If you want to move the heaviest of equipment with ease, check out the
Rockler All-Terrain Mobile Base. The optional extensions will fit any
equipment, and the large locking 5" wheels allow for easy movement but lock
solid into place.

Best,
Christopher

Yes they do make a caster set. HOWEVER because the legs have so much twist
in them the casters are next to worthless. You would be better off buying a
universal mobile base from Rockler for about $50-$60.

That's what I did on the used Craftsman RAS I bought this past year. The built-in casters
were total crap; threw them away and put the whole rig on a Delta universal mobile base.

Yikes, you'll give that dangerous monster wheels so it can chase you
round the shop instead of sitting there passively waiting to bite you?

It is reasuring that some thing never change. I bought my RAS in 1979 and
got rid of it some where around 1987.

Mine came with a leg and caster set. I never used them, because I
have my RAS built into the workbench along the wall. Gives me a
long feed table.

Whoops! I went and checked. I have the legs, but it doesn't mention
casters. Some day I may even find a use for the leg kit.
