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

Nice job on the mobile base, Chris. What kind of casters did you use, and where did you get them? I am restoring a 1947 Uni (120V, single phase bullet motor) and a mobile base would be a good accessory.

They are 3 inch casters from Harbor Freight. They have brake on them of course. I used swivel type on all four corners. Thats awesome about restoring the saw. I did not really do much to this one except tune it up a little. I bought it basically ready to use. Thanks for your kind comments!
