    Miter saw station/router table...on wheels! For a while now (since June when my wife and I ripped out the powder bath vanity and put in the garage) I've been kicking around the idea of making a miter saw station. I had planned to put it on wheels to allow me to move it around the garage and...

    HTC Mobile Base Hack for Jointer I needed a way to move my jointer from its present location at one end of my shop to the other end so it would be closer to the table saw. I also wanted a way to move it out when I need it and then move it back into a corner when not in use (I don't use it all...

    I recently purchased the Shop Fox W1706 14" Bandsaw. It weighs 275 lbs and has a 18" x 15 1/2" footprint. The bandsaw sits on a closed cabinet. On the underside of the cabinet, at the corners, are 4 holes (in pretty thick looking plate metal) to accommodate the supplied bolts and rubber feet...

    Thought I would give it a try and see how well this operates…was built in a hurry because the heat in Phoenix hit 100 degrees today, and if you've ever tried to handle metal tools in this heat you'll know what I'm talking about. It works better than I expected. Will make a few minor adjustments...

    My table saw allows me to use total lock casters and I was wondering if using these over a mobile base like the HTC 3000 would be a better choice? There is much less hardware associated with using the casters. Cost of the casters is about $10.00 less and I have used these before so I know they...

    As I design & build (and re-design) my new bench it is now time to start thinking about adding a method to move the bench. Current plans are for the bench to be against a wall with plywood storage behind it. But, I am sure that there will be the need to move it to the center of the shop, or to...

    A simple solution to moving lightweight tools and cabinets around is to have a dolly handy. I spent quite a bit of time trying not to buy another mobile base. The router table probably weighs under 45 lbs, but is a bit awkward to pick up compared to simply pushing it on wheels wherever I need...

    I decided to signup for this site based on the excellent discussions I have read. I hope my first post is as fruitful. I have been fortunate enough to be able to put together my dream workshop, all Powermatic tools: PM2000 table saw, PM1800 bandsaw, 209-1 planer, 60HH jointer, 3520B lathe...

    What's your take on a mobile base that would use four swivel locking casters for an 8" belt sander? I have a small shop and ease of movement of all of my machines is a huge consideration. I have a mobile base under my radial arm saw with only the two front casters that swivel, so if I need to...

    I recently acquired a Rigid 2412-1 table saw. I need a mobile base for it to make it work in my small shop. The Herculift seems to the one the Rigid site recommends but they seem to be sold out? Can anyone please recommend a place that might still sell parts for an older saw like this? Or have...

    I'm sure most of you are aware of the free LED lights that HF gives away as promotionals. They are free with a minimum purchase and also without any purchase, (store only). I have lots of them in my home. They are really great. They have a built-in magnet and a hook for hanging. They are really...

    Ridgid TS2412 - barely been used and in excellent condition: Belt Drive, Rust free, lifetime warranty regardless of owner, all manuals and wrenches…just a well cared for machine. I upgraded it with cast iron wings ($110 shipped) and a mobile base ($50). I also purchased a NEW zero clearance...

    I am posting this question to see if anyone has any experience with this or insight. I am looking at the sawstop 3HP proffesional sawstop with 36 inch fence. However I have a small shop and like to move the saw around I don't want to mess with an adjustable leg extension support on the saw...

    A few years ago I designed an adjustable height workbench. I also incorporated a mobile base into the design. People who saw my bench REALLY liked it and I started offering plans for it on line. But, I have no idea how much people are interested in having a mobile base in their workbench! I...

    Has anyone had trouble ordering and actually getting items from a Woodcraft retail store? On March 7th, I went into the Woodcraft retail store in Woburn, MA. to purchase the Rikon slow speed grinder. I was excited to find out they were going to give me the February sale price. Due to the...

    I'm about to buy a Grizzly G0690 for my small garage shop that I also share with cars. I could just get a shop fox mobile base, lots of people do and are happy. I really like the built in bases that come on some table saws better. Some of those saws are either above my price range, some are...
