Well I guess you get what you pay for. AT $16 one shouldn’t complain much but placed and a some what light cabinet you would think that they would work just a little better than they do. I got them because that would fit my application but I didn’t expect them to be as bad as they are. I can barely move the router table with them installed. I think that they are just torquing under and rubbing but the way they are made there isn’t much that could be done . Time to re-think…

HF has some casters that just screw on the bottom. They’re blue, works good enough on my BS.

I use a lot of HF casters. Cheap and never had a problem.

And.. I have a mantra… after using lots of different casters. Anything under 4” wheels will be stopped by an extension cord or a thick lump of wood shavings, not to mention a small wood chip. 4” or greater seems to ride up over a lot of stuff. The bigger the better.

Larger wheels are the best for the reason previously stated
