This is real easy to move around the shop, & its real sturdy.
I welded this up some time ago. I’d like to share this, & it’s real easy to build.
Only a few welds, & its done. This stand could be used on a multitude of different tools.
If you want to make one like this, all you need is an arc welder.
Then take trip to your local scrap iron yard, or welding shop.
Welding shops usually have a pile of cut offs, about the same as as woodworking shops do.
I found some 3” x 3” square tubing with 1/4” thickness, 1/8” is plenty strong.
A piece of 1/4” thick decking for bolting down the sander.
I found some old 4” casters for wheels,
& two 1/2” x 2” carriage bolts for the leg levelers.
Just weld everything into the same configuration as my stand.
The sander is just a cheapo from harbor freight, but it has given me many years of good service.
