Rockler Power Tool Mobile Base Hardware
This sturdy, affordable mobile base hardware allows you to build a base of any size by adding wood stretchers in whatever length you need. This adds up to big cost savings, especially when compared to large mobile bases that are ready-made. Just step on the generously-sized pedal and the mobile base raises the tool onto a single swivel caster. Tripod design allows for easy maneuverability.

I had to build supports longer than my first measurement due to "ears" on my jointer base, but it still works.
There is some slack between the set down onto the feet and the lift up castor, but not too much to overcome. A better design may be to have the bolts in the rails go down into the bottom of the supports rather than being horizontal, which would enable the user to to remove slack from less than tight fitting rails.
Over all, still very happy with purchase.

Depending on the type of wood used for the wooden extensions between the base corners, it may also be possible to relieve the wooden extension pieces to allow the tabs to sit down into the wooden rails and still have enough strength in the base.
Another option is to have the extension pieces between the corner pieces where the casters are made from square steel tube cut to allow the tabs to sit flush.
I see lots of ways to make this work....................................
With a narrow base, the stability of what is mounted to it has to be considered. Tall things can get top heavy on narrow bases, especially when they are moved.
Mobility of this base from Rockler is very good. Dennis B
The problem of dragging the extension table legs may be more of a problem with the floor itself. I find that even though the floor appears flat, there are places that the feet on the base will scuff as I move the saw around. This is an adjustment issue that will depend on how you set the base up.
