Mobile bandsaw base

The simplest of my mobile tool bases was my bandsaw base.

Because a bandsaw is a relatively slow cutting machine that doesn't often get loaded with very heavy work pieces, I made my bandsaw base so that the bandsaw is permanently elevated on casters.

To not cut down on stability though, the casters had to be mounted outside the cabinet. I mounted them off to either side, so that they would not get in the way of my feet when standing in front of the bandsaw.

Really, this base took no time at all to build.

The bandsaw is just resting on the base by gravity. For extra stability, I could have attached it with screws, but I didn't feel that this was necessary.

I don't use this bandsaw very much anymore since I built a better one, with it's own mobile stand
