You hit the nail right on the head. The stand has four (4) wheels and the rear two are swivel units set up on a sort of cammed arrangement with a large (4"?) curved lever that allows you to lift with your toe, press with your sole. In the lift position, it hikes up the back of the saw about 3/4" and you can move it anywhere, then when you drop it... it's resting on large adjustable sliders in the rear, and non-swivel wheels in the front. Theres a sheet of 3/4" plywood inlaid in the metal frame, and the saw base is fastened to the plywood so there's no chance of it tipping out. I believe the "cart" is a Woodcraft item.
My current table saw also has a mobile cart, and I intend to put locking casters on my jointer. I'm probably going to sell/replace the tablesaw, and when I do, the "new" cabinet saw will have to have mobility as well.

What kind of movable cart do you have under the band saw? Is it something that the machine can be cammed up off the ground to move it, and once you have it where you want it, dropped down so that the machine does not walk around under use? I hope that my second question is understandable.
I have an old Atlas band saw that I would like to set up the way yours is set up.
BTW, for those of you who are forever looking for hardware, one of the catalogs I would heartily recommend is Lee Valley's. Here's a link:https://www.leevalley.com/home/CatalogSelect.aspx?c=2
Do yourself a favor, order something online and get the three (3) main catalogs (woodworking tools, hardware, and garden tools). Your better half will love the garden catalog, and the hardware catalog may inspire you to change hardware on existing cabinets... although there's way more than knobs and drawer pulls in that monster.
