I made a mobile base for my Jet 6”.
If I had it to do again, I’d do it differently.

My problem is even with locking casters, they still ‘wiggle’ around. I’d be better off replacing the two casters on one end with non-swivel wheels and the casters on the opposite end with feet.
To move it around, just lift the end with the feet, much like pushing around a wheelbarrow. When set back down, it should be stable.
