  1. Projects Shop Built Table Saw Mobile Base

    My neighbor brought over an 8’ 1x4 piece of fir the contractors left after working on his house and asked if I could find a use for it. Of course being a woodworker I knew I could and decided to make something I needed/could share for others who may need to move stuff around in their small...
  2. Sawstop mobile base

    I know it is not made of wood but there is a small piece of purple heart underneath the saw that is not visible in the pictures. Trust me, it is there.. :) I blogged about the build here,http://lumberjocks.com/pneufab/blog/series/6221 Not a whole lot of reading, but lots of pics.. I'll leave...
  3. Flip Top Tool Cart

    Soon, we're going to be building a dedicated workshop in the backyard. So my workshop at the moment is half my garage. That means that I am limited in space. To solve this, I had multiple mobile carts carrying various tools. To use my miter saw, I'd pull the cart out and set up roller stands...
  4. Let's roll . . . the saw around the shop!

    Since my shop is also a dual vehicle domicile (2 car garage), I needed to make make my table saw a little more mobile. Some scrap wood, a piece of conduit and around $20 in supplies (castors and hinges) and it gets the job done. It took me a couple hours. I utilized the existing holes in the...
  5. Mobile base for my workbench

    When I built my workbench, I made it relatively big for my small shop, because I wanted a big base for some future projects, that I have in mind. That's why I planned from the beginning, to add a mobile base later. And now I did. In the meantime, I had a look on several videos and articles...
  6. Mobile Base

    This is a variation of a design posted by tyvekboy. This is much rougher, but was fairly simple and only took a day or so to build. The base rides 3/4 of an inch off the ground and has four locking swivel casters. Hope you enjoyed looking.
  7. PM66 restore

    I bought a Powermatic 66 at an online auction web site. I paid $350 plus $135 processing. After rental of a truck I drove 158 miles to York PA to pick up the saw. Upon my arrival back, I set up the mobile base, slid the saw onto the lift and moved it into the shop. My friend, Camron & I pulled...
  8. mobile bases

    I saw this idea on youtube and made some. They worked great. Just thought i would share it due to the how well it works and how easy they are to make. Basically takes some 2×4's, casters, hinges and 3/4" conduit.
  9. Oscillating Spindle Sander Cabinet

    This cabinet is mounted on a Mobile Machine Base and can be rolled to any work area in the shop as required. The mobile base has a foot operated control lever which makes raising and lowering the cabinet easy. The base foot lever is currently located in the back. I will be moving the lever to...
  10. Bandsaw Jewelry Box

    I recently made my first bandsaw box for my son's birthday. It was such a hit with the family that I decided to do another one for my Mother-in-Law's birthday. We had a birthday party for her this past Saturday and she loved it so I'll consider it successful ;-) The design of the box is...
  11. Mobile planer stand...on the cheap

    So…I needed a mobile base for my new planer but had a height restriction (due to it's storage spot). I also wanted to keep it cheap. I found a 1000 lb movers dolly with nice casters for about $15. Had some leftover 3/4 plywood and spent about $6 on 2×4's. Function is perfect for my needs...
  12. Homemade Mobile Base for my G0690

    Not really a woodworking project but a woodworking-equipment project i guess. Made out of 2×2x1/4 and 6×4x1/4 angle iron. Originally bought the htc base from woodcraft but it didnt seem very sturdy to me so i made this one.
  13. Mobile base for workbench or tool

    This is the mobile base I constructed for my multi-tool workstation. It does not use hinges for the stop block as most of these designs do, rather it uses a 1" steel pipe axle U-bolted to a 2"x12". The legs serve as the supports for the axle. This is a very simple and robust mechanism. The...

  15. Wooden mobile base for the jointer - nothing fancy but economical

    Cut some scrap 3/4" ply with a circular saw (obviously, it wasn't a Festool tracksaw) and used surplus castors to build this mobile base a week ago. Brads and screws hold everything in place. A second shelf (with drawers?) may be added to the stand later. The Delta 6" jointer is secondhand (but...
  16. Height-Adjustable Drill Press Table

    Well, I finally completed three upgrades to my drill press - a mobile base, a set of storage cabinets, and a pretty cool, height adjustable top. I've never posted anything on Lumberjocks before, so I thought this might be a good time! This post is mainly about the top (I'll try not to ramble on...
  17. Add-on Mobile Base

    There were 3 goals in making this base. 1. Not to cut the bench base if it did not work out. I have 2×4 legs into a 2×4 foot design. this would work on straight legs. 2. Strong …the bench is heavy and 5 ft by 26in 3. Cheap. The cost came out about $25 of parts I bought. I bought 4 3"...
  18. Craftsman 14" Bandsaw Modifications

    First time on here, figure I start posting some stuff. Detailed write up on my blog http://xylotekniche.com/2018/07/09/craftsman-14-bandsaw-modifications/. Basically added a flexible 12V LED lamp (which I found in a trash heap), and a mobile base to the bandsaw. More modifications to come in...

  20. Mobile Combo Sander Station

    This is a recent project to make my Central Machinery (Harbor Freight) combo sander more user friendly. The mobile base height gives me a comfortable working position whether I'm using the 9" disk or the 6X48 belt. Since my shop is in the basement I am concerned about minimizing dust, so I...
