I tried a number of different types of wheels and could not find any that could swivel, lock, and variable height. I don’t plan on moving the table around very often, but I still want the option to do so. And, since the garage floor slopes, I would need to be able to compensate in the event I ever want to move the saw to another location. In any event, I tried to pick a couple of pictures that show the logic of the wheels. These have the 1/2” x 13×5” removable bolts (stems). The second to last picture shows the assembly of the parts left to right. I buried a square nut in a plywood sandwich and use nuts below and above to lock the wheel assembly in place while still allowing the wheel to rotate. The table top and drawer fronts are laminated from a piece left over from my assembly table project. The cabinet has five drawers and is 48” wide x 28” deep. I plan to do a bog on this project, but these shots pretty much sum it all up.
