Flatbed Laminator or modify my existing setup, advice needed?
I have been investing in new gear recently and have had a CNC Router (Yeti Smart Bench) which is exceeded my expectations. Looking at the design from this and then seeing the FlatBed Laminators (Mounter Mate – Rolls Rollers etc) I thought this has got to be the next purchase. A few posts on a USA forum discussed do you need both a roll to roll laminator and a table, one person said well if a Flatbed can do Roll to Roll, why can a Roll to Roll not work like a flatbed. The obvious reply was if you mount an 8ft board on a flatbed you need 8ft to give or take and on a Roll to roll you would need at least 20ft. So I thought about this for a while and realised that in my situation space isn’t a problem, it’s moving benches around or setting up trestles to catch and send through the machine. After drawing a few designs for some fold-out benches I came across an idea. Basically what I need are two table tennis tables! fold out to use fold away and roll off when I have a vehicle in. I have found this link which actually is a table tennis system that the two sides are separate and then can be used together or individually. I have ordered this to try it out but thought if others have the same issues I do this might avoid custom building something or struggling as I have or spending a small fortune. As always interesting to hear all your ideas/solutions.
