Bart's  WoodRat Mount

Bart in Canada has recently posted on the WoodRat Forum a description and some pictures of his version of a pseudo wall mount for his WoodRat. I rather like his idea and he has agreed to permit me to post the content here. The buttresses make for a stiff mounting board and I am sure that the basic design can form the basis for all manner of variation with regard to the holding method.

I would suggest that storage areas are provided with lids though as I suspect that they would quickly fill with wood dust!

Bart can be contacted by email here

"I do not have wall space to mount my new Wood Rat so I had to devise a bench mounted "wall".  I happened to have a half sheet of 3/4 inch plywood on hand so that determined the dimensions. It's a "quick and dirty" solution. (i.e. glue and screws).  The vertical "wall" is 36" wide by 17 1/4" high. The base is 10" wide. The vertical "buttresses" are 4" by 11 1/2". The front and back supports are offset to allow for the screws. The "hanger" was positioned to place the top of the Wood Rat even with the top of the "wall" and I cut a 4" hole in the "wall" to accommodate the dust collection port. I had some scrap pieces of 1/2" plywood which I used for the shelf and bit/cutter holder etc. I also placed a second "hanger" on the wall to store the Wood Rat when not in use. The table mount itself at  36"x10"x18" is easy to store when not in use. Hope this is helpful."
