Walking of stand.

Hi John,

What are your impressions of the new smooth sliding tables effect on the stand "walking" around in use?

I'm hoping this problem will be minimized with the new system, but I don't believe it will totally change since the resistance comes primarily from the interface of the saw to the wood in my opinion (especially on larger pieces). I did solve it using John's suggestion of a rubber floor mat. I actually had some truck re-tread samples which were about 7 ft. long which worked perfectly. I put the tread down (rubber on the road) so to speak, and the problem went away. I can stand on the rubber and the legs stick to the softer surface. Concrete just would not hold the saw in place.

Hi Dennis,

That must be one heavy mat! I did a very casual search for a suitable mat and didn't find one that I liked. My shop is pretty small and I can't seem to stop bringing in more tools, so I like putting things on mobile bases. I had posted a query asking if anyone had tried this and didn't get a response. So I saw Rockler advertising an adjustable HTC base on sale for about 30 bucks. I picked one up and it wouldn't open up large enough to fit the JMP base, that is until I did a few modifications! Keep in mind that because the JMP's base is flared and adjustable, it's footprint changes with height. I have found that with the mobile base lowered onto it's rubber feet that it moves a lot less and I think I may be able to add some rubber pieces that will help even more. I have been meaning to post some photos of the set up some day for others that may be interested. Even though the JMP is pretty light, I need to move it around to use the tablesaw or do laundry! So it is very handy to be able to roll it.

.

Tomorrow when I'm in the shop I'll take some specific photos on how I get around the walking by tying it to the wall. There might be some glimpse of it scattered around here in the meantime.

That reminds me, I'm overdo with a submittal!
I'll get on it.
