I would probably have added legs to the corners, and fastened them with hinges or a bolt of some sort.
As long as the platform the SO is mounted on is solid, it should work.

Or add a motor and turn it into a 4th axis. :D

That's a wonderful idea!

I have a torsion box for a 750 mm by 1000 mm machine, and I wanted to add legs to make it a cart. However, the machine would be too wide to fit through standard doors without taking the legs off. Hinging it in the middle like that would allow the cart to be narrower. I can't reuse the legs I've already made, so I may not adopt this idea after all, but it's something to consider.

Interestingly enough I am actually in the middle of upgrading my (constantly enhanced and tweaked) SO2 with just that type of a table.
I have designed mine such that it is a torsion box table, 2 - sided., such that I can rotate it 180 degrees if I should need large work bench space instead of the CNC at times - and also to store vertical so that I can re-capture space when not in use.

I will try to remember to grab some pics and post them.

I know this is an old thread, but do you happen to have pictures of your torsion box cart?

Now that you've had a couple of years to use it with the cart, have you had any issues? Specifically, I'm curious as to whether storing the unit on its side requires re-calibration when you go to use it again.
