I just got my new Nova Voyager DP. I could not believe how heavy the head is. Required some serious ingenuity to get if from the garage to the basement workshop.

Anyway, facing the assembly task now, and started reading thru the owners guide. Right up front it says to NOT use a mobile base for this machine. I assume the warning is due to the high center of gravity with the weight of the head. My guess is the head is ~120 lbs with the base/column/table ~150 lbs. Having a small shop I absolutely need to put this DP on a mobile base.

I have a Rockler universal mobile base that should easily handle the weight. But, I'm wondering just how much risk there really is in putting this machine on a mobile base.

So, has anyone done this or have thoughts on this risk in doing this?
