Workbench Casters
Casters work fine, seem to be of good quality. I was retrofitting though and did not account for the side mounting versus my existing bottom of the leg mounted casters and so now my bench is significantly lower than I want so will have to add significant spacers onto the legs to restore the bench height. Fairly priced for their complexity.

I bought these for a router cabinet/table that I just built and they are perfect, adding easy mobility to the unit. My shop floor space is a little funky, so the ability to move to is around as needed is a big issue. Very happy with this purchase.

Worth every penny, and more!
If you happen to have a work bench that you often say, "I sure wish I had a way to move it to another location" then you should consider these casters. I was skeptical at first because my work bench is extremely heavy. These casters worked like a champ and the bench glides around on the floor like it's on ice! They are actually harder to release than they are to raise, but not a chore by any means. My only regret is that I wish I had gotten these sooner. They are worth every penny spent, and then some! The quality is top notch as the bracketing is all made of steel, no plastic on these casters. The wheels seem to be of good quality, but only time will tell as to their durability. So far, I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Awesome Casters
These casters are very convenient. I also got the quick-release plates and that’s an extra space saving when you need to get other carts/tables close to each other. Totally recommend to get the casters and the plates.

The casters were easy to install and are quite an improvement on the casters I had on my work bench. The work bench with the stored tools weighs approximately 200 to 250 pounds. I move my work bench often between the garage and the driveway to cut down on noise and dust. I would purchase these again.

I recently built a fairly stout workbench. It is a great addition to my shop and I should have done it years ago, but I have a small shop and sometimes it's in the way. It is too heavy to just muscle it around. I needed casters that would allow me to raise the bench, move it easily out of the way and then set it back down on the floor. Problem solved.

Does anybody have any experience with the "tires" separating from the "rim"? Mine started to desolve in a million pieces, without having been overloaded or rolled through any type of chemicals.
A shopper on Apr 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Purchased a set for a bench at work in a chemical plant, have had them in use at least 4 years with no problems. when I have need of this type of caster on other portable equipment and tables I buy these have 4 or 5 sets now with no trouble.
Can I get Technical specifications for this? I want to know the size of the mounting plate and the "screw holes". I'm a draftsman for theatre and I'm specing these for a piece of rehearsal scenery, but I need to know where to drill bolt holes and how/where I should place framing to support the casters.
Wil D on Oct 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Plate Dim(X,Y) - (1.965in, 3.558in). 2 mounting holes, one centered at top and one centered at bottom, coordinate to follow. Coordinates(X,Y), reference pt is top left corner, (1.033in, 0.486in). Hole Dia(in) ~5/32 to 11/64.
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?

Can I replace the 2-3/8" urethane casters with pneumatic casters? I need this to be able to roll outside easily.
Brian N on Sep 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe you could do this I find the casters from rockler to be just fine , when I pull my saw out of the garage onto asphalet driveway, no problems.
These have a working load of 100 lbs. each, correct? So a 400 lb bench could be supported by 4? Is there anything that might have a larger working load?
Erik H on Sep 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It does have a load rating of 100 lbs per caster or 400 lbs with all four. However, when you raise the workbench off the floor to a rolling position, you are putting all 400 lbs on the first caster you raise. For me, this was enough to cause the caster to fail and my workbench only weighs about 250 lbs. I would use a heavy-duty locking caster rated for more weight if I were you. I will be switching out my casters this summer.
Does anyone know of similar hardware that allows attachment to a horizontal member, say a 2 by X piece?
David on Sep 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Look on the box. It gives the specs for aa 3/4 inch rise but you can cut it down to give a 1/4 inch rise if you are dealing with a flat smooth floor
I want to mount these on the inside of the legs. I trip over enough stuff now as it is! I have exactly 6 inches from the floor to the underside of the crosspiece on my workbench. I know that is enough space to mount these. But will 6 inches allow the lift mechanism to come up high enough to engage the wheels? Will it be a real pain to 'step on' that lift mechanism, trying to slide my foot on there with only 6 inches clearance?
User on Nov 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You need to get the mounting plates set. Than you will be able to remove and replace the casters at will. I had the same problem, the casters lock into place on the plates.
Can I mount these on the inside of the bench to keep from tripping over them?
corey on Nov 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not. The only issue I see is getting at the lever to raise and lower the casters. it can require a lot of pressure to operate the level if you have a heavy bench.

Rockler Quick-Release Workbench Caster Plates, 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
My garage floor is so unlevel, to get out feed table level with table saw there is a 1 3/4" gap from bottom of bench to floor on 1 side and 1" gap on other side (currently using leg levelers). Will these still work to lift out feed table of leg levers and roll around?
Trevor O on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They lift about 3/4" -- my floor is also uneven, so once I put my workbench in place, I sometimes need a wedge to level it. You could also use adjustable feet but it was recommended to me not to use them on a a work bench because of the pounding it might take.
What material are the wheels made out of?
Brian S on Aug 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The wheels are made of urethane, as mentioned in the description. I have not been using these long, but I just installed them on a work bench, and the seem to work fine. I don't intend to move the bench all that often so I hope they will wear well.

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.
Would these survive being stored outdoors in the weather? We need an outdoors mobile ramp on the blacktop that can be set solidly down after locating.
Ed C on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have had these attached to an outdoor work bench for two years now and have had no issues. I am in Los Angeles though and we don't have very extreme weather.
Would it be possible to attached these to the bottom of a table saw that has metal legs? Looking to use casters to make my table saw mobile. Jet 708492K model.
Logan J on Dec 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. I just did it. If the legs are not vertical you may need some angle spacer blocks (I just did it), then drill holes into the blocks, then into the legs. I used bolts, of two different lengths, to attach mine. Works like a champ!
my work bench is made out of an old bowling lane It weighs about 200 lbs will these casters support it??
Paul P on Dec 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I would also get the removable acssesory, so when you get your work bench where you want you can take the caster off and your not stub your toes on them, make shure you attach them a solid place on your bench.
How can I keep the casters from rolling under the legs? When engaging they will, sometimes, go underneath the workbench legs.
A Regular Guy on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Good Question! I have had problems with this myself. To alleviate some of the problem, I installed the wheel brackets 1/2" higher on the leg than the instructions indicate. This still gives you 1/2" clearance under the legs when the wheels are locked and stops the wheels from curling under in most rolling situations. As soon as you lift up on the workbench, though, the wheels still try to roll under.
I have a set of these casters and they lift my 300 pound sjobergs workbench just fine. But when it comes time to lower the bench back to the floor, I have to use a Fastcap jack to flip them up. I can't do it with steel-toed boots, It would be nice if there were a way to softly lower the bench, so its weight doesn't cause it to slam down to the floor once the "flipper" is disengaged. Does anyone else have this problem or a solution?
Robert P on Sep 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes they require quite a lot of pressure to disengage but I made me a release rod out of 3/8 inch rod with a T handle and hook that does it fairly ease while standing. Mine are on a 400lb. work bench. Makes a little ruchus though.
So is it 100lbs per caster or in total for all 4? I have a 300+ Lbs desk that I want to mount these casters to. The desk is heavy and is made of particle board. Not to mention I will be also adding tools on to the desk as well making the weight significantly greater. For my solution can someone suggest another product if these casters dont work please? My side panels are 1 1/4" wide and I haven't found any u shaped brackets with casters to work.
Scott C on Feb 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can always modify your table and make your own set of lifting casters. Norm Abram has a video on a modern assembly table for New Yankee Workshop that goes over how to do it. I would suggest beefing up the areas where the casters are going to attach. I have has trouble using the casters in 3/4 in baltic birch plywood and had to double the thickness to make the casters works.
Can these casters be attached to metal? I have an older model of a Delta saw that's quite heavy; I was thinking of bolting the casters to the saw base.
Rocco C on May 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use them for the same application. I applied them to a 40 year old radial arm saw. They work well for that. I used one existing hole on each leg and had to drill one more They allow me to move the saw around my shop when in use and push it in the corner when not in use. My shop is actually my garage.
What is the width of the caster wheels? I assume the wheel dimension of 2 3/8 is a diameter?
SoCalNative on Jan 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought my casters in December of 2017 and measured one of the wheels for yo. It's 1-1/16" wide (wheel only).
Can I use 4" casters instead of the supplied 2 3/8" ones? I need to move and lift a 200lb electric piano off the ground and maneuver it to gigs.
Craig G on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: if design is similar to the castor supplied it would work but top mounting hole would be closer to 6.25 " from bottom of leg
(prefigure using right angle for guide) (wheel clearance of lowered lever arm the only restriction)
Are these suitable for a 10" Rockwell Unisaw and extension table? Or are they too meek?
Guswah on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These casters have a load rating of 100 lbs each, with a total load rating of 400 lbs for the set. If your Unisaw is within that limit you're ok - check with Rockwell to be sure if you don't know your saw wt. That said, these casters are heavy duty and well made. I have them on my work bench which is made out of a 3" thick maple top, 24" x 72". It's pretty heavy but not 400 lbs.
I just purchased a Powermatic pm 1000 table saw. I'd like to use the Rockler workbench casters to make this saw mobile. Are the casters heavy duty enough for the job?
Miles B on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I built a large heavy wooden workbench with storage underneath for tools & equipment which I estimate weighs in at least 300 pounds in total. These casters make it very easy to move anywhere in the shop and I've had no problem with them.
what is the width of the bracket - or what is the minimum width of the table legs?
Reinhard B on Oct 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The part of the bracket that rests on the leg is 49mm wide. The "arms" that extend out add a few millimeters on each side, but, again, the part on the leg is only 49mm wide.

If you don't mind the bracket extending out past the leg, the screw holes are centered on the bracket, so you can actually get away with a much smaller leg if needed.
will it roll over carpet? I have my work area carpeted
Charlotte M on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I really can't say for sure because my shop floor is concrete but the lathe that I use them with is quite heavy and it rolls with very little effort. With the size of the wheels I would think that they will be okay with a very short napped carpet. Good luck.
How heavy is the product?
Derk T on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The components are made from nice-thick metal which make them heavier than your typical caster - I couldn’t tell you exactly how heavy - maybe 2lbs each??
i have a delta belt /disc sander will these hold up to 300lbs?
James N on Oct 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes I put them all of my work benches . They made it easy to move the whole shop area around to make a small shop into a large space so I can use the table saw to cut up the plywood. In fortunately I lost everything to the wild fire on paradise. Had to relocate to my RV. I built a landing and steps for easy access to the RV I put then on so I can mow it out of the way when needed. I highly recommend them
I have an old craftsman cast iron table saw on a steel base. Think this would be able to hold the weight of the table saw? I have no idea how much it weighs.
Joshua C on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have two sets of these casters, one set for a workbench I made that weighs 350-400 lbs much heavier than a saw even with a cast iron top. And the other I've used for a cabinet that holds many different portable tools the top of which holds my planer. The casters work great for both of these uses.
I have a nine foot Sjobergs bench that weighs 300 pounds. Would you recommend these for occasional use?
Rob B on May 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes I would but only for moving the bench , my bench is lighter but not by much and I never leave the wheels in the down position .. I think they are GREAT and have featured them in my YouTube videos on Protect Your DIGITS creations... I hope this helps you in your decision....
