Here is my Craftsman table saw and its brand new-ish mobile base. The saw is badly in need of some upgrades. This is the first one completed.
Total project cost. $10 and change for 4 door hinges. Everything else was scrap wood or were parts I had on hand. The release/lock for the foot lever is simple/crude, but very effective. The scissor-like levers provide the lift with a simple use of the foot. The smaller bottom lever has a rollerblade wheel bearing on the end for smooth operation.
Comments, suggestions, critiques, and other ideas welcome. :) Remember, all scrap, and I don’t have a lot of it, so it isn’t too pretty but it sure works great!
BTW – My first LJ post.
