Since my workshop are quite small, I had to come up with a solution, to be able to move the tablesaw out, and bring the vac.
I was studying several soulutions, but found them all too complex, so this is what I came up with.
Simple, and effective, and It can even hold some tools also, so I’m quite satisfied.
I will look out for some old wheels, to make a upgrade on this, but they works fine for now.
Plywood, some old pine, aluprofile, and wheels from a baby trached carrier.

Mafe thats kinda smart. If I’m looking at it right you set the blocks under the bar. With this it raises the other end up and works like a dolly. Then when you put the blocks down the saw sits down on the floor. Simple but verry affective Good job

Good idea Mads. A lot of people get rid of their old BBQs and they usually have wheels (the BBQs not the people).

Thank you for the words.
Yes I had been drawing on some different princips with four wheels, but they took up the space under.
So I was scratching my neck, and wondering if I coud use the princips of waight and arm on this, in that way I would need only two wheels, and also I could use the space under, and it works perfectly.
Good idea Mike, with the BBQ wheels.
