This weekend, I moved to a new house. Currently, my biggest machine is
a delta contractor's saw. In anticipation of the move, I built a
little mobile cart for the table saw. Took a look at the wheels on
most mobile bases and visited home depot. I'm likely to be in this
house for a while, but could easily move again in the future. Here's
what I learned:
2" diameter wheels are nowhere near big enough. I ended up being
high-center with my mobile cart at the top of the ramp. Also, they
caused approach angle problems when getting on the ramp. Which lead to
Bolt the mobile base to the tool somehow. The table saw came off the
base a total of three times. Once while loading, once in the truck
(must have bounced off), and once unloading.
I think I'll remove the metal legs and make a cabinet type thingie with
drawers a built-in router table, and dust collection... with 5"
