I know the game. I have 10-12 implements, pressure washer, wirefeed welder, hyd press, my scrap aluminum, steel and stainless each in their own 55 gallon barrels, bags of traeger pellets and more, all in a 10'×18' area of floor space. TETRIS is the perfect word, because I utilize the space strategically!
Wow! 10 - 12 implements for the BX23S! I didnt even know there were that many attachments!

Now, could you please post some dimensions and how you made the cuts in the metal tube and why? The more detail the better for us folks that are not as handy as an experienced carpenter. thanks
The pipe is just shy of the interior lip at each end for length.

No real fancy measuring.

The notches were cut approx 3" wide (center off SSQA Pin) opening by 1" deep for pin backspace. These were cut with my Radial Arm Saw.

The full length slice (about 1" wide) you see removed was cut with my tablesaw. This is done to eliminate the tendency of "roll" after it is bolted down.

Implement/attachment...same definition to me. The all have to be connected and are heavy!!

I need to make a loader cart just to turn it sideways and occupy less front to back barn space

I have all bulky/heavy items on carts. Carts make less work, and make my life easier. My FEL was in the middle of the bay floor. Now I can roll it out of the way. Like my wirefeed welder, metal chopsaw, bandsaw, tablesaw, router table, free standing bench grinder, etc.

My shop is made up of cabinetry, (I'm a Finish Carpenter by trade. Go figure.) drawer banks and shelves. Heck, my nuts, bolts screws and misc hardware is in rolling wooden (50 drawer) drawer banks.

Some of us are not typical.
I need a mentor to help get me organized, and I am 60. Are you for hire? I do not want to leave my mess of a life to my wife. Hoping to drastidally change my organizational life before I exit this world, lol
