had to hold 1000lbs!
I purchased a 1920s pool table and it needs restoration. While it sits in my shop I needed a way to move it around without calling for help. So I built a cart and needed caster wheels that could handle almost 1,000lbs of antique slate. These wheels work great and are holding up well! I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Cart built to hold 3 pieces of 1.5" slate at about 280lbs. each!

I have used these 3” casters as well as the same style 4” casters, both fixed and locking swivel, on multiple projects and find them well able to handle weight without developing flat spots, for locking and unlocking with ease and for rolling heavy objects smoothly.

Great Locking Casters
I would highly recommend these heavy duty swivel, locking casters. I was looking for better 3" casters than I had on some of the light weight rolling carts I have and decided to try these Rockler casters. I am not disappointed. I would guess the cabinet weighs close to 200# with tools and accessories in it and you can push it extremely easy. I purchased the plate mount but they also have a stem mount if you need them.

Awesome heavy duty locking casters for my new flip top planer, spindle sander cabinet. Thumbs Up!

the right caster
All but my Powermatic table saw are on wheel casters just like the item shown above. They are heavy duty and confident of their ability to cary the heavy weight load of any cabinet or shop equipment in my small shop.

Locking wheels
I used these wheels on my workbenches ! Real handy to be able to move heavy benches around the shop for many reasons like dropped tools, cleaning the floor, big projects that require things to be spread out, etc. Very heavy duty.. I would buy again

Smooth operation, durable
Wheels have a nice solid feel to them. They don't spin loosely around the support, but they do spin smoothly. Locking mechanism stops both wheel rotation and prevents the casters from turning. Set of 4 is nicely holding up a miter saw support unit filled with wood and tools.

I have several casters from Rockler and the previous set 3 or the 4 casters disintegrated. I wanted a bigger, heavier duty caster. I already had two like this and wanted two more. The previous failure was likely the bench was too heavy.

BEST ANSWER: These casters support up to 240 lbs. each.
How do you install these casters on a heavy piece of furniture?
Mary S on Sep 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The only way I can think of is to lay the furniture on its side, which I have done several times. Be sure to mark and pre-drill the screw/bolt holes. On 3-inch wheels I used lag bolts. Smaller wheels should only require wood screws.
replacing casters on Shopfox moble base and would like to know measurement between holes to see if it will match?
louis s on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I too purchased these to replace the casters on my Shop Fox mobile base. The answer as to will they fit is yes and no. No, they will not fit directly since the swing on the swiveling casters is too great and they will not swing 360 degrees. I was able to solve the problem by leaving the caster housing on the Shop Fox, removing the old wheels, bushing, and axels and then using the new wheels and axles to replace them. They fit well only 4 bolts and it seems to work fine. I just wish that I had caught this before I had removed all 4 casters and replaced 3 of them!
Do these casters swivel 360 degrees?
Robert B on Jul 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hey Robert, they do swivel 360. I put them on a heavy metal 4 drawer cabinet I use for small hand tools. Work great.
what color are the wheels ?
Michael M on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Black. The color shown here on the web site is the same as mine.
For the 3 inch caster, how thick is the wheel at the hub, AND what is the diameter of the axle?
George L on Nov 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The wheel at the hub is 1 1/2" wide and the axle diameter is 3/8" as close as I can tell without taking it apart.
What size bolt should I secure these with? I want to use the 3-prong nut plates, but need to know what size to order.
