Thanks again, everyone!!I was even thinking of possibly using those lawnmower wheel axle mounts, those too are adjustable, but they don’t swivel. and then there’s the pallet jack principle, where the leg trolleys are forced down by rods operated by levers whenever the hydraulics are raised. Again, not castered. I’ve seen casters mounted on hinged boards, which flip down when you want to move your cabinet, but I’m not sure of the lateral stresses on the swivel joint when converting from stationary to moble operation. Are there any pneumatically operated lifts? Seems like a small pancake cylinder at each corner of a dolly might be sufficient for a cabinet not moved too often. Hmmm…4 eccentric circles, one at each corner, operated with a ‘farmer’s jack’ mounted horizontally… My head hurts!
