I just bought the HCT2000 Mobile Tool Base from Amazon for a recently
purchased drill press. It cost $49 and since I was willing to wait a
few extra days, shipping was free. The tool base assembles easily and
it has a clever mechanism for raising it up on 4 wheels to roll the
tool around. I am quite happy with this product and wanted to share my

I have an HTC mobile base for my table saw and I'm really happy with
it. Easy to move when you want it to move and absolutely rock solid
when you want it not to move. Much better than the Delta mobile base
I have for my bandsaw, I wish I'd gotten an HTC base for that as well.

I bought one last month for the planer I got for Christmas. It took me a
while to put it together, but I really like it. I'm going to invest in
another one the next time I get paid for my scroll saw. I got mine at Post
Tools. Their original price was $59, but I told them I could get it for $49
on Amazon Tool Crib......they matched the price.
Mine is underwhelming.
I have an HTC base under a General cabinet saw that will rock side to
side, as you stand at the front of the saw, unless I put wedges
between the base and floor.
The flex is coming from the mobile base's long tube that goes under
the rip table. The saw body itself sits on two wheels, with a third
out under the rip table's feet. The rocking is noticeable and quite
annoying. If I moved the saw more often, I'd rate this base as
The main reason for the mobile base, in my case, is to make the saw
higher for me, mobility is secondary. The wedges are less of a pain
than lifting the saw out of the base and returning the HTC base to the
place of purchase.
Where did you get it? I can't find mobile bases on General's site,
and my local dealer carries HTC.
I was going to add some welded support between the far right end and
the main base to stop the rocking when I don't have the wedges in
