Heavy duty casters
WoodRiver Universal Mobile Base Hardware Kit
I installed this base on my cast iron 6" jointer for mobiity in my basement workshop. The instructions were adequate but not great, they don't show the orientation of the wheels on a machine. The hardware supposedly works with up to a 1-1/2" base platform, but the supplied bolts aren't long enough for that. I used the recommended 3/4" plywood base and it's fine.
The wheels roll effortlessly on my concrete floor, and lock down when needed. This is much better than the 2" casters I had before.

I use it to move a jet table saw around my shop when you put the wheels in the up position the the saw moves around with ease
This is a well fabricated universal base. Four point floor contact with levelers and still easy to move a 500lb cabinet saw. Requires a 3/4 to 1 1/2" thick wood panel to mount the corners to. But will fit about any size machine base, and the 600lb weight capacity is better than many costing considerably more.
Just what I wanted
I bought this to wheel around an old cast iron craftsman table saw. It was easy to assemble. Reading reviews on other brands, I was worried the levers letting the wheels up and down might not be heavy duty enough. That was NOT the case! These are fairly heavy guage steel and shouldn't be a problem. I still need to "tweak" the leveling feet a little to prevent any sliding but all in all, it works great. Good deal for the price.
The Wheels were heavy enough for my tablesaw.
Solidly built, flexible design

Very solidly built casters that you add to your own plywood base. Allowed me to design a custom base for my lathe. I showed heavy as a con but this is not really a downside for most applications
Wow! what a great product!
I recently received the kit and found the instructions easy to understand, the assembly went quickly and the base lets me roll my 300 lb table saw around the shop like a baby stroller. Great product, I would recommend it highly.
I got this for a band saw. It is sturdy and works OK, but the levers to raise and lower the front wheels can get out of position.

Simple to set up, works. My drum sander is Rock stable when the legs are up
Nicely made, easy to assemble
I was surprised at the weight of the unit - should be sufficiently heavy-duty for most any home shop stationary machine.
My application was for a drillpress. I made the 3/4" plywood base 8" wider and 2" longer than the DP base to add stability. Assembling the plywood to the mobile base was trivial. Getting the DP onto the base required the use of a 2x4 on its side to clear the rather high sides on the mobile base pieces (I didn't measure their height, but at least two and maybe three 3/4" plywood pieces would stack within them).
As another has noted (and for which I thank them), before assembly, put a washer on the outside of each fixed wheel to prevent shaving. Not a big deal at all, but that should be part of the package from the factory.
So far, the stability of the DP on the mobile base is certainly adequate. I intend to, but as yet have not, secure the DP base to the mobile base.
On my less-than-perfect concrete floor, I have found that I sometimes need to readjust the "leveling screws" to keep the base from slightly racking. This would certianly be easier if the screws were a bit longer and slotted on the top. Maybe I'll fix that someday.....
