I have an old Walker Turner 2221 table saw which is currently bolted
to a very high dolly. It's okay for me (6' 3"), but is clearly a
danger to my girlfriend. I was wondering:
* Can anybody give me a ball park estimate on what it weighs (other
than really heavy)
* Does anybody have opinions about the various "Mobile Bases" I see
Don't know it by model number well enough to hazard guess, but look up
weight of current Powermatic of same size blade and add, say, 50lb to
account for the motor difference from then/now and some shields, etc.,
and I'll wager you'd be adequately safe for the purpose...
Can't help with the weight, but take a look at the Shop Fox bases at
These are adjustable in size, have a variety of weight capacities, are
stable and barely raise the machine 1/2" to 1" off of the floor. They
are reasonably priced too. I have one under my Grizzly 1023S which
has a weight of around 450 pounds; and our son uses one under his
contractor saw. Both of us are very pleased.
I recently picked up the "extra heavy duty" shopfox mobile base from Grizzly
for my PM3000. The base is 'rated' #800 and keeps it barely an inch off the
floor, you might want to take a look at it. They have some that are rated
#1300...wonder why I did not see that one....
