That's amazing. The details I notice - 3 hinges, not 2. The holes in the rings for the feet to prevent water from pooling, not one but 3 (again).
Table is secured with knobs to allow removal and cleaning. That's one of the best designed products I've seen, DIY or commercial.
I know I'm late to the party here, but this mod is magnificent. It's the kind of mod that's so good that I actually get bummed out because I'll never have that level of skill. Just an incredible job, Peter.
Finally got around to doing the description I promised. Problem was, that while doing it, I didn’t document anything. Now I have redone some of the parts so I could take pictures.
The measurements on the pictures are all milimeters - sorry guys
First I bend four pipes (1200 mm long, 34 mm in diameter) using a hydraulic pipe bender, cut them to the right length and welded them together.
To make sure that the angle and width was right, I made a frame with the correct measurements and fitted the pipes to that.
This is the measurements I used.
I used 3 mm metal sheet (526 mm x 582 mm) to form the base of the cart.
First I used a break press to make the edges (20 mm). Afterwards the measurements should be 486 x 542. Then I cut out the corners to fit the 34 mm pipe.
Then I cut out the hole for the drip tray.
To make the cup which holds the legs in place I used a pipe with 52,5 mm inner diameter and 20 mm high. To make sure rain water does'nt gather in the cup, I cut out 3 holes in each cup.
The last two bits is the pipe which I used to stabilize the cart at the top, and the bracket which holds the table in place when its folded up.
The stabilizer is just a piece of 34 mm pipe, 505 mm long.
The bracket is a 8 mm hydraulic pipe bended as shown in the picture shown below.
Assembling the cart
With all the parts done, I assembled the cart. All measurements apart from the placing of the cups are shown in the picture below. To place the cups I would recommend just placing the WSM on the cart to see where to place them.
Everything is welded together, except for the bracket which I drilled two 8,5 mm holes for in the frame.
Then just remain panting it
How to make the table is described in the next post - can only have 10 pics in 1 post.
The table is made of a kitchen top bought at Ikea.
To get the right radius I used the lid from the WSM.
After shaping it, I did the routing.
After that I cut the table in two and put it back together with 3 hinges.
Then I made the lid holder (see the picture for details) and attached the stop for the bracket. I have no measurements for the stop, but you should be able to measure that yourself if you gotten this far
