I think its a good idea. The section under the circular flange has a bearing-similar to an axle bearing that rides on the bottom of the base, which allows it to turn freely.
One problem tho. When I had it extended for pics, it fell over while I was going for the camera. DUH. It broke the cylinder plunger pin so that's got to be fixed next.:wallbanging:

P1280092.jpg Here's a close up of the base sleeve. Your base looks plenty stout and I have some 2 x 4 inch c-channel to use for the mobile "feet". With casters partially hidden in the open portion of the "c", it should be low enough to go under 'bout anything. I think I'd trust yours for the heavier weight too.

That's cool on the bearing. Sorry about the pin. Sounds like you have it figured out. Go for it!

These work good for raising your GT up. Here I was replacing the steering column.

Looks like yours and Kenny's have a similar swivel "head", and a lot more portable than mine. I've got to do some rigging to move mine around. At 54" tall collapsed it won't work in the pick-up bed so its gonna be limited to shop and yard.------------Kenny's got to slow down on these great ideas. I can't build 'em fast enough.:bigrofl::bigrofl:

Nice, Amigatec! That's what mine looked like new. Lost the base long ago.
Lee, this was made about 10 years ago. I haven't used it as I don't have concrete to work off of.
