Good thing too if you ask me. I think this is a horrible mobile base. Designed by an silly person if you ask me. The aluminium levers are too short, and yet they and the associated castors stick out too far, so you are always damaging your feet around them. There is a natural tendency to lift each corner separately to reduce the load so that the inadequate levers can cope and I then worry about distorting whatever the darned thing is supposed to support.Sawdust Producer":3rsn8pvz said:I do believe that Brimarc has stopped importing them.
If it is going on something small it isn't too bad a mobile base. I use one on my floor-standing mortiser. Too much flex to it I would imagine for something larger or heavier.Sawdust Producer":2ta28rh5 said:Hi all where in the Uk can I now purchase the

I've got two of these kits on E-bay at the moment if you're interested. One brand new still in the original box. The other used. Getting rid of them as separates gone and they won't lift the Felder.Mr Bump":3srxshgr said:As an alternative, Axminster do the 'Axminster Mobile Base Kit' MMBWFL at just over £30. If you ignore the instructions and thickness the timber for a snug fit to the metal bits it is a very sturdy mobile base. I use mine with a bandsaw and would recommend it.
