I’ve been checking out mobile bases for my bandsaw, & decided to just put casters on it.
I checkout the base of my bandsaw, & I decided it was built plenty strong enough to handle the casters.
That’s all I had to do was cut some 1” x 2” x 3” blocks to fit in corners between the channel cross members.
I drilled some 1/2” holes in towards the cabinet, so the large flat fender washers would fit.
The reason I used fender washers, was to prevent the bases metal from pulling into the wood.
I bought 4” casters with 1/2” threaded stud, so it added 5” to the table height, which is much more comfortable on my neck,
& not having to hunch over while sawing anymore. I’m just an inch shy of 6 feet tall.
All totaled it cost me about $32.
Here it shows the wooden filler block. You can’t see the washer on top of the block
Here it is ready to roll!
