HTC - Dedicated Mobile-Base HRBS-14HTC’s dedicated mobile base for Delta Bandsaws is available for other saws under slightly different model numbers.
Mobile bases offer the convenience of being able to relocate machinery easily, allowing woodworkers to use shop space efficiently. The foremost requirement for a mobile base is that it be strong and stable. It must not buckle under the weight of a machine, and it must not wobble while the machine is in use. It is an added benefit if it transports a machine with ease and if its handles and foot levers are easy to see and to use.
I tested seven mobile machine bases, both dedicated and universal, to move a couple of bandsaws around the shop. They ranged in price from $50 to $100 and offered a good cross section of what is available. The HTC dedicated base has a three-wheel “nose-cone” design that aids in stability. Engineered to a high standard, this is a top performer, even on an uneven floor.
