  • Roller stand for Planer

    I posted this in "General Woodworking" first but see that it needs to be here. I have a Rigid Table Saw and a Planer. The table saw has a "Hurcules" lift base so that it can be rolled around easily, but the planer doesn't. Does anyone know if Rigid make a rolling base for the planer and where I might get one, I live in S.E. Oklahoma.

    tombstone, youcan buy and adjustable herculift caster system at HD its just like the one on your table saw except it adjusts.
    You can\'t make footprints in the sands of time by sitting on your butt, and who wants to make butt prints in the sands of time.

        Somebody on this forum made a great mobile
        stand for the jointer. It may have been Woody, I am not sure. Search for it. It looked better than anyting I think you can buy.

            I made a mobile base for my planer as well. (sorry no photo's yet).

            Basically a piece of plywood 3/4" thick with a 3/4" x 1" high band around it to hold the legs in place. And 4, 1-1/2" swivel casters. Since the planer is self feeding, it requires no wheel lock to keep it moving during use.

            Total cost was some pieces from the scrap pile and $5 for the casters. Ridgid Gray paint was on hand from a previous project.

              I bought the $19.99 special from Harbor Freight.

              Harbor Freight Mobile Base

              If you use the link on the left side to order from printed catalog and use the part number of 41915 2 VGA it is on sale for $25.99 right now.

              I think OKC has a store that will match the price if you print it out.

                Did you miss my post that the Herc-U-Lift-Plus has measurements for the planer too? "It's in the manual"
