    If you really want it mobile, there are various kickdown wheel arrangements posted here. Lots like a wheelbarrow, except 2 wheels, and they don't contact until needed.
    I ended up moving it on a dolly I welded a while back for holding/moving motorcycles when the wheels are off. Then I used the shop crane to lift it onto the CNC. Heck of a time doing it alone - but worth it! Now that it's on there - doesn't need to be mobile again. Hoping this stays put....for a LONG time

    Got the 2nd video up on YouTube. Looks like this will end up being a 3-part series. Like the last video, it's a bit long, but there is a (semi-sad) twist at the end that may be worth waiting for.... Hope you enjoy!
