Good Value!!!Posted April 7, 2014
As always, I read the reviews before deciding on a purchase, and the overwhelming majority of the reviews for this base were 5 stars, and that is exactly what this base deserves! This base went together easily, and my only deviance from the instructions was to use a 3/8" drill bit for the front roller bracket and a 5/16 for all of the other holes. It does help to have a drill press to ensure the holes you drill are straight. Other than that, I just referred to the photo of the assembled base, doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the design from there.
I built this base for my new Rikon 10-351 bandsaw, which weighs in significantly more than does my (and Kelsey's) Jet drill press and Jet 14" bandsaw - at 315 pounds. The base is rock solid, and I haven't experienced any issues moving my Rikon bandsaw around. The front wheel swivels exactly like it should. Again, I'm not picking on Kelsey, but I can't help but think he didn't not assemble his base correctly....
Bottom line, buy this base with confidence!!! I will purchase again if I'm in need of another tool mobile base!!!
