I drew up a design yesterday for removeable wheels for my Powermatic. I ordered the wheels this morning from Grizzly. I purchased a rolling hydralic jack from my local parts store for $16. I've designed the wheels to go on each end. I jack up one end and put the wheels on and then the other. I don't want my lathe to move so I'm removing the wheels when I get it moved. I'll post a photo when I get it built. Probably this weekend if the wheels get here.

The people who make Vega lathes sell machine movers at really reasonable prices. I'm sure they have one to fit your lathe. I couldn't put my hands on their website right now. I'll keep looking and get back with you if someone else doesn't
