I’m thinking through an eventual HDM purchase. A few months back, I built a cutting/assembly table for my workshop (see photo) out of aluminum extrusion. It’s mounted on very solid casters, which are solid feet when the table doesn’t need to move (they are also mentioned in another thread here, but it’s now locked). It’s large and in this case has a lot of mass from the MDF top, drawers and so on. Would this style of construction work well for the HDM?
Also some photos of what I had built back in the day for my Shapeoko 3. That was welded steel and completely overkill, but I’m not into welding at the moment. Of course I have the option of building one out of wood relatively easily, but I really liked the result of using the extrusions for the assembly table.
