Rockler Caster Kit with One-Touch Lift Mechanism
ROCKLER CASTER KIT WITH ONE-TOUCH LIFT MECHANISM ADDS MOBILITY AND STABILITY TO HEAVY WORKBENCHES
Lever-Action Lifts Heavy Objects for On-Demand Maneuverability
MEDINA, MN (November 1, 2011) - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a Workbench Caster Kit that delivers two-in-one mobility and stability, without the use of a braking system. Rockler's Workbench Caster Kit includes four, easy-spin, 2-3/8" urethane casters with a convenient foot-activated, lever-action lift mechanism that raises or lowers objects with the touch of a toe. Fully engaged, the four casters provide 3/4" of floor clearance, bringing total mobility to work benches weighing up to 400-lbs. Disengaged, the full weight of the workbench remains on the shop floor, providing a rock-solid work foundation.
"A common concern of most woodworkers is not having enough room in the shop", said Steve Krohmer, Rockler Vice President of product development. "The Workbench Caster Kit provides the freedom to effortlessly move a heavy workbench out of the way for cleaning, storage, maintenance, or for working on projects that require a generous amount of floor space. And unlike casters with braking systems that may incur slight movement even when locked, our casters, when disengaged, allow the object to sit directly on the floor."
Each caster is rated to hold up to 100-lbs., with a total set weight capacity of 400-lbs. The casters are ruggedly constructed out of durable steel and have a satin black finish.
The Rockler Caster Kit (43501) retails for $74.99. It is available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler's independent resellers, Rockler.com, or in the Rockler catalog.
