D.H.S. Heavy Duty Leveler Legs w/ Lock Nuts - 600 Lb each

D.H.S. Heavy Duty Leveler Legs w/ Lock Nuts - 600 Lb each

11-13-2016 04:37 AM by Holbs | 3 comments »

These leveler legs are great if you have un-even flooring or if you have to adjust height here and there. I have two cabinet saws that I’m trying to make co-planer facing each other that have to move every so often so re-adjustment will be necessary. I considered cheaper versions but thought since these are attached to 500+lb cabinet saws, I went with playing it safe.D.H.S. Heavy Duty Leveler Legs w/ Lock Nuts - 600 Lb each

This goes hand in hand with my previous posted project about pallet bases: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/268018I had a decision to make regarding how to move around my wood working machinery in my 2 car garage workshop which includes: 15” Jet planer, 8” jointer, Powermatic 66, Delta Unisaw, and any other machinery or cabinetry that needs to be move around. I could of went for the cabinet saw mobile bases with a price tag of $500+ (which have their own drawbacks) and 2 more Lom...

Don't buy

Don't buy

Bought this stand the other day. Get it home take it out of the box, simple to setup. Can’t get the thing to be level when tightening the screws. The pipe shifts because it’s to small for the casting, the top base sits all wonky only has one screw to mount . Taking back, bought a Sears stand for less and works fine.

A highly economical yet industrial strength mobile base

A highly economical yet industrial strength mobile base

After refurbishing my 8” GeeTech jointer, I needed a small footprint mobile base in my 2 car garage setting. While Oliver Machinery and their sister company Loma Tools (old Sunhill company) helped me with the GeeTech jointer parts, I saw some nice mobile bases on their webpage. I ordered one, it arrived this weekend, a 5 year old can put it together without instructions and now my jointer has a nice new home from the makeshift temporary base it was sitting on. This is made is Taiwan....

Harbor Freight Mobile Base with steel support bars

Harbor Freight Mobile Base with steel support bars

04-18-2015 09:09 PM by PaulHWood | 6 comments »

Thanks to curliejones for the idea and help. substituted 1 1/4 inch 16 gauge tube steel instead of hardwood, approximately a $1 a foot for material. Cut to size, clamped into support and started the holes with a 5/16 bit to mark, then finished drilling with 1/8” starter bit and step bit to 11/32 (bolts are 8mm). All but one lined up perfect, and the last one just took riunning the 5/16 bit throuhg once (likely an interior burr). I painted the steel black to match the mobile base, ...

This base should not have passed final QC

This base should not have passed final QC

Unit arrived in a box way larger than the base allowing it to slide around. No shipping foam or cardboard whatsoever allowed the wheels and hardware to break through the box. Upon opening the box, my unit had a lot of paint runs and dust embedded in the spray paint. I call it spray paint because mine was not powder coated and painted with what appears to be a spray paint can. There were numerous scratches everywhere on the frame as well as a bunch of exposed bare metal that missed painting al...

After Dylan's review of this item as a Rockler sale item ($35 at the moment), I decided to pick one up b/c I thought I was close to buying a jointer off of Cralgslist. The Good:1) Pretty straightforward assembly and adjustability2) Rolls easily3) roll/stationary lever is pretty easy to use and definitely better than the Harborfreight style where one has to screw down the stationary supports when you don’t want it to roll. 4) Everything to assemble it is included The Not So Good:1...

Because this is identical to the Wood River model, I posted my review with the other under that category. http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/3960

Wait for a sale.  Not worth full price IMO.

Just bough one of these from Rockler.com on sale for $35 and free shipping. Mine is a Port-A-Mate PM1000, but is IDENTICAL to the Wood River unit pictured in another review. I picked one up for my jointer (21” x 42” base size) and am very satisfied with the quality and function based on the cost. They are still on sale, and I plan on buying two more for the same price. If I had paid $60, I would expect a little more. I believe I would build my own rather than pay full price.

So yesterday my very own centipede saw horse pro was delivered personally by the UK Distributer. He asked me to share my thoughts on the product. First things first the communication.From the very beginning I was new exactly what was going on with production and delivery. Every time I contacted the company there was a reply within the hour. They provided awesome customer service including a personal delivery. Moving on to the tool itself, when the box arrived it looked in good shape, th...
