After having to carry my old table saw from the workshop after I sold it and then carrying the new bigger one to replace it I decided to make a trolley.

Used old cls timber 90×45
Some red wood 70×50
Had an old mountain board from when I used to power kite so attacked the trucks with my angle grinder and removed the axles cut them in half and threaded the hollow axle end to fit a bolt to lock the axles in place.

Few bits to finish.
1 support across the axles to eliminate the wheels splaying out.

2 source a flat bearing for the steering pivot that I can recess into the trolley. Will see what I can find when I get back offshore.

3 decide on varnish or oil to finish it off

Only a couple of hours work nothing fancy but it’s sturdy enough.

Thanks for your comment Anthony.

Sorry no action shot of the trolley as I stripped it down to oil it. Plus the reason for the trolley is due to my back being FUBAR after lifting the bloody saw in the first place so no way I’m lifting it again until I have a hand.

Used boiled linseed oil as I wanted to see the finish as it’s an oil I have never used, plus I have a few items I need to oil in the workshop, table saw base & router table base, all softwood.
Couldn’t justify the £32 for the ronseal decking oil just for the trolley.

First coat of oil

32 GBP for the decking oil, that is amazing, Here in Hong Kong last week I bought 4 tins for 2200 HKD. Equivalent of 55 GBP per tin. (Typical here in HK though)

That Bosch saw looks absolutely tops, I only wish I had the room for one myself.
I googled mountain boarding, Brilliant that although Id say a lot safer having used the wheels for a shop trolley.

Have a good one.

Anthony
