I’m doing some rearranging in my garage to accommodate my Supermax 19-38 drum sander. I want to mount it on a cabinet and wondered if anyone has used a swivel base to mount heavy machines? It weighs about 270 and right now it is borrowing space on my roll around router table. The router is now set up and ready to go back to the table. The Supermax dimensions are 24’’ deep and 40” wide. If I could easily rotate the conveyor portion of the machine and leave the motor mounted on the cabinet it would work perfect. I’ve seen lazy susan swivels that can take quite a bit of weight but wondered if anyone had done this? I’m severely challenged for room so that’s the reason for the rearranging.

Not sure I understand completely what you’re wanting to do but I have a small drum sander that weighs 170 pounds or so and I made a swing out stand for it.

I sent a link to where I got the idea The sander I have needed a much larger footprint and I used 2 rollers instead of one but it really helps to get the sander out of the way.

My cabinet is against a wall and the Supermax is 40” wide but the cabinet width is fine but depth is 24” so if I mounted it width wise and wanted to sand a long board it would hit the wall on exiting the sander. If I mounted it sideways the sander would stick out in front of the cabinet 16” so I thought if I mounted it on a rotating base (lazy susan) I could store it width wise and when needed rotate it depth wise and have plenty of room for the board to exit the sander.
