BEST IDEA SINCE SLICED BREAD!
I purchased one of these several years ago just to try it. These things are great. Since that first purchase, I have added at least 8 additional ones. Every piece of heavy equipment in my garage/shop is on one of these. It makes my shop 40% bigger because I can move equipment around. I even purchased two additional mobile bases for use with some plastic storage boxes I use for heavy items. These things are great.

PORTAMATE Mobile Base
Sturdy, easily adjustable and well worth the price. The design of the adjustable pieces could be improved by having them fit one into the other instead of all the same size, and the instructions did not suggest ways of assembly to compensate for this. I did put one of the 4 sides together and then figured it out, so not too bad.

Deve D on Nov 25, 2018
I already have 2 of these. They are great for scroll saws, stationary belt sanders, etc that are not big and heavy machines. Work smoothly and very adjustable. Now #3 is on the way.
Richard M on Nov 25, 2018

My new Rikon bandsaw is around 200lb. This base is rated up to 400lb. Should work just fine for my small shop !
James A on Nov 25, 2018
Looks like a good product I need mobility for some of my tools.
Ronald H on Nov 25, 2018
I am reconfiguring my workshop and mobility is the key to best layout and utility. This caster system is the best I have seen for heavy tools that need stability when in use.

Will this fit the Rikon 10-324 14” bandsaw?
Rodney E on Dec 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Worked on mine - very stable and easy to use.
Hope this helps.
When stationary how much is a tool raised above the floor?
Paul S on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you take the leveling feet off of the tool base the tool won't be raised at all.
If you leave the feet as they are the tool will be about 1/2" higher.
my bandsaw base is 33"x 33". Do you sale a portable base that will work?
Steve B on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have used several of these stands on floor model equipment from drill presses, planers, to 10'" table saws they are adjustable to various base sizes. They are excellent for tools that require moving in order to access to use.
the description states 4 wheels,the list of whats included says 2 wheels.. does this actually come with 4 wheels?
amber b on Jul 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. 2 wheels are fixed to the frame on the rear corners. The other two wheels are attached to the assemblies that raise the frame when the levers are engaged to make the unit mobile. Hope this helps.
Will this base fit a 28 inch x 36 inch base table saw? That is not clear from the technical description.
Constance C on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If we are talking about the same product, I don't think you will be able to adjust the rails out to accommodate the 36" distance. I have 6 of the in my small shop (so I can move things around) and the one under my big table-top bandsaw is maxed out at about 33". There may be another model for larger tool stands, but I'm not sure.
can it adjust 22X 191/2 ?
Donald S on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes
Can this be expanded to a 24 x 60 rectangle?
Larry on Nov 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think you would have to add your own metal side bars to do that. should be easy enough to find something at a big box or hardware store for this.
our online prices available in stores?
Jon M on Jun 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the prices should be the same.
On the PM1000 do you sell the casters by themselves?
Tim A on Dec 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: it comes withe the set.. rocker has a dozen or so different kinds of wheels
I'm buying it for use with a cheap table saw. I think it weighs around 40 lbs. Is there a minimum tool weight that this base needs for the casters to lock in the mobile position?
