X-Horse ---They're BACK

X-Horse ---They're BACK

1613 days ago by Scott Oldre | 5 comments »

I did a review on this indispensible tool a few months back. It appeared at the that these were unfortunately dropped from Home Depots inventory. That was a sad day even for someone that already has two of them. Well wandering through HD’s isles the other day, I found a whole stack of them. The ones I have use aluminum pillars, whereas the new ones are using heavy plastic. I doubt the difference has any effect on the sturdiness of the stand/bench but I do like the pretty alumin...

Affordable Mobile Base

Affordable Mobile Base

1606 days ago by johnnymo | 6 comments »

I have a 12ft x 14ft shop and needed a mobile base for my tablesaw. I purchased a mobile base for my jointer/planer a few months back that I’m not happy with so I decided to try this one out from Wood River.The instructions were pretty easy to follow and it didn’t take long to get it assembled. The base rolls great around the shop and the metal cam levers are very easy to engage and disengage with your foot. A word of caution: Be careful when disengaging the wheels when you hav...

warning just got this today, this is a first look review The Woodsmith Store had this General mobile base on sale for $60, the staff also recommended it. It took me about 15-20 mins to put together, all I needed was a couple wrenches. It’s my first mobile base and I can’t believe I lived without one. Much better than dragging around my Delta contractor table saw. I would have preferred one lever to engage the wheels and move it but stepping on 2 each time isn’t too to...

Ok base for price

Ok base for price

1359 days ago by Manitario | 4 comments »

Bought this yesterday for my TS; was on sale for $65 at my local tool store, regular $95. It took me about 2 hours to assemble, and a lot of fiddling to get it to be the correct size. The instructions are fairly detailed, but neglect to mention to size the base 1/2” larger than the size of the tool you are mounting on it, due to the lip on the stand. So, needless to say, I had it assembled, and my TS precariously balanced to go on the stand when I realized that I had made it too small a...

A mobile base for Canadians

A mobile base for Canadians

1469 days ago by swayze | 8 comments »

I picked up this mobile base a couple of weeks ago for my new Grizzly 513p bandsaw. It was on sale for 65% off the regualr price of $99.99 so I thought what do I have to lose and I didn’t expect much. But the base performs excellent on the 350lb saw. The only negative about it is that in order to operate the cams that lifts the base up so the casters can make contact requires a little help by slightly pushing upward on the saw. But still very easily managed. The base is easily move...

Too much hassle for not enough stability

Too much hassle for not enough stability

I think Rockler Rocks! but with this one – they hit rock bottom. I have seen a friend having issues putting this mobile base together some time ago, and figured it’s not worth the hassle, but came upon one today myself. I picked up a shaper, and the guy (to which I am grateful) threw in this mobile base for free. The Bad!Out of the box (actually even before that) it is stated that you are responsible to providing the lumber which will size the mobile base – no worries,...

 300 Lb. Capacity Mobile Base from Harbor Freight

300 Lb. Capacity Mobile Base from Harbor Freight

1406 days ago by IrreverentJack | 12 comments »

This is a very well made kit. Corners are welded and the finish is excellent. The wheels and levelers look to be more than adequate for the weight. All the pieces and hardware come sealed in plastic bags. The box is flimsy, so I wouldn’t advise buying it online, it might tear apart in shipping. Assembly requires ripping some hardwood, cutting to lengths specified in the directions, drilling the holes and bolting it together. The directions say to drill only two holes on each end of t...

Professional Miter Saw Stand - Great tool stand and very flexible

Professional Miter Saw Stand - Great tool stand and very flexible

I purchased this Miter Saw Stand after researching many other stands at Menards and Home Depot. I acquired the unit in April 2009 for $149.99 when it was on sale (normally $189.99) and I have found it a great product. A few months after buying it Menards had it on sale for $129.99 which would have made it an even greater stand. I have two miter saws (a regular 10” stationary and a 10” sliding miter) and wanted a stand that I could mount lboth saws on side-by-side. To do this...

Heavy duty and great price.

Heavy duty and great price.

1343 days ago by carnutakp | 1 comment »

I purchased this work stand for my 10” Craftsman Radial Arm Saw. I needed something in the garage that could carry the weight, not bend or torque under heavy lumber, and be transportable to job sites (mainly my back yard projects). I purchased this in November 2009 after being impressed with the Master Force Miter Saw Stand I reviewed. I gave this unit 4 stars because I have only used it a few times, and it probably should be a 4.5. Here is what I like: 1. It is heavy and stu...
