    Get QUALITY casters with wheels.

    Or buy Floor Locks. Some examples:

    Look at post #19 here: http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/b...ing-table.html

    That's the idea I am going with when I build mine.

    I used a couple of scissors jacks, but the table is so heavy, I'm finding I don't really need brakes.-img_1786-jpg

    That's a good idea too! Anything to save a little $. I think making my own is the way to go. I figured at least $200 if I buy the brakes.

    Anyone use trailer jacks?
    Placed near the casters it would allow you to immobilize the table once it's where you want it.
    Added benefit would be the ability to level the table and get four legs in contact with an uneven surface.
    That's the problem with trouble.
