Rockler Workbench Caster Kit with Quick-Release Plates

Includes our Workbench Caster Kit for easy mobility without sacrificing stability, plus our Quick-Release Plates, which let you easily remove the casters to eliminate obstructions.
Item #
90% of 100

This set of four easy-spin 2-3/8'' urethane casters features a foot-activated lift mechanism that engages or disengages with the touch of your toe. Engage them to lift your bench 3/4'' off the floor for mobility, disengage them for stability while planing, pounding and chiseling. Each caster is constructed of durable steel and rated for 100 lbs.—that's 400 lbs. of total capacity with the 4-pc. set! Includes all mounting screws for easy installation.

Package includes a full set of Quick-Release Plates!

Our Quick-Release Plartes allow you to quickly remove your Workbench Casters so you can access all sides of your workstation without obstructions. Simply removing the pins and the casters slide out so 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. Includes hardware for mounting to a 3/4'' panel. Longer bolts may be required for thick workbench legs.

Works Great
Easy to attach.. worked exactly as it is supposed to work. I will buy additional accessory plates so I can easily remove the wheels and transfer them onto other tables.

Rockler Workbench Caster Kit with Quick-Release Plates
Love the casters and the quick-release plates. My only complaint has to do with the installation instructions and lack of needed nomenclature (especially for the unusual bolts that came with the q-r plates.) I ended up having to build a 3/4" "brace" for each side of the workbench and counter bore for the washers and nuts. Lots of glue and a bunch of #10 screws later and it all works. I have had to move this 250 lb. bench several times and the Caster Kit with quick-Release Plates makes that "chore" a breeze.
This is my completed woodworking workbench with installed Rockler Caster Set & Quick Release Plates.

work great
I have used them on my work table that weighs 200lbs and they have preformed very well for over 4 years. Being they worked so well, I have also placed them on craftsmen tool boxes that have use as carts with draws for my router table, miter saw, planner and my band saw.

Woodworking Experience:
Heavier steel than expected.
I decided to go with this set of casters when I finished my workbench and was completely pleased with how they work and roll when attached. I'm guessing my workbench weighs about 200lbs and on smooth concrete you can push it around with a finger. I wanted to have the capability to raise the workbench up four inches so I added some springs, to the casters, so that the wheels stay in the up position. That way, when you lift the workbench they stay up and don't get in the way when coming off of the 4x4s and back down to the floor height.

The idea is great, however it is easy to overload them. They caster assembly bends easily when they get overloaded.

I have a few work benches without casters. I wanted a solution where I could use one set of casters for multiple benches since I won't be moving them all at once.

What are the dimensions of the mounting plates on the caster themselves?
Jim M on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 3-1/2" x 2-1/8"
Are there instructions with the caster set? Or only with the quick release mounting plates?
Ward W on Aug 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: IIRC instructions are on the side of the box.
Can I get the mounting plates alone, I have the caster set?
Jeff S on Aug 29, 2017
What are the dimensions of the quick release plates and the height of the caster from from the top of it's plate to the bottom of the caster when in extended position?
rabbit on May 27, 2019
How long are the mounting bolts?
David on May 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The information and pictures on the website are incorrect. It comes with 8 1 1/4" long bolts for mounting. There are no screws included
will these casters plates also work with the adjustable plates?
evan f on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have this set of casters on my (very heavy) workbench, and it’s great. I’m afraid I don’t know what Evan is referring to as the adjustable ones. I searched the Rockler website for them and couldn’t find them. Tom
What size hole should I pre drill for the screws provided?
Kelley M on Aug 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are mounting the quick-release plates they require 1/4" through-holes.
