creative!. I like all your videos, very creative and useful/professional. I am looking for some ideas for my DIY scoreboard which i made 2×4 the complete size, and it is foldable then it brings to 2×2 after folding and mobile. I am looking for making one diy stand for it, which should be mobile and easy to carry too, looking for kind of banner stand but with 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch steel cubes, telescopic legs, and for outdoor use. I can send more details if someone want to help throw some ideas, as i have never done one. Thanks

    Man, this video somehow reminds me of that Ned's Declassified teacher. "Don't worry! I can repair it with wood!"

    Hey Bob, just a little hint: the fixed jaw on your vice should actually protrude the edge of your workbench. That way you can clamp long workpieces in the side of the jaw that extend beyond the surface of the table. I hope that makes sense. Other than that, nice idea! I hope everything holds together with use!

    New camera? Focus is terrible last few videos. Filament spools in the background pin sharp, Bob a blur. Distracts from the great content.

    Hey Bob, great work. I would add a small handle at the end of each board to prevent hurting your fingers when you drop it on the table!

    Great, great idea!! For the vice, drill holes through vice flipboard, matching threaded inserts into bench top. I would do four with threaded nobs. You will usually only need one or two, but for something that requires muscle you are ready to go. You could put extra inserts in the flipboard to hold the nobs when not in use.

    will you put clamps on the opposite side of the hinges for the vise so if you need to really crank on the vise you wont tear it off the hinges?

    A clever solution to store a variety of tools! Thanks for posting this
