    I Stu'ed around in the shop today

    I purchased a Shopfox mobile base for my Bellsaw planer a

    G7314 Heavy-Duty Mobile Base supposed to have 700 lb. capacity.

    However I discovered that the casters don't seem to have the same capacity.

    So I exchanged the casters for much better rolling & locking casters but in the process had to weld on some plates to extend the caster mounts now I can move the planer with one hand & with the locking wheels it doesn't move.

    I also purchased the planer pals to fit this planer.

    Looks good Bart, and you did not even paint it
