  1. Great product Review by Jim

    I have several really heavy tools in my shop. Storage space is critical as well as being able to these machines to where I can work on long pieces of wood. The 2 PM-1100 mobile bases allow me to easily move these machines to anywhere in my shop. Even my wife and small granddaughter are able to move these heavy tools with these Portamate mobile bases. They are a great product. (Posted on 8/28/17)

  2. Just what I was looking for Review by Rockler Customer

    I have a small area for my addiction, I mean hobby, and I need to have all my equipment on casters. I got a great deal on an older floor stand drill press. It is quite heavy and just a little top heavy. I started searching forums and videos for a DIY mobile base for my drill press. Many of the projects looked viable, but when I saw this kit I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. I was not sure if this would be strong enough, because this drill press feels like it is made of solid iron. I am happy to say this mobile base kit has surpassed my expectations and quite easily carries the weigh of the press and moves around the shop very smoothly. I did mount the front casters in the sideways position to give it a wider footprint and that is working very well.

    One note: The instructions list two lengths bolts for this kit. Mine came with 40 mm bolts. This worked well for my application. I laminated a piece of 3/4 inch ply to a 1/4 inch ply and still had plenty of bolt to thread the nut but was still clear of the floor. If you plan to use anything thinner than a 1inch piece of plywood, ask for the shorter bolts or cut them to length. Otherwise the bolts will drag on the floor once the base is assembled.
