« Part 3: Powermatic Delivered today Part 4 of First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw series Part 5: Rotary Phase Converter Installed »

I am ready to finish the mobile base for the new table saw. I have the saw platform completed as well as the caster mounting plates. Initially I was going to install casters relying on a large thumbwheel for leveling.

After consideration I changed to a design that uses a built-in ratchet to raise and lower the leveling foot.

Final assembly relies upon getting my new welder up and running. I’ll be getting the gas today. After that, it’s a matter of attaching the caster mounts to the risers. The caster/riser assembly then is welded to the saw platform.
