Question: Workbench on Casters?
My "shop" doubles as warm storage for one car in a two-car garage, so all of my stationary tools are on casters. I could go as large as 30-36" wide by 8' long with a workbench as long as it was on wheels and I was to use the space under it for storage. I can mount locking wheels on it but have been trying to find the best way to immobilize it for working.
I've seen portable tool bases (such as my bandsaw) where one end has "lifters" that lower the wheels to move the tool and lower it onto rubber "feet" for use. I've looked for commercial models but haven't found any that are big enough and heavy duty enough to handle the job. I've been toying with ideas and the only one so far is to use a large push-action clamp (picture attached) on each corner (or one end), but I don't know how well they'd work. This one, from Rockler, is only rated at 150# (and I don't know if it will lift that) but this is just to give you an idea of what I'm thinking.
I know others share my "dual purpose workspace" issue. I'd like to know what you've tried that worked well and what didn't work so well.
