I find that the one made by your tool manufacture specific for the tool is the best. I have tried a number of different bases including the kits where you buy the wood stretchers. I have used the Jet adjustable bases for a few of my tools (bandsaw, jointer) and they seem to work OK, although when you get a real heavy tool on them that is high they tend to wable. I have my Powermatic mortise machine on a Jet adjustable stand and the base metal flexes and the tool moves a bit. I wish I had bought the Powermatic base or at least put a piece of 3/4 plywood in the base first. I use the Powermatic base for my Powermatic 66 and its great.
