Good solid base
Fort Collins, CO
HTC HD Adjustable Mobile Base HTC-3000
Good solid base that makes tools easy to move. Would be a little better if all wheels swiveled but works very well.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Broke the first time I used it
Mounted it on my one way lathe which weighs about 450 pounds. The plastic locking cleats snapped when I tried to set it. with the wheels deployed I can just belly move it.
It might work alright much on lighter piece of equipment. The description says it is rated for 700 pounds no way!!!
But the plastic cleats are not strong enough to raise a heavy piece
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Works well but takes time for custom fit
The HTC 3000 has more plastic components than an older HTC 2000 that I am still using on my table saw. Hope the plastic components are durable, otherwise, works well.
Good Product - Poor Instructions
I'm using this product as the base for my jointer. You may as well through out the instructions for assembly as they are fairly useless. Fortunately, assembly is intuitive if you do a good job of laying our all of the parts.
Great item. Exactly what I wanted.
OT the handy man
Ponca City, OK
Support my planer fantastically. Can now move it around and out of the way in the shop.
The bushings for the rear wheels didn't fit. Called HTC and they are sending me new wheels and bushings.
-Not too sturdy = will probably return
I just bought a new Jet 14 inch bandsaw and this stand at the local Woodcrafyt store. The stand is weak and flexes a little during use. Very disappointed.
Better Than Before . . . But . . .
This HTC Adjustable Base is better than the last one I purchased (had to add wood runners, so that tells you how long ago), but the quality is going downhill with the use of more and more plastic. My best suggestion is to find a fixed base that is close in size to what you need and use it. Durability remains to be see, although this was used for a scroll saw so I do not anticipate any problems. Okay overall, but the "bean-counters" are really doing a number on quality!
Needed a mobile but solid base for a portable planar in a garage workshop; this did the trick. Moving the planar in and out is a breeze now, and it stays put when locked in place. Perhaps over kill, but I got it at a nearly half price sale so I went with this unit. Otherwise, I would have gone with the next model down. Only concern I have is with eventual corrosion of the bolt from the casters so I treated them. Would purchase again.
Nice but flawed
Paul in Rhode Island
The assembly and over-all strength of the unit is very good. Unfortunately the springs on the front wheels broke almost immediately which meant that the feet do not fully retract when in wheels mode so that they drag along the floor causing problems. If the spring mechanism were reinforced I would rate this as excellent, but this is a serious shortcoming as it is a tip hazard if the dragging feet catch something on the shop floor as the item is moved around.
