I have 2 of these and they work great. Just wanted to post this review because they are currently on sale at woot.com for $34.99. Shipping is $5 flat rate no matter how many you buy (they have a max of 3). It’s on the right side of the page 1/2 way down. I’ve used the site numerous times. Sale will end Monday at midnight EST.

Trojan Sawhorses, Tough and sturdy

Trojan Sawhorses, Tough and sturdy

I do some subcontract for the US Navy building shipping crates for Aircraft Carrier Flight-deck equipment.Since I do the work on-site I needed some collapsible or folding sawhorses.I bought a couple of the yellow painted steel sawhorses from Home depot, but they moved too much when working on heavier crates (over 500 pounds).I ended up with some made by Toughbuilt which were better, but after a while they loosened up. And since they were made of steel I was always concerned about cutting or d...

This review for the Harbor Freight adjustable roller stand. Item #46086. The one with the red roller. I got this last week to use as outfeed support for my planer and jointer. I needed something cheap and easy to support the long beech boards I was planing. This tool has mostly been an exercise in frustration. The bad news: Adjusting it is very difficult and highly annoying. It’s adjusted by moving the rod that holds the roller up and down within the base. This is a common...

Harbor Freight 300 Lb. Capacity Mobile Base

Harbor Freight 300 Lb. Capacity Mobile Base

I own 4 of these bases. Obvisiously I like them and think they are a good product. They are well made and glide easily across the shop floor. Assembly with the first one was a bit confusing. But after that the other 3 were easy. I’ve read from several sources that hardware is missing (specifically not enough nuts and bolts). All four I purchased had all the necessary hardware. The misconception is people think they need to place a bolt in every hole of the four corner braces. T...

After writing a review for my table saw I figured I’d write a review for it’s mobile base, a Shop Fox D2057A. Everything went together fairly easily. The tedious part was installing the hardware for the casters but even that wasn’t too difficult. After having it support my table saw for over a year now, it still works as advertised. BUT… the fit and finish wasn’t too pleasing. as you can see in the pictures the corner support that holds up the tool had a goo...

Poor Communication

Poor Communication

I ordered two woodscrews and two garters on April 3, 2012 for $320.00. I sent a total of 8 messages to check on the status of my order. I said, “I’m not asking for the World, just a bit of communication” (both on the site form and via e-mail). Without a single word, my payment was refunded on April 25, 2012. The credit hasn’t posted yet but I have every reason to believe it will. The right thing to do would have been to simply tell me he couldn’t fill the order. ...

Harbor Freight #95288 - If u don't weld - bolt it!

I commented favorably on the “Rock Solid” review after my 1st assembly using SYP runners for a lightweight (100 lb) planer. I wanted to graduate to my 220 lb tools and felt the other favorable comments for this base warranted a “go”. I priced hardwood, but only furniture quality was available that was dried and cost prohibitive for me. One of our fellow LJs used square steel and welded it up, so I decided to price square galvanized tubing found locally and was amazed ...

HF Mobile Base is Dead On and Rock Solid!

HF Mobile Base is Dead On and Rock Solid!

768 days ago by Bob | 15 comments »

INTRO:I spent way too much time researching mobile bases. In the end, despite the nay sayers, I decided to give the HF mobile base a try. I paid $29.95 with a super coupon. ASSEMBLY:The metal brackets are very thick. I ripped some SYP I had lying around to the 1 1/4” x 1 1/4 dimension specified. There is a formula in the manual that tells you exactly how long to cut your wood pieces. As a double check, I placed each of the brackets (with bolts in place) against the 4 corners of ...
