Chris,

Remarkable improvement on the usual mobile bases. That looks rock solid. Thanks for sharing.

Looks terrific! I'm just in the process of trying to figure out a Movable base for 2 Rolling Tool Holders. Might just "Borrow" your design if that's okay.

The angle iron was cut-offs left from other projects so i'd have to say our customers paid for that. I have around 40 bucks in it for the casters. if i had to pay for the iron i would say around 60 bucks.

If you have a big job on and the "castor locking method" is not keeping things as steady as you want then you might want to use this method. I keep a set of four hockey pucks and a big wrecking bar handy. Just lever up the base at each corner, insert hockey pucks and she should be rock steady. I have bases on all my heavy kit and it works well.
