Delta Floor Model Drill Press. I currently have it mounted on a 1 1/2" thick plywood base with wheels underneath which raises the whole thing about 4 1/2" above the floor. It's always felt a bit too high. My other recent post concerning adding an auxiliary table will make the work surface even higher. So I'm thinking that I should re-do the mobile base to get the work surface lower to the ground. Again, I've seen several designs and would appreciate your suggestions. Due to my 'shop' size I would like to keep the drill press mobile. I also thought about making a standing platform....hinge it to the front of the base to flip up when not in use or flip down when I need to do some drilling.

With all the stuff going on, I finally got my Brand New Saw Stop contractor saw all put together. I had it all in my garage for some time in boxes. I had to put it aside as I needed to get all of my tools and stuff out of the tubs and onto some new shelves and get my wife's stuff in order so she can put the car in the garage. So here are a few pics of the new table saw with the mobile base which works really good.
Just picked up my brand new Saw Stop Contractor saw with 36" fence and mobile base from the Woodcraft Store in Franklin TN which was about 90 minutes from my home in Bowling Green KY. They had it all on a pallet and fork lifted it up so I could get it slid into the truck bed. Once I got home I got got out all the boxes into the garage. Then the big job was to get the saw itself out of the truck. So I cut up the box and all the Styrofoam and was able get the saw out and put on a box and rolled it in. So later today I will get started on getting the saw set up.
This past Sunday I ordered the Shop Fox Mini Base for my Grizzly G0555 Band Saw. I have had my band saw up on casters for years, and it's always been a tad high. The casters are about 3" tall, so the band saw is kind of a good fit for a 6' tall woodworker at this point, I am only 5'-9". Also when pushing material through the resaw blade, the band saw wants to walk and rock a bit because of the height of the casters, so am hoping the low profile mobile base will stabilize the saw. I should be getting it this Thursday, I'll let ya all know how it feels and works!
