With the recent purchase of a Hammond B# saw, I am looking for suggestions for a mobile base for it.

What have other owners used?

Thanks

I used an idea from Guy Lautard: http://lautard.com/casters.html
though using different casters.

I just bolted four good quality casters through the holes in the bottom of the base of my G4. It works well and the saw is easy to move around. Downsides are that it raises the table up several inches, and since there is nothing immediately under the saw the dust drawer cannot be used. Making a new base that addresses these is slowly percolating up the to-do list, but honestly neither of those are a very big deal for me.
