Shopsmith storage

Prior to my fathers passing he was putting together a stand, or storage shelf kind of thing to hold many of the Shopsmith accessories, band saw, belt sander etc. He was not able to finish it, and I, out of sentimentality I suppose, would like to do so. Unfortunately, I simply cannot find the plans he had purchased long ago. I looked on the SS website, along with their companion magazine "Hands on " site to see if I could locate ea copy with no luck. I have also raised the question on the SSUG board to see if anybody there has a copy, no response yet.
Anybody here have an idea of what I refer to? Got a copy? I would really like to finish it.
Thanks for the help guys,
Mark

Try the shopsmith group on Yahoo groups. It is a fairly large shopsmith groupo with a couple thousand registered users last I looked.
There are many different versions of these torage units for the "Special Purpose Tools" or SPTs. Mine is simply two 2x4s with legs and pairs of holes appropriately sized for the Shopsmith tools support posts drilled in them. I stuck caters on it. It is essentially the same length a the Shopsmith so I can put several SPTs on it shove it against the wall, shove the Shopsmith up against it and store a whole workshop in about a 6' by 4' space. I currently have the jointer, 6x48 belt sander, 1" strip sander, and jig saw on it along with an extension table. The bandsaw is on the Shopsmith.

Well that sounds something like what he had started to build. Did you have any plans to go by, or did you just design and make it yourself?
Thanks for the input.

I really just stuck it together. Only two really important measurements are the diameter of the holes and how far apart they are. Measure these two items carefully on one of your SPTs (they are all the same). Then drill the holes every 6" or 8" down the 2x4s. Cut a few cross boards from another 2x4 the correct lenghth to make the holes properly spaced apart and attach the two 2x4s together (kind of like a ladder. add a 4x4 block the same length as the 2x4 cross bars on each end and the middle to act as legs and add some locking casters to them (takes 6 casters but only 2 need to be lockers). This sets the whole unit 5" plus the size of the casters off of the floor which I have found to be adequate. Other folks need this to be much higher as it hurts their backs to lift the SPTs up from so low. In that case I have seen people build a rolling cabinet (which adds needed storage) and bolt the 2x4 / 4x4 structure on top of it (obviously sans the casters). Of course that can be done after the fact if you find the basic setup too low.

Thanks Dave, I'll be messing around with this for a while. It really should not take too long, but I am trying desperately to keep some form of income coming in, so my focus is on that right now.
Appreciate the info,
