Seabiscuit, I got all of that from the sheet but it doesn’t give me the height of just the base it self, actually that’s all I really needed was just the base height. Could still use some help with that if anyone knows.

If I were to just throw a number out there I’d guess height would be around 24” just don’t want to take the chance of making it to high or to low.

The height is exactly 24”, not counting the adjustable footpads. In other words, the sheet metal measures 24” from top to bottom.

I just happen to be right by my GO555P, so this is an actual measurement.

Just a suggestion, offered while the lumber is airborne, to consider including a receptacle underneath where you can toss the little falldowns. Here is an image of my solution, but it’s not so good as one you could concoct as you design your base.

The problem with mine is that lots of pieces end up on the floor, under the saw, and that’s annoying somewhat.

Kindly,

Lee

Anyone know the weight breakdowns? I am buying one as well and was wondering what the heaviest part is (I’m carrying it up stairs and plan on unboxing and carrying in parts).

Thanks and sorry for jacking your thread…

Hi Lee

Thanks for that suggestion, not sure just yet what I’m going to use the extra storage for, I’m planing on building a mobile base as well using these plans, only instead of a tray It’ll be a cabinet same concept.
