i’m at the beginning of building a mobile base for my benchtop tablesaw (ryobi bt3100)
originally was just going to do it all in ply, but i have a nice big piece of 3/4” phenolic that i thought would make a good flat bottom, since the ply is not.
ran into a problem when screwing on the casters. i quickly found out that it does NOT take lag screws well!
but i’m puzzled how to affix the sides and inner walls. i’d hoped to pocket screw,but that’s out now . i could use L bar with through bolts and screw into the ply,but thats a lot of expensive l-bar ($10-4ft) and hardware.
right now im thinking build the box with a bottom allw ith pocket screws, and just bolt it to the phenolic in a few places…maybe that’d keep it flat enough…or maybe not….
