Product Description

Amazon.com

The Jet Heavy-Duty Universal Mobile Base is exceedingly strong and very stable, yet exceptionally lightweight. For added safety, the base has a unique spring pin design for easy quick-snap adjustments, and a low clearance design raises the machine just 1/2-inch off the floor for added stability. The base can be configured to fit a wide range of machines with weights up to 600-pounds.

Excellent product -- easy to assemble, sturdy, and it works!

Easy to assemble, and once the saw is on it, moves around my garage very smoothly.

I recently decided to put four of my tools on mobile bases. Because of the different sizes of the tools, I ended up buying two from Jet (Jet 708118 JMB-UMB Universal Mobile Base) and two from HTC (HTC2000 Universal Mobile Base). Since all four showed up at the same time, I was in a position to make a head-to-head comparison of them, and decided to write about it. As a result, you'll find this same review under both the Jet and the HTC Universal Base listings.

Upon Arrival:

All four bases were purchased from Amazon with free shipping, and all four arrived within just a couple of days via UPS. The HTC base pieces were wrapped in bubble wrap inside a cardboard outer box, and the Jet bases were in Styrofoam cutouts inside a cardboard outer box, so nothing sustained any shipping damage.

The next day, before I even unpacked anything, UPS showed up again with a bag. Inside were two pieces of thick, perforated steel about 18" long - no note, no explanation, no return address, nothing. It turns out that one of the Jet bases was missing these two pieces. Someone - I assume at Amazon - caught it and rectified it, literally before I knew they were missing. When I examined everything closer, it was obvious that this particular base had been purchased by someone else and returned to Amazon, then resold. Not a big deal, but I think that explains the missing/found parts.

Unpacking:

I opened up and unpacked one HTC and one Jet base at the same time, to compare parts, instructions, and tool requirements before starting.

The HTC instructions were a 20-page stapled booklet in three languages.

This base is awsome. I moved my table saw to this from a delta base and couldn't be happier. The assembly took a total of about 5 minutes since there is no hardware to worry about. As to the people that saw this doesn't lock well enough for a table saw, turn the base 90 degrees. No mobile base should be set to roll in the outfeed direction of a TS. If you lock the back (fixed) casters, then the front casters can't turn so it becomes very solid.

After reading reviews of the HTC 2000, and knowing about the Delta UMB from personal experience, I decided to give the Jet a shot. I am glad that I did. Before getting to the review, though, five stars to Amazon's shipping department which shipped this product within a couple of hours of the time I placed the order. It hasn't arrived yet, but I bought a second one from my local tool shop. (OK, I'm weak. I couldn't wait.)
This mobile base was very simple to set up. The spring-loaded pins locked firmly in place, and I was able to perfectly size the base to the cabinet of the 8" jointer that now rests on it. To ensure stability, I cut a sub-base from 3/4" ply, placed that on/in the base, and then placed the jointer on top of that. I then bolted the two side tabs on the jointer cabinet to the ply.
With the wheels running opposite the length of the bed, the jointer does not move at all when being used. When it does get moved, though, it is very smooth and confident. I can't give five stars - those wheel locks are an unfortunate wart on an otherwise excellent accessory.

I bought this base for a Craftsman 10" hybrid cabinet table saw (weight approx. 430 lbs). This base was extremely easy to assemble -- took only a couple of minutes and no tools needed for assembly. Very solid and moves smoothly. I can move my table saw around without any difficulty whatsover. The base was very easy to adjust to the dimensions to my table saw. Two of the wheels lock with a foot lever. On smooth flooring it will still move slightly with effort, but wheeling it onto a rubber mat eliminates that. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would happily buy another one (which I will probably do when I buy a jointer/planer).

The base is well made, assembles VERY easily and quickly but has a major flaw - the LOCKING wheels do not lock well enough to prevent the saw from moving when you cut heavy material. This is dangerous and makes accurate cuts of larger material impossible. The rotating casters are the worst offenders.
I'm disappointed because it is a well made unit and Jet usually produces good quality products. As an engineer I view this as a design flaw rather than a quality control issue.

I recently purchased 2 mobile bases - 1 HTC for my Jet 17" Drill Press and 1 Jet Universal Mobile base for my 10" Jet Table Saw. For the HTC It took 40 minutes, 4 or 5 different size wrenches/sockets,attaching the castors, hammering the ill fitted roller flanges (which I think will still slip), sorting out if the spring bumps go up or down and installing the PLASTIC levers.

With the Jet, In 5 minutes with no tools and no castor subassembly, with metal levers my table saw was up and rolling.

I've been using this base under a jet contractor's saw with cast iron top for a few months now. The base is very sturdy, strongly made, and rolls smoothly. The big problem is that the wheels don't lock solidly, and I can't trust the saw to stay in place when I cut a large piece of plywood, etc. I'll probably buy a different base for the saw and use this one on something else like a drill press that only needs vertical support. Bottom line is it doesn't do the job for a table saw.
