My only advice is to steer clear of 3-wheeled bases for equipment with a high center of gravity, such as a floor model drill press. They can be quite tippy when being moved, and sometimes when parked.

Most 4-wheel bases available commercially have leveling feet for when the tool is parked. You can definitely pull off the same in a shop made base.

Good luck.
