I defiantly will need casters on whatever table I make or buy. I've also been watching Craigslist to see if something pops up. Biggest problem is finding something I can wrestle around myself with just an engine hoist.

Once you have casters on worktables you will never go without especially in a smaller shop like mine where the furniture has to be rearranged for different projects. Make sure they have plenty of load rating for the heaviest possible job. On my first table I had to upgrade after a wheel collapsed when I grossed out with table and project at aprox.1000lbs. Another tip if you are using an engine hoist is leave enough space under the bottom shelf/supports to let the hoist legs pass under the table for loading and unloading the heavy stuff without breaking your back. :D
