DIY Moveable Scroll Saw Stand With Evolution R185ccsx+ Saw #Evolutionpowertools #scrollsawstand

  • Published on Apr 29, 2019
  • With the acquisition of this Ryobi scroll saw, I had to find somewhere to store it, and whilst I was at it, somewhere to use it. I came up with this idea of a rolling stand, so I could just roll it out to use, and then back in place to store it out the way. I was limited by space and height. So hopefully I managed to find a solution that works very well.
    I wasn't overly keen on the finished item, but I think now it's because I don't like the base, perhaps I could curve the edges of the base in the future to improve the overall look of the thing.

    "Slides in like a dream...." Great chatting with you at MC yesterday, and now I see what you mean about the dust extraction on the saw. I understand what you mean about the balance of form and function, but I liked the end result, especially the scrap bin. 😀

      Our off cuts and pieces of scrap to our American friends would probably be classed as dust! 🤣

      @James' Man Cave Imagine if our American friends tried to put their 'scrap' walnut slabs in there whilst working in their 'tiny' workshops 😂🤣

      Hey Buddy, was great to chat to you also yesterday, thanks for showing me what a vicious circle looked liked! 🤣 Scrap bin works well, and Ive used the scroll saw a fair bit of late, which was the main purpose of the build! 👍

    Function over looks every time. Just a tip on your track saw cutting don’t have your blade fully plunged, it only needs too just clear the depth you are cutting and it will be a lot easier on the tool. You probably already know this so just tell me too keep my nose out 😂

      Thanks Philip, that's what I decided on in the end, function over looks. As regards the blade, yes good point, however only did this in the last 2 shots of the saw just to get a better image of the evolution blade at work. All that other passes were made as you say with the blade just cutting through the bottom of the wood 👍

    I'm glad it is not just me that buys tools with that ethos. lol Get the tool first and worry about where it will live later.
    I guess if you don't like, then you don't like it, but I think it looks OK. I need to do something similar for my scroll saw rather than an old chest of drawers on castors!
    Good job James.

      Why be put off buying a tool cus you can't store it anywhere! I'm gonna have to move stuff into the living room next lol. I think it's the base that puts me off, if I hadn't of fitted the castors, then I could have curved or made the base a bit more rounder. If you make something Pete, you should post some pictures of it on Instagram

      Thank you. As its functional I know I shouldn't be to concerned about a workshop item, but I know I can do better

      Thanks buddy, I think it's the base that ruins it for me, if I hadn't have put the casters and spacers on, I would have curved the sides of the base

    I think it turned out very nice. Mine sits on a shelf, so I need to get busy and make a similar type cart.

    • James' Man Cave

      Thanks, I was also thinking of making a sliding shelf to sit the saw on if this didn't turn out as functional as I wanted
