    Hi

    I would like to built an OX of about 1500x1500, but my workspace here is quite tight. For just the OX alone, without bolting it to any table or so : how strong is it. Let say: If I flip it over the wall, is when I will lift it, all the
    frame will distort ?
    I might plan to put extra corner bracket , but by itself, is that strong or if you look at it too much.. it's too flimsy to move.. ?

    Thanks

    the frame by itself is not strong enough to be moved about like this. (you can do it, but you would have to re-align it every time you want to use it)
    you need to attach it to a stiff but light table, maybe fold up is good?
    some ideas:
