I'm currently looking into machine feet. Is it best to go for anti-vibration, levelling or a standard polypropylene foot? I'm guessing the anti-vibration foot could cause issues with stability once the gantry starts moving around at speed.

Here's the two types I'm looking at:

The router does not move whatsover when working, it has 4 of these feet, one at each corner. It says each can hold 900kg.
