I am doing a pretty massive overhaul on my ridgid r4512. Adding a router table, router fence, outfeed table. I have a small shop in the corner of my basement. It’s about 12×14.

I want to add additional storage to my router table in the form of a simple cabinet. Are there any recommendations for the casters so it’s properly supported? I don’t want to add too much weight to the fence.

Thanks for looking

Historically, I’ve just used an old bathroom vanity that someone discarded, and mount it on castors so that it’s close to the underside of the router table. That way I can roll it out when needed, and it doesn’t add any weight to the router table, but is there for emergency support if ever necessary.
