Topic tags/keywords: question

I am ordering the above saw (with a riser kit) and wanted to know a couple things first.

1. What’s the least expensive way I can get it rolling around my garage…for storage of course!

2. I want to put Carter guides on it, has anyne else done this?

I got the same saw and upgrade at Xmas, and got a mobile base from Harbor Freight for $30, you just have to supply the hardwood to build it. It’s alright I guess, but if I had the chance again, I would have gotten a better designed one. Preferably one that you could engage the 2nd set of wheels when needed, rather than having to back off the leveler feet each time you wanted to use all the wheels. But for the little bit that I move it, and the cost, it works.

I built one of these. I don’t remember for certain where I found the photo but I think it came from a fellow Lumberjock.
