  • Mobile Base for Ridgid R4511

    I have this saw, and the mobile lift isn't working. I also have a set of these casters fromWoodcraft:http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/202...ed-4-Pack.aspx

    I was thinking about laminating two 3/4" pieces ofplywood and attaching these casters right under where the legs are. And then setting the saw on the plywood andconnecting the saw feet to the plywood with lag bolts.

    Would this work? Themain reason I am going this route is that I have the plywood and casters.

    Thanks,
    Chip

    No reason why that wouldn't work with the possible exception that it would be a huge pain every time you wanted to move the saw. On the other hand, if you don't move the saw around much, the leveling feature would be a plus.

      Sounds like your saw will be about 4" higher after the casters and wood pieces are installed.

      Can you live with that? If you are over 6 feet tall maybe, otherwise the table may be too high
      to perform some operations safely and/or comfortably.

        You need to remember that you'll raise the height of your saw another 4 1/2 inches if that's not a problem then go for it.

          I’d find out what the problem is. i have both of my TSs on herc-u-lifts and find them to be exemplary full mobility bases.
          there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.
