After a harrowing ordeal moving my drill press from one side of the garage to the other, I finally bit the bullet and bought this mobile tool base made by HTC (model HTC-2000). It’s powder-coated steel with two fixed casters in back and two swiveling ones in front—perfect for moving a tippy drill press or other heavy woodworking machines. The size is customizable to fit most home workshop machines.
Assembly was easy—just a few bolts and 10 minutes of my time. My only complaint is that the small wheels in back get caught in some of the cracks in my garage floor. HTC machine bases are available for about $60 at woodworking stores like Rockler and Woodcraft and from online retailers.
