Should have purchased earlier
Just the thing to make moving miter saw and base easier. Size adjustable enough to fit most bases. Easy to put together. Wheels lock easily to make secure work area.

Does not fit the Craftsman Workstation
I bought this for the Craftsman Workstation, the number one stand sold by Craftsman, and found out it would not adjust to fit the length of that stand. Used it on one of my other saws and it works fine, but you would think there would be an add on sold to extend the base. Apparently not so, so I am looking for flat bar of the same size to make it custom.

Be Careful Listed Rectangular Dimensions Are Wrong

I order two of these mobile bases at a great on-sale price. The first one was assembled for use with my Craftsman metal workbench. This workbench has a width of 18" so I figured the rectangular set-up would be perfect (box says it can accommodate a rectangular set-up up to 18" wide). However, I found that not to be true. The mobile base corners and side supports all have rolled (inwards) edges (I guess for added strength). When I built the base set to the widest width it came up at 17 1/4". So I dissembled and took a trip to ********** and bought some lengths of punched steel strip (don't think angle iron would work with the base corners). Of course, the drilled holes in the mobile base and the those in the punched strip didn't match up. It ended up taking me 3 hours to set-up this base for use with my 18" wide Craftsman workbench. This product would've been 5-Stars if it was actually as large as the dimensions printed on the box/instructions/online. The second unit will be used for a custom made tool base and am hoping I don't need to retro-fit that one too. Having tools/benches on mobile bases/wheels does make life a lot easier.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

not as stable

this is a nice base but,... not as stable as the old style with the cam locks. the cam locks lowered the base down on rubber padded feet or lifted it up for mobility. this base will still move without a lot of pressure. It does let you move your stuff around the shop though, which is the idea.

Heavy Duty and easy to configure

I bought a pair of these mobile bases for my small guitar repair shop. I was really impressed with the price of the base, as well as how sturdy it is and how many different ways you can reconfigure it. My only complaint was that one of the casters had a broken lock on it, but it appeared the box had been damaged, not that the unit had left the factory that way. Currently awaiting a replacement. Would still recommend, highly.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Made a Difference

I have an older Craftsman table saw that unfortunately came with some pretty flimsy legs and weak casters. I bought this base hoping that it might solve the saw's mobility problem. I'm happy to say that it did, and rather nicely. Not only can I wheel my old reliable saw around easily now, it's firmed up the feel and those flimsy legs. Was a little tricky to fit to my saw, but a little patience and the right tools and it went together pretty quickly.

Not Long Enough to fit Chop Saw Stand Like in Picture

Well made and sturdy. Nice paint job. However, it's dimensions are too small to fit my Sears tool stand that holds my chop saw. Disappointed they didn't take this into consideration. I will need to find some angle iron and hardware to add about 12 inches in length. They should have thought about this or provided extensions. I love Craftsman tools, but they seem to not think things through sometimes.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great on all types of power tools.

I purchased this mobile base after looking at several others. Some cost more and some less, but this one did exactly what I wanted and was easy to assemble. The extra bonus feature was it's adjustment capability. I originally thought I would use it only for my Delta Shopmaster table saw, but was also able to use it for the bench top planer. This is a very useable and affordable mobile base and I would recommend it for anyone who has limited space and is in need of mobility in their garage workshop, or a basement workshop.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worked for my Craftsman 14" bandsaw

I bought this to use on my Craftsman 14" bandsaw. It works well with it. I can roll it around my shop now and the wheel locks hold it steady in place. The finish on this base is better than the finish on the Craftsman work stand I purchased earlier and it seems to be made of a little heavier gauge metal. You will need metric wrenches to put it together although the locking front casters are probably SAE. My metric socket was a bit loose on it but worked. To fit the bandsaw I built it 29" x 23" and it fit perfectly. All hardware was there and since it was on sale and I used some Craftsman Club points, I got it for about $36. It is worth that much for sure.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Awesome Tool, Could make the footprint a bit larger!

If you are working in a small area as I do, the CM Mobile Base is a must. I have (4) now and plan on buying two more so that all my machines are mobile. Quick and easy to move around, a must for every shop!

Works OK for my band saw but I would not use it on anything too heavy. Even after releasing the wheels, it was still too easy to move. Price was good compared to some of the competition, but this might be for what I see as limited use.
