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...

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.

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...
