In a small shop, tool stands on casters allow you to reconfigure the space to work comfortably. But even with locking casters, tools may not seem stable when fixed.

For a firmer platform, install swivel casters and a straight-line action clamp at each corner of the tool stand. Simply wheel the tool to where it's needed and push the clamp handles down to lift the wheels off the ground. Attaching a protective furniture foot pad to the bottom of each clamp provides a no-slip, non-marring surface.
