I make all of my own, I buy good casters from woodcraft and then build each different to match the machine. But if your going to buy one already built…DO NOT buy a shopfox.They have not got any better in the 21 years since Wayne bought his. When I got my new saw awhile back…I thought I would save time and money and just get a factory one. With in three days, the wheels bowed out so far that the metal base was sitting on the ground. My saw weighs about 600lbs….and the base was rated for 700lbs….BIG waste of money.

The one I built for my saw is rock steady and when the saw needs to be moved, it can easily be moved with one hand.

Here is a recent review of a mobile base from Andy… ...he gave it very high marks. You may pm him and ask him what he thinks of it now that he has had it longer.
