There are castors for machinery like Loren points out, but I agree with Jonah about there being slop even when they are locked. The moble bases out there are proven to work well. I have built a moble base for my drill press. Cheap clunky castors with no locks that actually worked well for that application. I put good locking castors under a work bench. Huge mistake on my part. Could not keep that bench from racking. I would be afraid of my table saw moving while I am trying to use it.
