That B&D Workmate is such a handy tool, but heavy to move about, especially when I have a tool on it. It is of a great height for things like my sander or planer. Lower than bench top height.
I got this idea somewhere and finally got a round tuit.
Just took a 3/4 plywood and cut to square dimension of the first, shortest, feet. Added 1-1/2” to that dimension to add a 3/4 edge all around. Don’t want the Workmate to slip off, especially if there’s a tool onboard!
Added some 1X poplar to width I needed to get me to the height when the 2nd pair of legs are folded out, after subtracting the height of the casters. I think that was about 7-1/2” total, minus casters, and 3/4” thick bracket on bottom to mount casters to. Attached the 1X poplar to plywood base with pocket screws.
I can collapse it down and slide away under a table.
