    This review is from: HTC PortaMate PM1000 Universal Mobile Base (Tools & Home Improvement)

    After reading the reviews I purchased one of these units to add mobility to a work bench in my shop. I planned to purchase additional units for other tools. I will do so but most likely not these. From the assembly problems I encountered I found that at the maximum size listed the unit in my opinion was not strong enough. It did not please me that two of the bolts needed for the wheel assemblies were missing and required a trip to the local builders supply to purchase the needed bolt assemblies. The major problem was that quality control (perhaps lack of quality control would be a better term) allowed one of the wheel assemblies to be shipped with one of the holes needed to mount the fixed wheels missing. Nothing that a session with the drill press wouldn’t solve but enough extra to be irritating. Summary – if you have a fully equipped shop and basic machinists’ skills with a load which is light you may find the base acceptable. In my opinion if you want a complete unit in the box, with easy assembly (not likely with the enclosed instructions) and capable of all advertised perhaps you need to look further.

    I don’t really have a buttoned-up process for finishing at the house now. I usually just wheel a bench outside to do most of my stain work. A fan never seems to get all the fumes out.

  4. Bill Thebuilder

    Your welcome. I have a few machines that I use my shopvac on because don’t have the space or money for the dust collection system (dream of having one ? ). Now as far as the finishing/staining process do you recommend a fan to blow fumes out the doors (have a garage).

  5. FurnitureWorkshop

    Thanks Bill! That shop vac hooked to my random orbit sander most of the time.

  6. Bill Thebuilder

    I really like this video of the most you have done! At the end you were saying about shop vacs? Which machines do you mostly use them on?

    One thing your missing is a sump pump when the cellar floods. All that stuff floating around is not good.

    Great looking shop and a wonderful personality. You should be on TV hosting your own show. Best wishes man.

    I had my electrician run a bunch of outlets off my existing service about four feet off the ground, so there’s one handy for most tasks. But the outlet I use the most is the power strip I zip tied to my main workbench. I run power to that with a long extention cord, so I’m free to move my bench around. The DIY Network has some good layout suggestions online too. Give them a try for some more inexpensive ideas. Good luck wth the shop! – Jim

    Sure thing, TB. Good luck with the new biz!
