Table Saw On Wheels
Steve Devaney, Merkel, Texas: "I cut the caster wheels and handle off an old hydraulic floor jack that didn't work any more and use them to move my table saw around my shop. Two wheels and their adjoining support brackets are permanently bolted to a square wooden base that's bolted to the bottom part of the table saw's legs. A small steel ring is bolted to the front side of the base.
  "The bottom part of the jack handle has a metal bracket with two small caster wheels and a hook on front. By inserting the hook into the ring and prying up on the handle, I can raise the front part of the base off the floor and then pull or push the table saw wherever I need it. It really works good. Another advantage is that the base catches a lot of the sawdust that falls from the table, which makes cleanup easier."
