Actually, I started this project some weeks ago. I’ve been working on the design for a while. I recently bought a new table saw to incorporate into the UMWW. Besides wanting a decent quality saw, my requirements were 110 V and less than 15 amps so I could power it from a standard garage circuit and hybrid design with a small cabinet mounted on legs that could be removed. The candidates were the Ridgid R4512, Sears 21833 and the Grizzly GO661. The nearest HD with the Ridgid was 2 hours away and the Grizzly with shipping added was much more expensive so I chose the Sears primarily because I could get it locally. I pretty happy with it so far.
But I wanted the saw anyway, so this purchase didn’t commit me to the UMWW project. So I posted the design on LJ partly wishing someone would shoot it down. But, no, everyone was encouraging and helpful.
So last night I ordered the caster and floor locks. 6” 900 lb polyurethane casters from SES Caster Co. on Ebay (model # CR51R06SX0X.PPXMGRX) for about $13.00 each plus shipping:
And a “set of four 7-1/2 Albion LF Series floor locks from Amazon for $57.00 :
Next is updating the design for these items then actually starting on the bottom platform.
