I have a jointer/planer which has fixed adjustable legs on it and we took out the fixed legs and ordered a mini mobile base by Shop Fox. In putting it together I found that the jointer/planer rocked once on the base. My next door neighbor is a retired welder from Norfolk Southern in Charlotte and he said the base was poorly constructed as the metal pieces forming the bottom did not line up. Also, a friend of mine took a piece of 45 degree angle iron and cut it into pieces, then welded them together. We cut holes for the casters to be screwed onto it through, put a piece of plywood in it and my table saw has been rolling around in it for 21 years.
If you don’t mind a little work making your own could be fun and not as expensive. My Shop Fox cost $59.95 and you could pick up a piece of angle iron for maybe $10 or less.
Hope this helps
