I recently bought a new Jet ProShop and I needed a mobile base due to my wife wanting to park in the garage. The high price and lack of really good reviews for any mobile base I could find to fit the proshop necessitated some inventiveness. This Central Hydraulics lift fit the bill, it just needed some longer lift runners. Some poplar and 1/4” machine screws brought it to the length I needed to span the base of my table saw. I will be adding bottom braces to my outfeed/assembly table that is still a work in progress, allowing me to lift it up and move it around too.
A word of caution, the manual says not to roll the thing around under load, but with the weight of my table saw vs. a motorcycle – I’m not worried; the wheels seem beefy enough. It starts out at 4 1/2” and lifts up to 16”, but add 3/4” to both of those for the poplar runners.
It’s currently on sale this month for $69 at Harbor Freight
