Does anyone have any experience with mobile bases for the Rkon 18” bandsaw? Any good ones? Any to avoid? Thanks for the input.

I have the 14” 10-325, so I can’t really help. But here’s a bump up the pulse page. “Bout all I can do. Good luck!

I was trying to avoid this post ‘cuz I wuz turnin’ Green with jealousy! Just like Randy, I have the 10-325. I love it but bigger-is-better is tuggin’ at me!

i have the predecessor 10-340. it’s on an htc 1000, and it’s awful. the 1000 i have is a holdover from a jet 18” bandsaw i was recently (and thankfully) was relieved of by a pretentious wanna be woodworker tool snob. when i’m ready top change bases, i’m going with one of these:

i’ve even seen applications of these bases where the wheeled corners are bolted directly to the metal base of the saw, saving about as much room as can be saved.
