I know it is not made of wood but there is a small piece of purple heart underneath the saw that is not visible in the pictures. Trust me, it is there.. :)

I blogged about the build here,http://lumberjocks.com/pneufab/blog/series/6221 Not a whole lot of reading, but lots of pics..

I’ll leave the boring details out, but if anyone has any questions, please let me know.

Thanks for looking!

Wow! That looks factory made! I’m sure you can sell tons of those things. Great work. I’ll take your word on the purple heart.

That’s a sweet looking base. I’ve got the Industrial Mobile Base for my PCS because I liked the 4 swiveling casters and I’ll have to say I like how yours has a much smaller footprint. The Industrial Base was designed for… the Industrial Saw so it’s got a good 10” behind it or so that keep me from pushing it all the way against a wall.

Is the raising / lowering done by retracting the feet?

GT- Re; Raise and lowering…Yes it is. I use a 12” extension on my impact with a 9/16” swivel socket and zip em up and down in a few seconds without bending over. The feet have rubber grippers on the bottom so I just tighten them until they sit on the ground and they act more like brakes. I have not felt the need to raise the casters completely off of the ground with the feet, but they are certainly rated for the weight. I try “checking” into it a few times and it barely wiggles, so I am really happy how stable it is. I still have to extend the legs for the extension to make the difference, about 4”, but overall, really happy.

Have your say...
