Default Wheels for the EZ (yet again)

Thought I'd mention one more way to add wheels to the EZ. I took a piece of 3?4" UHMW about 6" long. I first cut it to the interior width of the EZ legs. I then routed both sides to give it the "T" shape so it could slide (actually gently tapped with a hammer) into the leg. I then cut the 6" length into four 1.5" sections and finally drilled and threaded the a center hole for wheels. The wheels have both a rotation lock as well as a brake so when I set them, the table goes no where.

I should mention that once I put the wheels on I felt the need to brace the legs length-wise to make the frame a bit sturdier for movement.

Nice. Just FYI years ago I put the 1/2" studded orange wheel double locking casters from Woodcraft ( that's a mouth full ) on my EZ-One and the 1/2" thread will self tap the extrusion - no need for any other fasteners or parts.

Mike,
So you threaded the casters directly into the side channel of 2 of your SME legs? Did you need to trim the SME legs to level it?

The back two legs have casters and the front have the plastic adjusters. I did trim the back ones after applying the casters. Here are two post with my bench:
