    Hi all,
    I thought I'd share the wheels setup I made for my 4x4 Growth series table. It is made from 2x4 tubing with 5" swivel casters. I had to take 10-1/2" off the table legs to maintain the standard table height.

    Sorry for delay - I built a roof over the pad so I have more working space and setting up the workshop has taken me a lot longer than I expected! I have not had any time to mess with the TM, but I will post a pic of machine on wheels next day or so.

    You are supposed to cover the HOBART before posting photos on the site.!. J/K

    HeHe - I will photoshop next time!

    BigJoe I never got anything from you. Was it on the forum here? Not sure there is a way to PM each other on the FF, but you can email me at ocalawill@hotmail.com. Good to hear your TM is up and running. You are way ahead of me!

    Copy that. Drop me a line next time. I'm out there 2-3 times a week. I just bought the place in Dunnellon for my workshop but I don't live there I have a place in Ocala. I guess that is the plan eventually to move out there but it needs a lot of work and $ !

    >>What's next for you? hydraulic leveling legs Looks nice, great job<<

    Thanks guys. I'm in the process of making expanded metal shelfs for the two open areas underneath - but no hydraulics! ;). Probably should have done this before mounting the TM maybe??!! :cool: But it does roll really nicely. You have to try it to believe how smooth it rolls, I am happy! Now if I can just get finished here with the infrastructure of the shop I can devote some time to finishing the TM and get to making some stuff!
