I have that same saw, more or less. I also got mine for free and it came with a 52” Biesemeyer fence and table. A buddy of mine bought it many years ago to build out his apartment in Manhattan. When he finished, he had to get rid of it because it was an apartment, after all, so he gave the saw to a mutual friend for work on the house he just bought. Then last year I bought a house and the mutual friend was looking to get it out of his basement so I snagged it. Good timing for me. One of my first projects on that saw was to make a mobile base and close up the sides so sawdust wouldn’t spill onto the floor.

By the way, my mobile base is about as simple as you can find. I made a plywood angle with 2×4 bracing and screwed 2 fixed casters to the bottom. Then, with the wheels just touching the floor, I screwed it to the saw base legs. To move it, just pick up the other end like a wheelbarrow.

Its a great saw. Its a better tool than I am a carpenter, and I’m very happy with it.
