The Ridgid 6” jointer is very top heavy. I would think that just putting casters on the stand legs would invite a tip over the first time the wheels hit an obstruction on the floor. You’d be better off putting the casters on a wider piece of plywood and then bolting the jointers legs to the plywood.
