Shaper Origin Track Saw/Rail Edge Trimmer
Inspired by MFT3 cart project on festool - https://festoolownersgroup.com/index.php?pretty;board=festool-jigs-tool-enhancements;topic=mobile-mft3-build.msg331957#msg331957 https://www.festoolownersgroup.com/festool-jigs-tool-enhancements/expandable-(triple-wide)-mobile-compact-mft3-cart/ Cart is built with left over wood from other projects. The parameters in .f3d (caster height, wood thickness) ensure the produced cart height is at 900mm. The top is slightly smaller than the MFT3 to ensure snug fit (and avoid an extra pass with the shaper). The top has holes for the Shaper Workstation and Dewalt 735 planer. Smooth melamine allows securing the VAC SYS in vacuum mode. There are french cleat rails (https://community.shapertools.com/t/cleat-wall-strip-size-and-spacing/2882/4) in the back for extension and underside beams, both for strength.
