Greeting,
I am in the process of moving to a new house. Shop size will be one car garage. I would like to incorporate my Sawstop contractor saw and assembly table so they are one unit and could be moved out of the way when needed. I was hoping to make a foot print of 5 feet wide and total of 6 feet deep. It will be on a garage floor and so I was thinking 4 wheels would be better than 6 due to irregularities in the concrete slab. My question is how to build the base so it will be supported in the corners but will also be able to handle the weight of the saw and other cabinets. I would estimate the total weight on the base would be about 600-700 lbs.

Thank you for any help

Jake

I’ve seen a lot of setups watching videos, but I’m sure you can get the information you need simply by searching.

In a few seconds I found this.

I did similar, but kept the assembly/out feed table separate. A 5×6 unit in a one car garage is going to be tough to work around even if you can move it. Two 3×5 units will give you more options as you can rotate and move them independently.

I used the sawstop mobile base and Rockler retractable casters for the assembly table. Both are rock solid when the wheels are retracted. I used levelers on the assembly table to ensure I could match the height of the saw. I found I would typically use them in the same location so I rarely had to readjust. Routed dados in the top for clearance of the miter bar.

I just don’t see the benefit of a monolithic set up if you want it to be mobile.

I am now realizing a two part set up would be better. Thanks for the input!
