CNC "Cart"

Post by JMOlshefski »

Looking for ideas (pictures) of different "carts" that your machine sits on, would like to see some with storage: drawer, controller, pendant, etc.

Do a search on this forum for “Shark Tank” you will find multiple examples of set ups for your Shark.

Please realize that there are many sizes of the Shark and Piranha.

Is there a particular size you purchased that you want a cart for?

I don't have completed pictures on this computer but this is the start of what I built for my Shark HD4 Extended bed. It's 2 1/2" by 3/16" angle and 2 1/2" by 1/4" square tube for the legs. I mounted the controller and the VFD for the spindle under and just recessed enough that I can hit the E-Stop and adjust the VFD without anything else hitting them. Also keeps the debris away from them and still easy to blow the dust off with the compressed air. It sits on heavy duty casters that lock in both swivel and rolling positions so it stay extremely stable during use and is still easy to move around the shop. The expanded metal tray on the bottom holds the water bucket for the spindle and the dust collection bucket.

My version of the "Shark Table".
Table is made from 3/4" oak plywood.
I over sized the top by 3" to allow a small shelf for setting tools, tape measure dial calipers, and whatever.
