Delta Table Saw Mobile Base

By Todd Fratzel on Power Tools, Product Reviews

I purchased a Delta Table Saw Mobile Base several years ago and I can’t imagine owning a table saw without it. There are numerous table saw mobile bases available on the market. Most of them are universal designs that allow you to use them with most table saw manufacturers.

I own a Delta Contractor Table Saw so I decided to purchase a Delta Table Saw Mobile Base to go with it. The mobile base allows you to sit the table saw directly onto the frame or mount a platform to support the table saw. I chose to build a wooden frame to support the saw so that it could also support my dust collection bag and keep sawdust from falling down around the wheels.

This particular Delta table saw mobile base has two roller style wheels in the front and a larger third wheel attached to a pivot bar on the back. The pivot bar allows you to lift up the saw so you can push it around. When you let the pivot bar down the back of the frame sits on rubber stands which keep the saw from moving. This frame is very steady and when the pivot wheel isn’t lifted up for movement the mobile base is very sturdy and stable.

I think I spent about $100 for this base and it’s been worth every dollar! If you own a table saw and you don’t own a mobile base for it I’d recommend you guy out and buy one. This mobile base allows me to easily move the saw out into the middle of the room for cutting large pieces. After you’re done working you can just push it back into a corner. This is certainly a must have table saw accessory.
