Now I can roll the beast where I want it. With the great 3” castors from Home Depot which lock in both directions I get mobility and stability.

I like what you did. I did something similar to my old bandsaw. Darn thing was just to high. Cool dust collection you added.

Nice solution! And you made it to fit your height. I have the grizzly stand and the heavy duty Shop Fox Dolly, and it adds inches for this 5’7” and shrinking guy. LOL!

Good job on having it mobile. What is the table height now compared to the pre-cut height? Looks to be pretty low but it could just be the perspective of the pics.
