With a small shop like mine, all tools need to be on wheels. The table saw is the largest tool in my shop and needs to be able to easily move around. The previous wheels on the saw weren’t allowing me to easily move the table saw out, then tuck it back when i was done.
So i built a base that had 4 lockable caster wheels. This allowed me to move the saw from any angle.
Things to know are that the way i mounted the wheels did cause the height of the saw to increase about 3″.

    You sir – have a workshop like most of us. I see those gorgeous, perfect workshops that are magazine worthy, but I’ll never have one of those. Like you I must move my tools around constantly to perform various operations as I build things. I spend more time dragging out and putting away (…or out of the way) larger power tools than I do machining wood. I like this video because it shows some creativity to allow for a tiny cramped workshop, yet make it somewhat functional and efficient. Sighhhhhhh. Hey – I still have fun making or fixing things in my garage! Hats off to you!

    I did something like this but it put the surface of the table saw too high for comfort. Looking to make wheels that flip up and down.

    Should have maybe thought of cutting the table legs 3 inches shorter, then build the caster set up to fit! It wouldnt be any higher than normal that way.

    How do you keep the saw table from sliding off the base? I am planning to build one of these for my drill press and stand and have not come up with a way to keep it on the base without building a lip around the edge. Thanks! Great instructional video!

    The one thing I wanted to see you didn’t film – how the hell do you get the saw up on the base? I think I’d need something like an engine hoist to do that 🙂

    thanks~ just apent 2 hrs yesterday adding wheels to the metal platform at my base to find I can’t get the wheels to turn 360 degrees ~ I’ll try your method ~
    You mentioned recessing the wheels to keep it at 38" high ~ How do you do that??
    Thanks Ross g

    Did you secure the kegs to the platform or just sitting with weight?

    Thank you for the video. I am thinking something similar but half lap 2x4s, with a 1/4" plywood top. To your point though, will check the height of the base& casters first to make sure table saw surface is not too high.
