What are your thoughts on mobile bases? I’m debating whether to build one or buy one (e.g. shop fox from Grizzly) for the go513x bandsaw. I made a stand and mobile base for my belt sander, but I’m not sure if the ‘bigger’ tool deserves a more ‘tried and true’ store bought mobile base. I don’t think I can master the off loading of the swivel wheels for more tool stability as easily as a store bought one.
Things I’m considering:
1. Cost – to buy it…. 60-70 dollars, to make it….. 20 – 30 dollars (guesstimate)
2. Tool Stability when in use vs. ease of mobility in transition.
Thanks for your ideas and suggestions!
