One option for the Laguna 14/12 mobile base.

Replace the as provided post feet with dual lockable (rotation and rolling) casters. Easy to level. Not been an issue with mine. Very easy to do.

Seem to recall I got my casters on sale at Woodcraft for about $10 a corner. Bolted right in. Raises the cutting height by ~ 3 inches. Being six feet tall, not an issue.

Would vote for the Laguna. Also consider getting their Resew King blade. You will not believe how smooth you can cut with it.

Good luck!

And +100 on the blade. I’ve been resawing every kind of hardwood imaginable (cocobolo, bubinga, maple, walnut) for 11 months and it still cuts like butter. And since it’s carbide it can be resharpened. Plus as an added bonus I called customer service about something and mentioned the video I posted and they sent me another 3/4” resaw king as a thank you which is still in the box. Bought the 1/2 and 1/4” blades too. Change the blade, center the blade and no drift. I know Snodgrass says to center the gullet but Laguna says to center the blade.

To me the BS is the hardest tool to set up since EVERYTHING affects EVERYTHING else. Those blades and those guides make for an awesome combo. YMMV but I doubt it.

OK. I’m off the soap box. I just love the tool.
