DIY Mobile base for Powermatic 3520 lathe

I recently purchased an used PM3520 but needed a mobile base.  I did not want to pay over $350 for the mobile base that is sold on line.  Here is what I made for about $40.  I had 3 of the 4 casters which is why my cost was so low.

Looks interesting. The pictures are too small for me to see much detail though. Do you raise and lower the machine one wheel at a time ?

Are the rods / nuts a stabilizer, stiffener or what ?

Did you drill holes in the lathe legs to attach your setup ?

The pictures came out small because I had to reduce their size because of this sites limitations. I raise and lower both wheels (on one side) simultaneously.  The threaded rods and nuts pinch the square tube and hold it in place.  Did not drill into the legs.  All the holes are drilled into the square tube.

I just remembered; I posted this on the Lumberjacks website. Larger and nice photos.  That site allows for much large photos.  It's in the FORUMS.

Julian,

You can reduce the "size" of the picture with out Having to make it so small in size.  You can reduce the resolution while leaving the size larger.   Check out  PIXresizer  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
