    End Mill Stand with under container storage.

    Ended up purchasing an Endmill that was on sale, but then needed a good stand to put it on. At 750#, it needed to be fairly sturdy and I wanted under storage, sortimo style. This is what I came up with, and I am happy with the end results.

    I see you have it mounted and all; but that weight on might be OK on 4 casters, but the CG will be surprisingly high. SURPRISINGLY as in tipping over.
    I'd relocate them fully outboard.

    I was kind of worried about that after I built it. It looks taller than it actually is in the video, if it becomes an issue, I will remove the casters and bolt it to the floor. As of now, it seems really stable!
