BORA PM-1000 Universal Mobile Base
BORA PM-1000 Mobile Base Review
I’ve always been a huge proponent of working efficiently. Working efficiently in residential construction means preparing and setting up a job site to run smoothly, methodically and efficiently prior to the job starting. That principle applies the the workshop as well, especial a SMALL workshop space. The BORA PM-1000 universal base has allowed me to do that.
Design Your Shop to Be Mobile
I’ve been using PM-1000 universal mobile bases in my shop for several years. The PM-1000 allows me to move machines that weigh hundreds of pounds, out of the way, saving me valuable shop floor space. It allows me to have more tools that would fit in my shop because I can roll them out of the way, and store them against a wall when NOT in use. Its a game changer!
BORA PM-1000 Universal Mobile Bases Are Designed for BIG Tools
I use the Bora PM-1000 universal mobile base on any large, heavy tool that I can, but their designed for heavy tools.
- Table saw
- Band saws
- Drill presses
BORA PM-100 Universal Base – Easily expands
The PM-1000 can be adjusted in one inch increments to fit almost any machine. It has a base range of 14×14 to 31×31 (inches) square, to rectangles measuring up to 14×43 (inches).
Locking foot levers
The Bora PM-1000 universal mobile base has two “quick press” levers that you operate with with your foot. The levers make allow you to lock the tool in a fully stable position, or allow it to be easily rolled around. These levers work well and the 3-inch hard rubber wheels roll nicely.
The base has a weight capacity of 400 lbs., and is constructed of powder coated steel. Once a tool is installed on the base it raises that tool by approximately 1-inch in height.

Re-Think How You Use Your Shop
