Get the "universal mobile base". Get some hardwood (or 1/5" square
TUBING (not pipe) and bolt it together.
Alternatively, drop the bucks for the Delta one.
I've got the delta mobile base, and I agree it's well designed. Easy to
assemble, strong, and obviously designed to fit the saw exactly. In the
down position, it's very solid, and in the up position I can push 400
lbs of machinery around with one hand. The swiveling third wheel makes
it very easy to maneuver around tight curves.
My only wish is that it lifted the saw a little higher, but that's
because the floor of my shop is not very flat (concrete basement floor
in poor condition with several bumps and discontinuities). On the plus
side, there's plenty of adjustment in the foot levers, so I can get the
thing sitting solid on the floor on all points. With a reasonably flat
floor, this wouldn't be an issue.
I agree with you Roy on wishing that it lifted the saw a bit higher. I
found that by raising the rubber feet at the end of the table a bit, I
can clear most of the undulations in the concrete floor. The seam down
the middle is the biggest PITA.

I have this one on my Grizzly contractor saw. It also apparently works on
Grizzly's cabinet saws.
I like it better than the 3-wheeled mobile base on my jointer. The wheels
are larger and deal better with flaws in the concrete floor, and 4 wheels
seem more stable than 3.
