What a great idea you have there. I just stole the idea of the Rigid work stands to mount my WE on. I did have to add washers as shims to keep the lateral movement out of the platform and the little rocking front to back is not that bad but I will still try to eliminate that movement as well. I use a Husky folding work table that is 24" x 24" to set my stones and other stuff on and another folding table to place my sales knives and my orders coming in and going out on too. I do like the compact route as well too because it packs up nice and neat and stows away in the trunk of my car easily. But great setup and thank you for sharing your set up. I will have to get some pictures of mine once it is perfected.

Very interested, Jed!

By the way, Florian, I never asked, but how stable is your setup?

Fantastic set up!

Judging by your set up you are good art sourcing hardware ; I have been trying to get the Ridgid flip top portable work support or another similar product.
I have searched to see if I can get said product in Europe & the supplier on Amazon will not send to Europe.
It is easy to get this from Home Depot but they are only in USA.
I looked at dealers of Ridgit in both Europe & UK and they seem to be geared to the more industrial applications and tools.
Is there a similar product which perhaps would be available in Europe .
I have searched through portable tables for camping or gardens but most are either too big, flimsy or too low.
I should like to be able to put everything onto a small cart similar to yours.
Does anyone have any suggestions whether it be brand names or keywords that would help solve this I have spent 5 hours searching sites and google images to no avail.
Perhaps another day will dredge up something!
