Great casters

Gnugs Posted September 28, 2014
Two sets -- Used on a heavy workbench and a homebuilt lathe stand. The stand scoots into a really tight space perfectly. Works great. The workbench was impossible to move until got the casters on. It's still heavy to adjust the casters but it's possible and once up, it moves easily.
Will probably buy 2 more sets if they go back on sale -- works way better than the casters on the rectangular steel bases that are being sold.

Generally Works Well - Recommended

Other's have commented about the need to create an accurate template for drilling the holes. This I highly recommend. Also, I replaced the mounting screws that were provided with 1/4" x 2" lag bolts.

I mounted these castors on a heavy hardwood workbench that weighs 400 lbs. Note that the castor set is rated for 600 lbs. With the 400 lbs. load however it is not easy to flip the castors up with your toe. I use a 2"x2" by 30 stick of wood as a lever to release them. To engage them I need to stand with weight on my heel. I have them set so that they raise the bench about 1/2' when extended. When on the wheels the bench rolls very smoothly.

I highly recommend these, as long as you can get to them easily and are willing to use a homemade release tool if they are mounted on a heavy item.

Great!

Used them this time instead of locking casters as I needed this bench build to be solid unless moved. They worked great.
