Our Quick-Release Workbench Caster Plates let you remove your Workbench Casters (#43501, sold separately) by simply removing the caster bracket pins. This means the caster levers won't protrude and interfere with your movement around the bench. If your bench has an overhang, you can also store items such as a shop vacuum under the overhang without obstructions. With your bench, table or power tool stand in the desired spot, just lower it with the foot levers, remove the pins, and the casters slide out laterally. Includes hardware for mounting to 3/4" panel. Powder-coated steel. Longer bolts may be required for thick workbench legs.

Excellent product. I have a small shop and had to mount my table saw on castors for space. I did not want to use the normal ones with locks that are not reliable these allow me to have a firm footing when I am working but easily raise the stand to move.

the casters are good, but these make them great!
There are at least two advantages to using these with the workbench casters: they remove a tripping hazard from the shop floor, and they allow you to use the same set of casters on more than one tool or bench. These are absolutely solid, easy to install, and easy to use. If your workbench legs are thicker than 3/4" you'll have to buy longer machine screws, but these are (or should be) standard hardware store items.

Caster plates
I bought a couple sets of these and will buy more. They are easy to install. Also, the casters are easy to put on and take off the equipment and you won't have wheels on the equipment once it is in place. I love em!

useful, easy to use and install.
even thought it has been very expensive to ship them to France, I am very happy of those caster plates to be fitted on my woodwork bench. as I have a small place to woodwork, the fact to remove/install my casters on the plates within seconds fulfills totally my need. Thanks for this product.

Caster Plates
These plates were the perfect addition to my casters. I had to shim them out a bit to fit the legs on my workbench. I will be purchasing additional plates to make my other heavy benches and tables easier to move for cleaning in my garage/shop.

Avoid Tripping
The quick release plates make it very easy to remove the casters when the equipment weight is not on them. We use the casters on seldom used equipment that does not have much room around it when in use. Taking the wheels off prevents hitting the wheels when walking around the machine.

Great Product
These plates will save a lot of money by not having to buy multiple sets of wheels or saving lots of time by not having to bolt and unbolt the wheels when you need to move multiple items.

Works well for being able to remove or place as needed
I have a small shop and I don’t always keep my bench in the same location and will rearrange things to make room for a particular project need. I don’t like to have the rollers always protruding because a project may take several months before I rearrange again, and it’s a nuisance to have the rollers on. This solved everything for me giving me the option to add it remove them - built out of steel, they work nicely - my bench isn’t light - i’d guess 400 lbs and I haven’t had any issues

Having the quick release plates on the special bed platform will prevent a tripping hazzard when not needed. The platform will be finished and having just the plates exposed will be nicer to look at. Adding the casters will be quick to install when needed

I need 6 caster / mounting plate combinations. Do I have to buy 8 sets?
Larry H on Feb 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are 4 in a set, so 2 sets would give you 8 casters and/or mounting plates.
When the casters are in the deployed position how high is the table elevated off the ground based upon the measurements found here on the Rockler site for mounting the hardware?

Rockler Workbench Casters, 4 Pack
BEST ANSWER: If you need longer screws to go through the wood there is no problem, use the length you need to go all the way through the wood with about 1/2 inch to spare, this is the amount you need for the thickness of the quick release and for the nut. As for height, The box tells you to drill the holes 2 inches from the floor, and the second hole 4 inches above the floor, you should center the holes on the leg (side to side. I hope I have helped you
Have you tried this lifts on a Delta Table saw mobile base?

for the two units. John
Can they be used on a metal table saw stand?
Rbarr on Aug 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but you'll probably have to drill some holes in the legs, and get some 1/4" -20 bolts.
Has anyone tried mounting larger casters to this set? I have to mount it higher than the 2" that these specify. My requirement is that the first screw must be at least 2 5/8" off the floor. I'm thinking of putting a 3" caster on the mounts to raise the lower bolt for the quick release plate to 3 1/8". Any thoughts?

BEST ANSWER: I had a similar problem and just mounted the caster set a little higher. It works good but just leaves your stand or whatever a little closer to the floor. Measure your clearance and just allow for that to allow space to move.
Will extra casters increase load capacity accordingly, eg; 4 casters = 400lbs, 8 casters = 800lbs ?
Moggy on Jan 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Short answer would be yes. I would count on the load capacity of an individual caster to be 100 pounds.

Without knowing the configuration and load distribution of the device that you want to move, I should add a cautionary note:

The aggregate load supported by the 8 casters could be 800 pounds. Your individual casters should be mounted so that each caster will constantly be receiving its share of the load during transport. In the case where you want to double up and locate two (or more) casters close to each other, you must mount them so that they are properly aligned so that the individual casters are sharing their load.
Will the Rockler plates work with the WoodRiver work bench caster set?
Patrick K on May 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will. I think they are the same manufacturer, just different box/brand. It worked for me.
Is it possible to use screws, instead of the "bolts," to mount the caster plates?
Ragpad on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For those interested I found that flat head #14 screws of your desired length fit the best and don't interfere with sliding the casters into the plate.
I bought your caster set 3 or 4 years ago for a bench I was building but ended up not building it. I would like to use them now and wonder if they will work with the plates?
Tom L on Aug 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would think they should, but it does depend on which casters you purchased. Rockler has a return process if they don't work.
Does using the quick-release caster plates lower the load rating of the casters?
Denean S on Mar 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I did not read that in the literature and I would guess the answer is no, the quick release brackets are the same material as the casters so I would guess there would be no reduction.
For Item #: 53004 does it come with caster wheels or i have to buy the wheels separately ??
Hari T on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the Workbench Caster Plates do not come with caster wheels, they come separately. However, you can buy multiple sets of the Caster Plates and only one or two sets of the caster wheels and save yourself some money, that is if you don't mind swapping the caster wheel sets from unit to unit.
I already have the Powertec 17000 version of workbench casters installed on a bench and wondering if these Rockler Quick-Release Plates would be compatible. Has anyone tried matching these on an install?
monsenor on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used them on a bench that I made, they should work
I would like to maybe use it as method to go from the kitchen island to a regular dining table. Will it for work for this? Can the structure be in stable position even when on casters? How many inches will it go down when the casters are put to the side? Thanks!
Natalia P on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When you put the castes down it will raise the table approximately 1/2". I have installed these on 3 different tables in my shop. I generally leave the casters down so I can easily roll the tables around. The casters are very stable in the down position.
Can these be mounted to angled steel legs? I want to use them on my Performax 22-44 sander and Belsaw planer, both of which have steel bases with angled legs.
