I needed an improvement to get my table saw around that was more functional for stability, mobilty, and adjustability. I took inspiration from a website called benchmark20 i believe is what it was called. I modified a few things per my preference.
In the first photo (the underside of the base I took it before I added a spacer on one side, (1/4 extra under the fixed wheels) that way when the toggle bolts are jacked up a 1/4 inch it is level. Also these bolt toggles allow adjustabilty for unlevel floors. Fixed wheels on one side, on other side swivel wheels with toggle jacks, (3 inch casters (SES EBAY CASTERS USED).
I wanted my tablesaw to be 38 inches, it is more pleaseant on my body. The side without toggles has fixed wheeles (non-swivel). Once jacked up toggles on the otherside it is very stable, won’t budge an inch. The toggle clamps are descatco 603 (600lb rating). I took grade 8 bolts and had a guy weld 3/8 inch thick by 1.25×1.25 inch steel piece to the bottom of the bolt to add more surface area for stability. Enjoy.
I used 1/4 inch angle iron to bolt to the wood and tablesaw, i am working on an upgraded dust boot for dust collection for this saw as well.
