  1. Lee

    This base works great for my situation. Assembly was fairly straightforward but I have the following to add:1. The two swivel plates have grease on them for a reason. Don’t wipe it off.2. Step 2.d. (and duplicate 2.e) uses lock washers and nuts. There was no lock washers but the nuts were lock nuts so no problem.3. Step 8 says to drill 1/2″ holes in the plywood to accommodate the bolts. Several people commented that they used a 3/8″ bit instead, and consequently some had trouble with alignment. I also played around with this. Save your time and just follow the instructions.4. After drilling the 12 holes determine the best arrangement of the corners by laying the plywood and corners next to the tool to be supported and consider factors such as the direction you will normally want to move the tool, the accessibility of the foot levers, whether the foot levers could be a tripping hazard, etc. After my first attempt I did this and found that the second arrangement shown under “Assembly Examples” was best for my situation.I hope this helps your assembly process.

    Very Easy to assemble. I used a 1″x 12″piece of solid pine as the base of my metal band saw. Easy to adjust for level.This is a MUST in a small 2 car garage. We have one space for the tool chest / wood working / fab equipment. With these we can move out a car and the metal or fab tools to expand the workshop.I will be buying a couple more of these kits.

    Man o man – an honest to goodness heavy duty well made easy to assemble product – a rarity these days to be sure. Bought a 3/4″ piece of plywood at HD and had it cut to accommodate the 33″ square base of my Craftsman band saw, marked and drilled the holes using 1/2 ” drill bit, and slid into the easy to assemble corner brackets and tightened it all together. Voila! an easy to maneuver band saw. I also took the lead from another reviewer and attached the 2 raise/lower levers together with a piece of sturdy but lightweight aluminum so as to better manipulate the raising and lowering process with a single move using one foot. Nice product, and one I would not hesitate to purchase again.

    So, I needed a mobile base for a Craftsman jointer. The overall length between legs was around 48″ and I found it difficult to find a mobile base that would work. I ran across this Bora Portamate PM-1100 and figured it could work. It didn’t take too long to show up and I wasn’t expecting anything over the top but some components to a mobile base solution. As I unboxed it and started looking over the parts I was really pleased with the build quality. It didn’t take too long too get my plywood cut to size and put it all together. It functions very well and is extremely easy to use after assembly. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great custom mobile base. I’ve already thought about getting at least one more, just gotta get more plywood!

    I originally bought the HTC2000 Adjustible Mobil Base kit and extra extender kit to make a base for my compound miter saw which is on a stand that is 28” wide by 63” long. The HTC2000 and extender kit went together fine and moved the saw around great. The problem I had with that arrangement was every time I went to use the saw I tripped over the mobile base frame because it was a giant rectangle frame. The stand that the saw sits on has upside down V-shaped flared out legs. Between the legs the saw sits on a pair of parallel bars that connect to the top of the Upside down V – so they are more centered than the full width of the legs at the floor level. I kept trying to figure out how to modify that mobile base unit so the front part of the frame wouldn’t be right where you need to stand to use the saw.I started looking around on Amazon again at mobile bases and discovered the Portamate PM-1100 so decided to give it a try. Glad I did! I just finished assembling it and it works great. I used some 1×6 pressure treated boards for the 28” short ends and a 63” piece of 2×4 down the center forming large “H” configuration. I connected the boards into the “H” using some carriage bolts. Plopped the saw on top of the big “H” and it works perfectly! Rolls around very nicely and no more tripping over the frame.A few suggestions for assembly…when you are assembling the corner pieces, drill the holes a little bigger than the size of the bolt. If you have a drill press use that. I didn’t get some of my holes straight at first and had trouble lining up the holes for the top/bottom plates until I reamed out the holes I drilled crooked. Also it would have been great to have a second set of hands available especially when I was fighting the crooked holes but I eventually used the bench vice and that helped. Plan out and then double check your plan where you want the swivel wheels to be – both on the short end or on the lon end. I thought I had it figured out until it was all together and I realized for such a long piece it would be better to have the swivel wheels on the short end. So After struggling with all my crooked holes, I had to take it all apart and put it together again with the wheels in different corners. Went together easier the second time! Lastly, be aware that there isn’t much clearance under the bottom plate, only about a half inch, so if your floor isn’t level or you are moving a long piece down a signtly sloped floor, you will scrape bottom.I plan to buy another Portamate PM-1100 for my lathe and configure it like I did for the miter saw, just not sure what to do with the HTC2000 now but I’m sure in time I will find a tool that needs wheels. Good luck – this was a good project for me, a novice just setting up a shop.

  6. Sharm

    This is the second Bora Portamate PM-1100. I bought another mobile base for my table saw. I will say that that The Bora portamate is by far a better quality product that the one for my table saw. The Bora has all metal parts and solid built. I plan on changing the mobile bases on all of my equipment If you are wanting your monies worth. Check this out. You wont be sorry

    I have two tools that I wanted to mobilize, but had my doubts about how this item was going to work.I bought one set to try out. The item was out of stock when I ordered, but Amazon sent me an e-mail three days later saying it was being shipped. I didn’t expect this so quickly, but was pleased. Out of the box, these appeared to be heavy duty, all metal construction (except for wheels). I decided to install it on the largest tool, a cast iron router table requiring a 30×40 piece of plywood. If that didn’t work, I knew I could recut the plywood and use in on my smaller bandsaw. Assembly was easy. The short bolts were perfect for the 3/4″ plywood which is sufficient to support the table. (If I had to span much more than 40″, I might think about using another 1/2 to 3/4 sheet of plywood-longer bolts are provided for that). The heavy tool rolls easily around my shop when I want it out of the way and is steady and solid when I am working on it. I was so impressed, I ordered a second unit for the bandsaw.

  8. Jacob

    I bought this because all of my tools must be mobile in my 2 car garage.For the bandsaw I built it per the instructions: 1 inch bigger length and width with the wheels facing outward for more lateral stability. The only issue I had, and not to the fault of the mobile base, is that my Porter Cable bandsaw has a swing out door that was blocked by wheels hardware so I couldn’t open it. My solution was to put a 2×4 under the saw on both sides to raise it up. I can now open the door 3/4 of the way until the raising lever gets in the way…..If I had realized this before I built it I could have easily avoided the problem.When raising and lowering I have to do so slowly because the bandsaw is top heavy and not bolted down and had a scary moment for a split seconds. My advice and plan is to bolt everything down to the base.For the drill press I made the base 1 inch bigger in both directions and used threaded bolts to secure the drill press to the base and the wheels positioned outwards. The drill press is very secure. I see no reason it would every tilt or wobble.In summary, this was an amazing purchase and extremely helpful for me.

    Easy to put together. Easy to customize size for different machine footprints. Moves heavy tools with ease and is stable without changing hight of tool or work surface. highly recommended.
