The rod is definitely the weak link. A fully trimmed Surbaban body with the rods extended would be precarious, in that case I would retract them and I think it would be fine.

These dollies are for blasting, painting and storage. Metal work could be done but the supports would need to be placed accordingly if the floor or support structure needed repair. I suppose I could remove the thread rod and bolt on special made adapters.

I already have made stabilizer jacks for these dollies. I will be installing them soon. The pieces are shown below.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

Was browsing the vendor section on Pirate, and stumbled across the JD2 "Dr Jig Chassis table".

looks like it has some interesting ideas with it. posibly a little light duty, but a place to start.

I like that it is easily built with low cost and the fixturing accessories like thread rod and Unistrut are ready made and only need cut to length.

I don't like the wheels. Unless you are rolling on a ground flat bed plate I think fixtures like these should be fixed, wheels are for dollies.

I also don't like that for me, any fixtures I would make for this jig would be only for this jig. In my shop all fixtures and jigs are governed by the Bridgeport table T slot pitch which is 2.5". Fixtures that attach on 2.5" or 5" centers can be used on three of my fabricating tables, my chassis jig or my Bridgeport mill table. All of them use 1/2-13 thread.
