Re: Build mobil base for drill press.



I'll post a picture of the cabinet I made for my dp on a.b.p.w.
It's made from left-overs.     Lyptus top and corner post.     Sides are 3/4 maple ply     Back 1/2 maple ply     Maple face frame     Oak draw fronts     Inside draw supports are mystery wood.     Draws are pine, poplar, fir?, with 3/8 ply bottoms.
The casters were salvaged from something. I cant remember what, but they aren't big enough. It's solid but doesn't move easy.

If it were me, I'd build a cabinet to put the desktop tool on and then buy a mobile base such as this: http://www.rockler.com/ecom7/product_details.cfm?offerings_id 450
If you have more money to spend, the 3 wheel delta mobile bases are a lot nicer (around 80-100 each), but they are not adjustable. No big deal, just build your cabinent to fit.
IMO, the HTC base wouldn't cost that much more than good casters and it's a lot easier to keep it stationary when you need it to be.
