Default mobility is now complete!

Having purchased the Dewalt 735x mobile planer stand - every major woodworking machine in
my shop is now mobile (my shop is our 2 car garage)
The need to have everything mobile is a necessity.
The stand comes with instructions to have the wheels mounted outside the frame.
But the two fixed wheels that are mounted on the outside of the frame always snags something.
This design cost me precious inches so I did some youtube research and found a guy (BumBee220)
who moved his wheels inboard. He had design schematics that really helped.

Even with a larger shop in the basement I like most of my tools mobile. Even the table saw is but it doesn't get moved as much.

Nice solution to what's pretty much a universal space problem.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Many of my tools also have wheels, but I always use my DeWalt 735 planer outside my small shop because of space constraints and the horrible mess that the planer can create if the hose comes off the planer. To be able to move the planer out and set it up easily I bought a Delta Miter Saw/Planer Stand. DeWalt now makes a better version of this same stand design. Since the mounting holes of the planer did not match the attachment rails of the stand, I made an adapter plate from 3/4 birch cabinet plywood, then bolted it between the rails of the stand and the planer.

https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-Miter-.../dp/B0066N7C74

I can easily move it around with the planer attached, much like a hand truck. I store it in the shop with the planer attached, standing on end in the corner. When I want to use the planer , I wheel it out to the driveway, set the handle end down, and then lift with the second handles. The stand has gas springs in it to reduce the lifting load. It folds back down by just lifting slightly and releasing a latch, then folding it down. I then tip it up like a hand truck and wheel it back into the shop, leaving it again standing on end in the corner. It tales up less than 3 sq ft of floor space when stored.

Ah yes, another mobile tool user. Congrats on learning how to make a small space bigger with the use of wheels! Half my tools are on casters too...wouldn't have a shop otherwise!

I might need to do this because I also find the outside the frame mounting to be a problem when moving it around. Thanks for posting this solution.

Nice stand. My shop is all mobile as well since I share the garage with a car and a bunch of stuff I really don't need or want
Thanks for sharing it

Randy, My Dewalt contractors table saw has the same mobile base (basically), with one difference... It has a rod to step on that goes through the holes in the pedal (shown in the first photo). It allows you to step on the rod, instead of reaching under the machine to step on the pedal. I think the rod is 3/8" diameter. It would work well on your configuration also.
