« Part 2: Don't do this! Part 3 of Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet series Part 4: You're getting warmer »

These Woodriver casters are great, but (IMO) not suited for this project. They are very solid, easy to attach, and make even heavy objects easy to move in tight spaces. But there are two drawbacks for this application. First, you have to get down on your hands and knees and crank the dial to raise the post on all four legs in order to engage the wheel every time you want to move the table.

I have long given up on adjustable height rollers such as this. I’ve instead settled for getting my equipment set where I want and leaving it there. The only tool I have mobile anymore is my Ridgid TS3650. Even with it though, it doesn’t sit right in some areas of my shop without playing with it. My shop floor has more waves in it than the Pacific on a windy day.
I wish I could be more helpful. Sorry.
