I think that is what wore out my bosch slider faster than it should have. My new saw I store flat for this reason.

Nothing I hate more than a THIEF

What area of town did that happen in? A few years ago I had someone break into my truck down off Dartmouth and Santa Fe, they stole about $4k worth of stuff that I had piled in the cab because I had a couple big ticket items in there that day. I lucked out though, they tried to steal the whole truck and failed. They borked my whole ignition in the process, had to finish ripping it out with a slide hammer and used a screwdriver to start it for a while.

If they could have got somewhere where they could have worked on the boxes in back, I would have been out a heck of a lot more.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Just picked up my 16' V-nose yesterday and after seeing all kinds of great layouts on here I am going to most likely start my racks and shelves this weekend. I just have a question about fastening to the walls. What is everyone using to attach racks and whatnot to the walls? I think that my inner ply skin is just 1/4 inch so I know it won't really hold anything. Is it as simple as screwing it to the uprights? Thanks for all the great ideas and pics. I'll post mine as soon as I am done putting all the shelving in.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


The trailer is 102"x24'. The remodel on this trailer is mostly because I didn't insulate it when I first set it up. So today I started to empty everthing out and gutting it. I will be insulating the walls, lid, and floor. I will be posting some pics as I go, so any input or ideas would be appreciated. The trailers primary use is for window and door installations but sometimes gets used on some remodeling jobs. So far I have pulled out the bench, cabinets, and shelves. I will also be removing the window and trim rack. I will post some more pics once we have a "blank" canvas.

These are the first pics of the trailer. I had owned it for a few days at this point. Some changes have been made.

Nicely done. No clutter, easy access! Most of all I can see that everything has "it's place". Sweet.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


I posted this in another tread before, but here is my trailer. It is set up so the shelves just lift off the cargo rails (tool free install and removal), so I can haul a trailer full or cabinets if I need to.

The fancy brackets are just for fun, any brackets would do. The other big ideas are the double rails for slat wall fixtures and the heavy wire cages for keeping tools in place:

I'm going to be putting together a drawer-based 12-foot trailer over the next few days after Christmas, and I imagine it will look pretty different from anything here. Pictures will be up soon!

It is a decent saw. I don't like the guard compared to the bosch or the new makita. I wish I had paid extra for the bosch since I use the guard almost all the time. That said the fence has stayed square and the saw seems to have enough power when combined with frued thin kerf 24T ripping blade.

Ok, so I've FINALLY gotten the opportunity to start working on this (we've just been buried in snow and sub zero temperatures for the last 3 weeks) today. I do have some CAD mockups of the basic design, showing structure and the various things we'd have attached to it. We're a small remodeling company that does a little bit of everything, and we have to save time by eliminating trips for that "one tool we forgot". We bought a 10' trailer for about $500, put in $100 worth of parts to repair and then the estimated cost of building the drawers, painting, etc is about another $500 or so.

Here are the CAD mockups.
