I’ve tried lockable casters a few times and they didn’t work for me. The tool rocked a bit which I found annoying. And sometimes one of the locking casters would come unlocked at inconvenient times. So I got a mobile base for my older 6” Delta jointer a few years back. No regrets at all. It installed easily and works great. If I recall, it was an HTC that was rated at 500 lbs. I think my jointer weighs about 250 lbs which is probably pretty close to what your Rigid jointer weighs.
