Just wondering if everyone likes the mobile bases from woodcraft. They have one on sale for 59.99 and I am looking to pick one up for my jointer. Thanks

If you are talking about the HTC-2000, have a few of them. Work great and are strong. For $60 they are a good value.

The wood river from woodcraft is a great mobile base. I have an HTC and I’ll never own another one. They flex too much and aren’t terribly well made.

I build my own mobile bases using the swiveling double locking plate casters from Woodcraft. I think they are the best available.

I must say I’m surprised by this comment. The ones I have are made well and don’t flex. Did you get the bottom of the line one, the HTC-1000?

Thanks for the input. I just picked up a used jointer and am using this as an excuse to rearrange my entire shop. Hopefully making a few tools more mobile will help in my efficiency.
Thanks again
