My basement workshop doesn’t have a lot of room, so I needed a way to move my bandsaw, jointer and planer around. These are what I came up with. The jointer was my 1st attempt, and I wish now that I’d have attached the frame to the legs – like I did the planer – rather than lifting from beneath the legs. Untreated pine and concrete floors will eventually be problematic.
The cheapest source of casters I’ve found are to buy, disassemble and reuse Harbor Freight furniture dollies. Not only can you get 4 beefy casters for $8-9 (on sale and/or w/ 20% off coupon), but you get the mounting bolts/nuts for free.
