I've mostly used tape on guitar binding.  I think if the banding is straight enough and the moisture in the glue doesn't cause it to warp, as long as there's an even glue line with some squeeze out with the tape the glue will probably hold.

Tough to predict tho.

lots of good advice here - I would add a caution when considering load ratings - kind of misses the point in many cases:
You want casters that ROLL effortlessly. More expensive but you'll be so glad. Go for ball bearings and Urethane tires, 4 inches if you have the vertical space. Remember you can keep the casters when you sell the tool and reuse for a lifetime.

Those red Woodcraft casters mentioned in this thread are a good value and work well in their capacity range.

Polywheels are fine on equipment which weighs next to nothing loaded.

Take a look at this one from Lowes. It is in between a 13 gallon kitchen bag and a big 33 gallon can at 23 gallon. Probably still use the bigger bag.

one more vote: we have had a narrow format RUBBERMAID trash bin in our shop for a long time and has really worked out well. This rectangular format in the LOWE's catalog page is a functional equivalent, Also fits next to a bench to sweep debris into. Do empty it regularly so it's easy to find stuff you accidentally drop in the bin  [wink].
This could also be hung in a shop-made wide fork-like receptacle to get it off the floor.

Post here what you finally chose to do.

You might laugh, but dedicating floor space for a garbage pale isn’t desirable to me.  Wall space is a little more plentiful, so I have a wooden hand screw clamp anchored to a stud and a 13 gal bag hangs off the handle.  But it’s not ideal because it’s at least 2 steps from anything (where dragging a bucket right to where I’m working is convenient).  Dust doesn’t get swept, it get vacuumed, so that’s not an issue (for me), but if you sweep, the narrow opening of the bag when the weight partially pulls the drawstring might be a nuisance.  It’s an option, but probably one few would adopt.

Two benches with a rectangular bin between them. The idea is to saw stuff the dust extraction doesn't catch too well (e.g. jigsaw where you also need clearance underneath) over the gap. You can also brush dust off either table into the general bin area and *most* of it will hit the target ;) FWIW, this is in somewhere you wouldn't fit one car, never mind two :/
