    Default Shopbot Control Console

    Hello everyone,

    It's been quite a while since I posted and I thought maybe a look at my control center would give ideas to those working on new setups. I got so tired if my cluttered shelf on the wall - that I made this.

    Practical? Yes. Overkill? Probably. I used mostly scrap from around the shop. My control computer is housed inside the lower doors. There is a furnace filter mounted in the base and the cooling fans pull fresh air up thru it. So I have a clock, USB port, enclosure cooling fan temp controller, spindle remote keypad (Colombo), remote pendant, and spoilboard vacuum gauge - all arranged for easy access.

    What do you think?

    That's nice enough to go in the bedroom to store your smelly socks in!

    Almost perfect! In my shop it would need to have at least a single cup holder somewhere! Very cool. Thanks for posting. Russ

    Your right Russ. I think he should redo it! It needs a mini fridge built in to.
