I saw this idea on youtube and made some. They worked great. Just thought i would share it due to the how well it works and how easy they are to make. Basically takes some 2×4’s, casters, hinges and 3/4” conduit.

Very cool, better than spending 80 bucks.

I have the same TS and fence, but the previous owner put the wheels on the bottom of a stud wood frame. They have locks, but having to crawl under each time is a bear. Not to mention it puts it up a bit higher than I would like.
Now I can take the $80 off my Christmas list and add something else.

I have that same style homemade base under my TS. Very easy to build and it definitely works well. :)

And if you use angle iron under the legs it would only raise it up 3/16 of an inch.

very nice. I’m a tad slow, not sure I understand how they work. I guess when the bar is latched under the wood, the wheels are done and the base is moble. Then when you want to make it stationary, you simply bring the bar out from under the latch and the base rest on the floor??
Do you have the youtube link??

That’s a nifty and fairly simple idea! Might have to do something like it for the table saw.
