I recently moved, and the moving company pretty effectively destroyed the “table” I had my table saw on. My saw is a 1950’s Craftsman saw simlar to this: http://vintagemachinery.org/photoindex/images/9987-A.jpg The saw is fine (thank goodness because I have completely refurbished it), but the table it’s on is mangled. I need to submit a claim to the moving company, and include a “like item for replacement”. Any suggestions for a purchase-able mobile stand for a saw like this?

Cheers!

I didn’t know they sold the base separately….That is a nice looking stand.

Would a Delta Contracting Saw bottom stand do the trick?

I found this on ebay, have to check for compatibility though.

Go to local welding shop and get a quote to build you one like the one they tore up.

pictures of your “mangled saw base” would help.

Interesting problem, but my first inclination would be to do a temporary set up some how, and then build a wood base for it. A wood base would give you storage, and even an outfeed if you wanted to get fancy.

I run a hot rodded Delta 10” Contractors saw, vintage 1990, and the stand came with it, as I recall. I attached some Craftsman retractable wheels to the legs, and it works fine.

I am about to post an outfeed/sawdust control/storage project for the saw. If I had to do it over, I would have scrapped the metal stand and made it all wood…

Why not make one out of wood?

Making a wood one is definitely on my to-do list, but “my” to-do list typically starts where my honey-do list ends. Granted, I enjoy the projects I have on my list, but I need to finish some things for my house before I have time to build a nice wood cart. So, I’m looking for a replacement that can keep me moving in a more stable manner than my temporary non-movable setup.

he hasn’t said anything about a metal stand.. (the picture is from the internet and NOT his saw).

he’s looking for something that he can point to and show the insurance company so he can be compensated for the time/effort/etc that he had in the previous table for the saw (I got the impression that it was wood)..

My old stand was a mix of some metal/wood – added on over the years as I needed things changed. It’s firewood/recycle material now though.

The moving company (I believe) compensates for replacement with “like” item. I obviously won’t be able to be “compensated” for the time and effort I had into the old one, so I want to find one that is good and robust to point to. At that point I’ll have to make a decision on going ahead and buying a commercial stand – like the SawStop one – and using it immediately (pros: it’s up and working in less than an hour, cons: I’ll eventually could replace it with a nicer custom-made one), or putting the money towards lumber/materials for a custom-built one (pros: it’ll be exactly what I need/want for my space, cons: I have to continue using a make-shift, stationary setup for now).

Would a Delta Contractors saw base work size wise? Model # 34 -441. If you need size let me know I will go measure it.

Tell the moving company you need this as a replacement:

Or this:

Then use the money as you see fit.

In the link there are some stands sold on Amazon
If I was you I’d find a nice one that does what you need it to. Submit it as a fair replacement and tell them if they’d prefer they could issue u a check and you would build one verses them buying one
Main thing is dont b one of those crazy ppl that demand the company buy them a new saw stop table saw because they ruined a stand. If you keep it reasonable they’ll likely work with u. Also you should probably file a claim asap because I’m sure it’ll take several weeks or more for them to process it and evaluate it so the sooner ur get something to them the sooner you’ll have something to work off of.
If they dispute it you might do as already mentioned and find a shop to price building a exact new one of what’s was ruined. I’m sure that price would start as $500 verse a few hundred for the good mass produced version you submit
