Woodworking Experience:
Best of the best
Best locking caster design I’ve seen. The lock levers are the easiest to operate. I only wish you made them with larger diameter wheels for use on heavier equipment and/or less than even terrain.

Excellent product and value.
Very smooth rolling wheels. Table saw stays put when the wheels are locked. It solved a major safety issue from the old caster wheels

H L on Dec 17, 2019
Going to use these for my table saw. Current ones move all over when trying to use the table saw, creating a safety hazard. Hopefully these will stabilize the table saw better by not allowing it to move while using it but also provide mobility when not in use.

HM M on Jan 31, 2018
My downsized shop requires previously stationary tools to be rolled to the side. These castors fit my bolt-down vintage Delta band saw base without modification and appear to provide a positive lock for both wheel and swivel movement and have a more than adequate load rating.

is there a difference between item number 34000 and item number 47034 casters other than the 3/8" stem and stem 1/2"??
Marty on Aug 23, 2017
i would like to install these wheels on my band saw which weighs approx. 290 pounds will this work for me?
Stephen on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they should. I have them on my jointer planer which is heavy cast with no problem. They are rated at
110 lbs each, so that would be 440 lbs for 4.
how long is the stem on this caster? If it's shorter than I am looking for, is there a way to get a longer stem or lengthen it?
Craig E on May 3, 2018
Do they work on the rockler-router-table-steel-stand?
Christopher E on Nov 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, extremely well. I installed them on my Rockler router table, table saw and drill press stand. They are well worth the investment. Happy routing!
how many in the set?
Alwyn C on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Four. They roll great on cement slab floors and the locks work very well.
I want to mount these in a wooden leg on a chopping block. Are there 3/8" inserts that I could mount in the bottom of the leg?
JOE B on Dec 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure about what look you're after or how much the unit weight but if you're going to attach it to a wood I suggest you use something that attaches with any screws or bolts such as -
4" Polyurethane Casters, Swivel (Plate Mount)
want locking casters for a 250 lb kitchen island and don't know how to figure out if these would work?
A shopper on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used the casters for a 10" radial saw and 12" table saw. However, I used 3/4" plywood to build a base and drilled holes to feed the stem and secure the nut. I don't think this type of caster meets your need. The casters are solid and when locked the platform is secure. You might look at the side mounting casters to meet your requirements. They have an "L" bracket to allow securing the caster to the side of the item.
Do you have 1/2 inch stem ?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Rockler item number 47034 is a 1/2 inch stem caster with the same double-locking action as this product.
Is this for outdoor use, especially in Coastal Regions?
Claire O on Jun 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The casters have hard rubber wheels, and plated metal hardware to prevent rusting. They should be just fine for outdoor use, but frequent lubrication (WD40) should be used.
are there 4 casters in a set?
Mike H on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, and they work great. I've got sets on my drill press stand, table saw and router table. Locking mechanism is secure and craftmanship is what you would expect from Rockler, excellent.
Total Lock 3/8'' Stem Casters,Can I get replacement wheels ?
steve w on Oct 10, 2017
I am not sure if Rockler sells replacement wheels for the 3/8" stem casters or not or if you can even install replacement wheels on them. I've got two sets that I've been using for almost three years now and the casters are still in great shape.
Hope that helps answers your question.
Darrell S.
Do these casters come in a plate mount version?
Stephen W on Aug 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No you would have to go to a 3" caster. The stem casters are 2 1/2" Go to search and key in Swivel casters and pick which ones you would like, they have several types and all are rated at 110 lbs. but watch some are just pairs and some are individual.

Can you confirm that these will fit a Jessem Rout R table stand? I see a few people saying it does here but I just wanted to check as I'm in the UK so can't realistically return them if they don't fit. Thanks.
daveychainsaw on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not familiar with the table you are asking about. In my application I had to drill larger holes in the bottom of the legs. With the other one I mounted a piece of plywood to the bottom of the table and put the casters in it
Can these be mounted to 5’ tall 3’ wide wood storage cabinet? The sides are 3:4” thick 28” wide and bottom is an inch from bottom dado in.
Harold F on Aug 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend these for a wood storage cabinet. don't think they could hold the weight. I would recommend the workbench casters or the 4 or 5 inch casters that bolt to the bottom of the cabinet.
What is the diameter of the wheels?
Justin B on Dec 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 2 3/8 "
what material are the wheels made from? are they non-marring?
Dan E on Dec 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do not know the exact material but I have used them on hardwood floors and concrete floors and have seen no marring or material marks.
Will these work for Delta Contractor table saws? Thanks, Tom
Tom B on Dec 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These casters need to be inserted into a 3/8 inch threaded receptacle in the foot of the table. I do not know about the Delta table saw, but they are excellent in use on my router table.
casters come with locking nuts to fit the stems?
Marty on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The casters come with standard nuts with a lock washer.
what is the height of the caster from the floor to the base of the cabinet?
bvz2000 on Nov 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This will raise an item 3-5/8" off the floor.
