Excellent base for your lighter machines. Not a cinch to put together but not bad either. Can’t find much I don’t like about it. Gave it four stars so as not to be accused unpatriotic. Buy USA product until you can’t afford them anymore.

Run, Forrest, run !!!

I could use a couple of these, but they look like a trip hazard. Any problems along those lines ?

I, too, have one under my bandsaw and drill press. I think they are great and a steal for the cost. I would buy this before spending the bucks for the over priced name brands. I plan on buying more.

David,
My shop is a tripping hazzard as is. Trying to organize. The HF base is the least of my tripping problems.

I have one under my jointer and it works out pretty good. I’ll agree that it is not the easy thing to put together but it is not that bad either. For the money I would definately get another one.

Except for being four bolts short, this is a great kit. I cut down a really dense, straight grain Douglas Fir 2×4 for the stringers and there is no deflection Works great under my table saw.

I have three of these in my shop. They do okay for lighter tools (portable planer on stand, small grizzly drum sander), but the small plastic caster wheels will not budge over even small amounts of sawdust if they are carrying much weight. I can hardly move my shopfox bandsaw using this base. But, for the price, they are hard to beat.

Have your say...
