When I purchased my Craftsman Table Saw a couple of years ago, I just couldn’t get rid of the welded shipping frame that housed it in the shipping crate. It looked too useful to get rid of. So I bolted a sheet of ply cut to fit, added some 2X4’s around the base and screwed in some casters to make it portable. It has to share a 2 car (yeah, right!) garage with the rest of my lawn equipment and workshop, as well as everything else that won’t fit into the house, as I have no outbuildings.

I added to the top, my router table, belt sander and grinder. A power strip keeps everythiing plugged in, and only requires me to plug it into an extension cord when I’ve moved it to where I’ll be using it.

I wish I would have thought of that when I got my Craftsman saw in that steel cage a couple years ago Rich.
Smart thinking of using it for a work station.
