This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Any serious workshop will have a sizable collection of heavy, expensive power tools. That's all well and good — until it's time to move them. These mobile bases attach to the bottoms of your most substantial equipment, allowing you to roll them with ease, thanks to their casters. While all the options on this list are relatively stable, take care to make sure nothing tips over when moving it. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best mobile power tool basis on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 28, 2019:

A few of these models, including the HTC Adjustable HTC2000, come with their own rails, saving you from having to make your own out of hardwood or repurposed steel. The Woodstock D3757 earned high marks from us, but the levers aren't centered, so be careful you don't trip over them. If you plan on leaving your machine in the base at all times, the SawStop Industrial is a smart choice, as you can lower it to the floor so as not to put undue pressure on the casters or allow it roll away at an inopportune moment. Overall, though, you're unlikely to go too wrong with the Oasis Machinery MB800, as its stout frame will last for years, regardless of what you ask it to do.

Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
