I bought an old 1953 Boice Crane jointer and it came on a home made base. The problem the base raised the jointer 6 1/2” off the ground to a working height of 40 1/2”. I’m 6’ tall and that was too high for comfortable jointing. I thought I could do better. So I came up with a design for a low profile mobile base on 3” casters. I was able to lower the working height to 35 1/2”, much, much better and I still can move it easily. The last picture shows the old base. The wood is DF and oak, just what I had laying around.
