I see several posts about shop-built bases. These are fine. However, I
wanted to point out one big plus for the delta style base. The feature
that lets you set or release the front feet by one simple lever is rock
solid and hard to beat. I have not found a similar shop built feature
that did not require welding or special hardware to match. I bought
the equivalent mobiles bases at a Rockler store on sale for $39.95 each
- hard to beat.
