Lift for router cabinet

As I have tight space in then shortly after finishing my router cabinet I found that I need moveable base for it. I wasn’t able to install decent (lockable) swivel casters because I had too little space under this cabinet (the top of the cabinet needs to be at the same level with my table saw and workbench).
So I installed two small swivel casters at one end and built this hinge mechanism into the other end, used oak and birch.
It can be operated by the foot pedal and the hinge can be locked into moveable position by two rods.
