I want to build a mobile base for 2 Craftsman table saws (and perhaps a new router table). I know it will need to be able to handle a lot of weight so I am wondering just how heavy duty I should build. Also how much weight the casters will need to carry. I know I could just overcompensate for weight but I would prefer to know exactly how heavy this machine really is. Not any of the original literature has a weight rating and surfing the internet has not been fruitful. I am hoping someone out there has a clue about this. Please help! (and thanks in advance for any relpy)

About 250ish pounds depending on whether or not you have perforated or solid extension wings. Do you own one? Go and put a scale under it.

Don’t forget to add extra weight of the wood for your projects too. A sheet of 4×8 3/4 ply adds 40-50 lbs. I’d want at least 100 lb rated caster in each corner.

I just looked on Amazon and you can get a
set of 4 casters that will handle 970lbs collectively
for $22. I bought some cheap 2” casters recently
for little rolling toolboxes but I’d recommend at
least 3” for heavy stuff like machines. You can get
2” casters that will take the weight, but they
can be hard to roll anyway when weighted down.
I have a 1000lb machine on 4” casters and its
still hard to move. The larger wheels don’t get
stuck in floor depressions as easily and probably
roll over debris better.

Point being a little overkill on the caster capacity
is not very costly.

Hi folks, thanks for all the thoughts and info.

I do have cast wings and plan to use 2 of them. I think 250 is a pretty fair estimate too. Thanks for the info!

Yes I think what I have in mind for design will add about 250-200 lbs. in materials.

I agree, thanks. Very interesting to hear 1000lbs on 4’’ casters still hard to move. I estimate my project will total at about 800lbs. I have both 4” and 5” on hand. I’ll just go with the 5” locking casters. Thanks Loren!
