    If a tool is to be judged on it’s utility then this is a winner. What makes this base so great is that it does what it’s supposed to do, does it well, and sells for around fifty bucks.

    My shop is so small Hennie Youngman could do a whole routine around it. I don’t have the luxury of thousands of square feet of space to plant work stations and production tools. So, I rely on putting everything on wheels to keep it out of the way untill I need it. I made my own untill I discovered the HTC2000 mobile base.

    I ordered one for my jointer and another for my table saw. My jointer is now a dream come true! The large wheels track easily and smoothly and it sets down firmly. The only drawback was that the front was higher than the back but that is an easy fix with a spacer or adjusting up your machines leveling feet.

    Oddly enough I did not have this problem on the second one I ordered for the table saw. That on is so level you could set grade with it. For the life of me I can’t figure the difference but who cares? The only downside I noticed on the one for the table saw was that my saw may be a little heavy for it. I have an old, big Craftsman with a custom made T-Square fence. It rolls very nicely but the cam levers for raising and lowering seem to strain a little in the lift mode. If you are going to move larger machinery I would suggest contacting the company regarding their custom made program.

    Overall, if you ever want a stationary machine to have any portability you can’t go wrong with this product. And at this price, you can afford a little custom tuning to get exactly what you want.

    HTC Mobile base review, November 30, 1999

    This review is from: HTC HTC2000 Universal Mobile Base (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I have purchased 4 of these mobile bases and find them acceptable for “home shop” use. The bases are extremely flexible in that they consist of 4 heavy pieces of angled steel with numerous adjustment holes so that they can be assembled in a very wide variety of sizes. The bases themselves are quite sturdy. The “weakest” point of the base is in the plastic cambered lever that raises/lowers two wheels in order to allow movement of the toolstand. Being plastic the levers do not “appear” to be as sturdy as the rest of the stand and could break off. However, that being said, I have NOT had any problem with mine moving a jointer and a drill press to date. In fact, I am quite pleased with them and find them to be the most economical, yet acceptable stand available.

    Yes, it has the expected sturdy construction, but the foot levers to raise and lower are a little hard to operate. I have a jointer mounted on one and I find I have to assist in raising and lowering the machine as I operate the rather thin foot levers. And if i’m not careful, I can lower the machine down with a thud.

    In contrast to the Delta design, which I have my workbench mounted on, it is much easier to raise and lower with the single and larger foot pedal. Delta’s design of a single caster also does seem easier to pivot with.

    5 stars for srurdy construction
    -2 stars for the hard to operate foor levers

    3 stars overall

    If you need a mobile base that’s ready to put together out of the box, the HTC2000 will serve your needs well enough. If you’re able to make the rails yourself for the Delta model, or need a custon size as I did, I would go for the Delta 50-345 model instead since I find its design easier to use.
