« Part 5: Final Assembly... Part 6 of Easy Shop Table - Planer Table series Part 7: Final Thoughts... »

Well, my casters came in from my local Woodwerks store. Just as in previous entries, the casters are the most expensive part of this project. The casters I have been using lock both the wheel and the pivot as well. Without the double lock, when you push on the table, the pivot will spin – and you can move the table – even when locked. Let’s install the casters next:

Below: These are the casters (with double lock mechanism)

Below: Use the bottom of the caster to locate and drill the holes…

Above: I used 1 1/4” sheet metal screws to install the casters

Below: Installing the first caster.

Below: The four castors are installed…time to put this table to work!

Below: The new table in its final form ready to use.

The final blog entry for this project is coming later today with some final notes and pictures…
