Without a doubt the best looking looking and performing caster that I have run into. I purchased the casters based on how it looked in the catalogue and the reputation of Rockler. I guess you may say I took chance and was not disappointed in the least.

I used six of the swivel mount casters on a 6'x2-1/2' homemade base to a cabinet in which I store my LPs and CDs. There are more than 500 of each and the aggregate weight on the base exceeds one-half ton. Previous casters crumbled and gave out after but short use. These from Rockler have not only borne the weight but, on a carpeted surface, they nicely swivel and permit movement of the cabinet as needed.

After 15 years in the new garage, I purchased the fixed and swivel casters for my Table saw. The perfect fit for my shop, works great with a new 8' outflow table. The height of the caster was a concern but once they were installed....what a waste of 15 years!

These are great casters and I would have given them a 5 rating, but the specification says that the overall height is 4". After mounting two swivel plate casters, p/n 33868, I find that the total height is 4 1/8", not 4 inches.
I bought two to retrofit a 6 ft long workbench that I built over 10 years ago. This bench sagged about an eight of an inch, and I bought these to get the bench back to level. Now I will have to shim up the original four casters by 1/8 inch. I'm not pleased about that.

I used four of these casters on a shopmade router table cabinet, and would never use them again. Every single time I attempt to move the cabinet, the two wheels on the the side furthest away from the push/pull force always decide to set themselves at about a 30 degree angle from the direction I am trying to move the cabinet. The result is that I have to exert considerable sideways force to get the cabinet to travel the direction I want. This is very annoying.

I have used these in the past (both post style and plate mount)for making my bandsaw, drill press, and router table mobile so I can move them around the shop. They roll smoothly, lock firmly, and provide a stable base for these tools. They do add some height (around 3 1/2" to 4 1/2") to the tool depending on type(post or plate) and size of wheel so be sure to measure for finished height before buying.
