I just picked up one of Woodcraft's sale priced Rikon 14" deluxe bandsaws & I am now shopping for for a HTC made style-"J" 3 wheel mobile base. HTC doesn't list anything Rikon on their website.

Has anyone found a HTC model mobile base that will properly fit the Rikon?

Thanks,

Hi Dave,,,,I also bought one. Do not know the model, but it is the 14" that free shippping sat and sun. Anyway, I don't know if it has a stand or not. I thot it did. They wanted to add $125- on for the FREE SHIPPING. I called Woodcraft in San Antonio, they back ordered it, said to pick it up there last Friday. S A is only 60 miles from me here in Kerrville. I guess my answer 2 U would be,,,build a stand. That way it can be exactly right for our needs.

I have that bandsaw. I have tried two different mobile bases and am unsatisfied with both. One of which was an HTC base. The bandsaw is very heavy. I recommend bolting the saw to a piece of 3/4 plywood and then the plywood to the base. But make sure that whatever base you get it can handle the weight. I bought another base for the saw, but haven't had a chance to put it on the saw. pkennedy

Thanks to everyone who replied. As suggested, I did decide to skip the HTC & I did pick up the mobile base that's $25 off at woodcraft yesterday.

Shop rules #164
The size of one's shop is inversely propositional to the number of tools one obtains.

I literally have no place out in the shop for a 14" bandsaw…yet.

Anoyne want a very used washer & dryer?

Boy will you be in TROUBLE!!!!!, I can hear the screaming already.
I'm in the same boat, everything is on wheels, works out very well though, just takes some manuvering time to time,
PS
Mobile bases are cheaper than additions
