Cool tables. Where did you get your casters?

That’s a bit of a secret.

You can see that in one of the pictures the wheel is made of rubber, something you would find at any home store. One of the other wheels looks like its metal. I found this little blog that a person made about making vintage looking wheels. Their wheels and the wheels above look pretty much the same.

A bit more expensive but very cool looking

The 6” factory caster has a nice little cut out too giving it a bit more style. I am sure there are other manufactures that make reproduction cast iron wheels/ supports. That one company is a bit expensive and would not be economical for a person running a business.

Seeing that this is my first post here and I have no projects up I have no room to critique. However If a fellow woodworker asks for advise you should give it to them not be a smart ass. I guess your secret is out.

Hey there Mustangpower!

Thanks for the feedback. I didn’t realize that not giving out my source made me a smart ass. Yet…according to you…it does.

I guess as someone who runs a pretty successful woodworking business…I am inclined to protect certain sources for specialized materials. Especially since my source took me the better part of a year to find. But I won’t get into all of that because I don’t believe it concerns you.

People can look up casters all over the internet. INDUSTRIAL is way over priced. I have a really amazing source for reasonable priced casters. I buy in bulk also. Feel free to look over the internet and buy from whoever you want.

I’m not keeping iron casters a secret. Just MY source.

Before you get to calling someone you don’t know a smart ass…you should sit down…take a deep breath…and think things through from different perspectives. If you were in business…and you had a source for a product that took you a long time to find at the right price…would you really tell everyone about it? I don’t think so.
