One of the first things I really felt I needed up and running is my Dust Collector. This will need to be mobile so those little tiny wheels are not going to cut it when rolling over small debris. A top heavy out of balance machine needs fixing! (Why do they make them like they do…. I’ll never understand.)

A good and simple fix:

/

Using the same ‘wheel’ brackets to keep it sturdy. If I ever wish to revert back to the old rollers… I can.

/

/

Now it can roll over small pieces of wood, cords…etc with out tipping over.

Those look like decent wheels, the broader base should make it more stable. Well done.
