asked woodworker Dave Clarke, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2018, to take a look at an article Woodcraft
Magazine published in Issue 44 by Pete Stephano – “The Wheelchair
Woodworker Shop” – to see if he felt that the recommendations were still
relevant and if he had any other advice for folks wanting to set up a workshop
with modifications. Read more here...
So far, so good.
Purchased today to mobilize a good old cast iron Delta 14” bandsaw (circa 1974, ~200lbs, 17 1/2x16” base). Works well for now, but I’m not too confident in the plastic cam levers. The base is rated at 500lbs, but I doubt the levers will be able to withstand frequent movement for a machine that heavy for very long. We’ll see. A couple of tips that I figured out when placing the saw on the stand solo, and regarding mobility that may or may not be helpful depending on your situation: 1. Place a blanket or pillows on the ground/floor and lie your tool down on the arm/legs. 2. Dry fit the base, lie it back on the ground with the front casters disengaged/feet engaged positioned to its final orientation. Chock the stationary ( rear) casters so the base doesn’t move when tipping the tool up onto the base. Done. 3. When engaging swivel casters, the tool becomes unstable as one side is much higher than the other. Be sure to keep a firm hold of the tool until both casters are engaged. This is particularly important with tall, back-heavy tools such as a bandsaw. Overall, I’m pleased with this purchase and would recommend it for now. I will update this review if things change. Kind regards, and stay safe.
