    Comments about Port-A-Mate Adjustable Mobile Base PM-1000 :

    This mobile base is actually a pretty good item. The instructions, however, leave a whole lot to be desired. The instructions which come with this item are the worst I have ever seen. EVER. I started out by following the instructions. After 30 minutes I realized I would be better off by figuring it out with common sense and special perception. Not only are the instructions useless the part descriptions are inaccurate and the tools required list is inaccurate as well. Once I figured out which parts go where and which tools I need I had it assembled in no time. Some of the reviewers have stated this mobile base does not steer very well. I had the same issue until I loosened the steering caster nuts just a bit. All of a sudden the steering was effortless! I am using this mobile base for my drill press. After I set the drill press into the base the drill press started wobbling. I simply used a wedge in one corner and he wobbling went away. I would have given this item 4 stars had it not been for the wobbling.

    Comments about Port-A-Mate Adjustable Mobile Base PM-1000 :

    This base assembled easily and was quite adaptable to my 300+ pound band saw. However, the aluminum levers bend easily. While the base itself may have a 400 pound capacity as listed, that is more capacity than the levers can lift, which takes much of the "mobile" out of this mobile base. I'd only suggest using this on tools substantially less than 300 pounds.

    Comments about Port-A-Mate Adjustable Mobile Base PM-1000 :

    Goes together well and allows me to move my table saw with relative ease. Doesn't "steer" all that easily, but gets the job done. I have a DeWalt Job Site saw, and the foot dimensions were, I think, 37 x 24 (sum = 61) Although the range of sizes is given as 34x34 (sum 68) to 18 x 50 (sum 68), the saw didn't fit. (You get two long and four short rails, and not all combinations are possible.) (My memory is a little foggy on the specifics, but you get the idea) I called Woodcraft returns, and they promptly send me two more rails without charge. I appreciated that. With that, the problem was solved.

    My Delta Uni-saw is a little to heavy for this product. The levers are made of aluminum and bend easily when raising the saw to move. Other than that it is a well made product.

    Bought this mobile base for my 14" bandsaw as I have a small garage workshop. The base was easy to assemble and has made moving my bandsaw extremely easy. I will be buying a couple more for my scroll saw and table saw.

    Comments about Port-A-Mate Adjustable Mobile Base PM-1000 :

    It works OK, I am using for a drill press. The base of your machine or added platform in my case is only supported in the corners which is OK. Problem is that because of slop in the rails the corner support areas will not be coplaner. The corner areas provide mounting holes for an added base. I built up a 1.5 inch plywood base and put lag bolts from the underneath to mount it. A potential problem is that the mobile base sits so low that the lag bolt heads are only about 1/4" off the floor. Finally, the cantilever wheels used to make the base move feel flimsy and don't sit absolutely perpendicular to the floor when extended which means they fight a little - won't rotate direction easily. One last issue is that the two wheels used to raise the base are lowered separately. I need both hands to lower one wheel so the base tips while I do the first wheel. The base works fine for me, I move my drill rarely and given how heavy it is this product is better than my shop made base. I would not use it on something I move more than once a week.

    I bought this for my table saw, so I could more easily move it around the garage so my wife park her car in there also. The locking casters work well to keep it in one place, when unlocked, it's easy to move around
