Lately I have been buying several machines for my shop so it is filling quickly. Because of the lack of space I have to move some of them and here in lumberjocks I have found a lot of good ideas for mobile stands and bases.

I built this variant of mobile raised base with scrap around the shop and 2” casters.

The mechanism is activated with the foot, so it is easy and fast.
The jointer is 1/2 inch raised, enough to move it safety.

thanks for looking.

Nicely executed. I like the simplicity of it.
