I use 4 locking swivel casters on my table saw, band saw, and drill press. I rarely lock the band saw. Only when ripping something big. It is very stable and doesn’t move when I push something. My drill press is new but i don’t expect it to move and I may never lock all 4 casters. My table saw moves the most but with all 4 wheels locked it works. I get my casters from either HD or Lowe’s. The thing I have found is that they seem to have 3 of whatever 4 you are looking for.
