>I have a jet 1642 and would like to put it on wheels. Any suggestions? Two heavy duty wheels on one side with two heavy duty casters on the other? Four heavy duty wheels? Any idea if I use four wheels on how to adjust for slightly uneven floors so it does not rock?

Thanks in advance for any replies. P.S. I hope to use the same idea for a workbench with LV cast iron legs and imagine that I will have the same issues.
