Just what I needed
This is a solid base for my table saw. My garage doubles as my workshop. This makes mobility so much easier.
The instructions for assembly are not that good, but figuring it out was not difficult.

HTC3000 Universal Mobile Base is outstanding
This product was one of the best investments I've ever made. It has made moving my table saw so easy. I can now roll it against a wall when I'm not using it. When I need it again, I just pull it out and lock the wheels and I'm ready to cut.

Great low profile mobile base!
This stand is awesome! It has a low profile so it fits my table-saw and stand without raising it up too much. The wheels make it easy to move around. The wheel locks keep it in place! Awesome! Thank You!

HTC 3000 Universal Mobile Base
This mobile base is good quality and functions well.
I am pleased with its mobility options.
I have a small cabinet shop and given the ability to move various types of equipment (with this mobile bade) in order to use them efficiently is key for me.

It may be ok - don't know.
I ordered this base because of the adjustable size. It does need to be assembled completely. The parts seem strong and I have no doubt it will do the job. If you follow the instructions step by step it will assemble ok. The pictures could be a little larger and clearer however. I was looking forward to using it however I had to give it a 3 for two main reasons. One of the metal foot brackets was not tapped so I couldn't assemble it. Additionally there were 4 bolts and nuts missing that was also needed to attach the two foot pads that raise the frame. I guess this is what we get from China made products. I packed it back up and returned it. I wish it would have worked as it looked like it would be strong and do the job.

Mediocre stand
As others have mentioned horrible instructions. Also butter soft nuts and bolts. Probably would not buy again for the price.

Happy I bought them, but they flex a little and cause shop tools to wiggle
I bought 2 if these. One is under a 200lb contractor style table saw. The other is under a 6 inch jointer. Good heavy steel frame, nicely painted. The brakes for the non swiveling wheels do not work very well and both the jointer and the table saw wiggle around now with both brakes locked and the front feet cammed down with wheels lifted up. A mobile base is no substitute for a rigid slab of concrete. They do roll very well and the freedom to move tools in my shop is very nice.

Appears to be the most rugged, lowest priced one I found on the site. I want strength and durability in products but cannot afford to buy the most expensive models of most anything I purchase.
Gary T on Apr 16, 2016
I have another HTC mobile base, but it does not have locking wheels. I liked this one better because of the wheel locks and floor locks design.

Again, quality looks good, and footprint adjustment should work well for our band saw base. Low center of gravity is important for the tall, narrow band saw.
Richard K on Sep 28, 2015
The quality is excellent, and they were the size required.
Michael S on Sep 7, 2015
Two previous have given satisfaction with machines weighing as much as 480 pounds.

I have a cabinet saw that weighs about 600 lbs., it has an extension table with 2 legs, do they make something that supports the legs too?
I've seen one on a grizzly saw.
riverbum on Jan 10, 2016
I'm confused about the size adjustment. I need a base 24" x 36" Will this one work? Thank you.
Curt C on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine is set for 22" x 28" for my band saw. I took measurements of how far can the side bars be extended to. 36" is the max, but barely. The wheel base has a 90 degree curved edge on top in which the side bars fit between this edge & the bottom of the wheel base. Each wheel base has 2 bolts that hold each end of the side bars. If extended to 36", the ends of the side bars will only rest within 1" on the top curved edge that the 2 bolts must be able to support the weight because I'm not sure if it will be strong enough with only supported by only 1" top edge & 2 bolts. If you call Rockler, they may be able to answer if it will be strong enough or maybe they offer longer side bars for the 2 sides. I like mine & it's a good product for my size.
Is there a chart showing what the options are for rectangle size from this base - I'm hoping for 30" x 48" from this base?
John M on Jan 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: John,

Mobile base expands from 14" to 54"; Maximum rectangle 22" x 54"

Do the fixed wheels raise the base or only lock?
Charles E on Nov 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The fixed wheels only lock. They don't raise the base. I'm using them on a very heavy Grizzly table saw and have found them easy to maneuver.
what mobile base would be appropriate for the Delta 18 inch floor drill press?
Herb N on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought mine for a Powermatic table saw. Works fine for that. I did have a problem with one of the corner braces which was welded in a fashion that made it impossible to insert the wheel backing bracket. Called Rocklear Customer Service, explained the problem and received new corner bracket in a few days.
Do wheels retract? Will work for a table saw.
Ron H on Aug 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The wheels don't retract. One pair lock and the other pair can effectively be locked using the leveling feature. It will work for a table saw provided the weight of the saw is less than the listed weight of 700 pounds and the dimension of the base of your saw will fit within the maximum size listed for this mobile base.
I have a Delta Table Saw with an open base-28"x25" deep, will this base work?
Richard Z on Jan 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sir, yes I believe this will work for you. I have a very heavy Jet cabinet saw setting on this mobile base and it supports it well, and allows me to move a 700 pound saw around easily when i need. It was easily set up with the most difficulut task being getting the saw set on the base. Once that was done, it was easy to finish assembly. All in all i am pleased with this product.
Will this base work with the Powermatic 54a jointer?
