Shop Implements/Jigs et al #1: Easy, Cheap Mobile Base for the Small Shop (BONUS: Lifting Your Machine on Them Simply)

01-10-2019 10:45 PM by NeophyteGrant | 3 comments »

This is a slightly personalized version of a base conceived of by Don K and Brad Nailor: http://lumberjocks.com/Brad_Nailor/blog/11845 Like many, I do not have a large shop. I’m a hobbyist and use the garage. Up until a month or so ago I had used a variety of Shop Fox and HTC mobile bases on all my stationary machines but had found that the 2 fixed and 2 swivel caster design, in my case, was a hindrance rather than an asset. With this configuration, moving machines is a game of paral...

Underway again...finally #10: Re-did the casters... very early end to the day

11-18-2017 05:02 PM by JohnTM | 2 comments »

I must be the klutziest, slowest to learn woodworker on this board. Re-mounted the casters. Had to do it twice because I went the easy way and just stuck another of those small square blocks beside the existing ones. Then, silly me, didn’t check it by spinning the caster 360 degrees and they didn’t go all the way around – just like yesterday (headsmack!!!)... Of course, I only caught my mistake AFTER removing and re-mounting a pair on one end and then moving to the other ...

HTC Mobile Base Hack for Jointer

01-02-2017 10:38 PM by Randy Price | 2 comments »

I needed a way to move my jointer from its present location at one end of my shop to the other end so it would be closer to the table saw. I also wanted a way to move it out when I need it and then move it back into a corner when not in use (I don’t use it all that much). I had this HTC mobile base that I bought for my table saw years ago – I don’t have the saw anymore – so I wanted to use the mobile base for the jointer. the problem was that although the base w...

Sawstop Contractor Mobile Base for 36" T-Glide Rails

01-06-2014 03:04 AM by Sk1pp3r | 10 comments »

So here it is. I am basing this project on one several other talented individuals have done. They include, but are not limited to, Zzzzdoc, Tedth66, and Spencer. I only have the rough outline right now but plan on cutting wood this week. I have the mobile base on 4” swiveling castors. I matched the drawer base to the same height as the original base minus 4 inches for the casters. I made the base 28×68.5 and recessed the cabinet one inch all around so once the drawer fron...

Table Saw Router Station for SawStop Contractor Saw

11-24-2013 04:12 AM by Spencer | 30 comments »

Taking inspiration from zzzzdoc, tedth66, Jeremy Greiner, and others (here, here, and here), I am setting out on a mission to create a Table Saw Station for my SawStop Contractor saw. The reasons for the project are similar to theirs: I need more storage space in my small shop, I’d like a robust stand for the saw that’s easy to move around, and their’s look really cool! I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this and many hours mocking up ideas and dimensions i...

Table saw? #2: Almost finished cabinet saw.

09-02-2013 06:50 PM by Bluepine38 | 6 comments »

80 days ago I bought this 1949 Delta cabinet saw and proceeded to take it apart. I have been helping afriend with his kitchen remodel-83 rail & stile quarter sawn white oak door and drawer panels, one 8’ & one10’ corian countertops made from 3/4” slabs, so this has been a little slower than normal. Took the 85 lbbullet type motor out and took it apart, ordered and installed new bearings. Turned the commutator onmy Delta Lathe using my Cross slide rest. K&N Ele...

Mobile base for my old Unisaw

08-30-2013 11:18 PM by cpine | 3 comments »

I purchased a 1950 unisaw from a local man about a little more than a year ago. I finally got my 220 circuit in the garage workshop and I really needed mobile base for it. So in this project I build one with some pallet dunnage wood. Please watch and give your comments and likes if possible. Thanks so much. Chris Mobile base for Unisaw

Mobile Base Modified for a Delta DJ-20 Jointer

07-21-2013 06:34 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I started with a Delta brand kit that includes four corners and wheels. You are supposed to add hardwood 2×2’s to complete the mobile base. Rockler and Woodcraft sell similar versions. I picked up some 1.5” square steel tube at my local steel yard, and made this heavy duty version for my DJ-20. I cleaned the raw steel pieces with some mineral spirits, then primed and painted them. After drilling the holes at the drill press, I was ready for assembly. The steel tu...
