Put a piece of linoleum under your bench and maybe wax it. Then the saw will just slide in and out easily.

The problem I see with having swivel wheels (even when locked) on the fixed wheel side is the saw will be able to move a bit because the wheels can still swivel. I tried this on my lathe that had two fixed wheels on one end and it didn’t work because the wheels could still swivel even though not roll. If you could mount swivel wheels that have the ability to be raised and lowered would work.

Probably should have used some double locking casters – won’t roll or swivel when locked.

Well.. there’s the answer. Can’t say I knew those double locking existed. That’s what I get for going to Lowes, Harbor Frieght, and Norhtrern Tools looking for locking casters.

Have your say...
