I built this workbench about two years ago. It has three sheets of 3/4” MDF on top and four full extension drawers full of this and that. The workbench probably weights close to 250 pounds. I gave up long ago trying to move it. I saw this caster set advertised in the latest Rockler circular and thought I would give it a try.
Everything was super easy to install with all screws, nuts and lock washers provided.
This allows you to maneuver your heavy work bench with ease. This set of four easy-spin 2-3/8’’ urethane casters feature a foot-activated lift mechanism that engages or disengages with the touch of your toe. You can engage them to lift your bench 3/4’’ off the floor for mobility, disengage them for stability. Each caster is constructed of durable steel and rated for 100 lbs. —that’s 400 lbs. of total capacity with the 4-pc. set! It includes all mounting screws, nuts and lock washers for easy installation.
My workbench now rolls easly with one hand to anywhere in the shop. I can now sweep behind and under as well as get all those pencils that end up behind the workbench. I also now have the flexibility to easily reposition this work surface to allow for a larger footprint for glueups or painting. I still have levelers under each leg because my concrete floor hates me.
If you are looking for an easy way to move those bulky wooden cabinets or benches, this may be for you. A very sturdy product for $74.99 for a set of four….................
