The shop becoming smaller and smaller, I really needed a way to move easily my big and heavy table saw.
I wanted something compact, here is my solution :
First, my saw had already a couple of threaded holes at the bottom of the rear feet, designed for attaching the vendor's kit, which I don't have.
Here are all the pieces before assembly.
and here you can see how it works.
The wheels are fitted on a wide shaft, the whole width of the saw. One of the holes is used as a pivot, and screwed in the other hole, you can see this little piece, made of a section of threaded rod, that will anchor the end of a little jack made of a threaded rod, a couple of nuts and a piece of tubing. This little jack is attached to the big bracket that will lower the shaft and the wheels to put them in contact with the ground.
And here is how it is cranked. The reason for the long jack is actually to provide accessibility to the nut when the wheel is mounted.
And here we go ...
