Are there any sources for polyurethane casters that are less expensive than woodworking stores such as Rockler, Woodcraft?

Harbor Freights. I have mixed results. Their heavy duty versions have worked well for me but the light ones broke more easily than I expected.

I bought mine from Hartville. They were less expensive than either Rockler or Woodcraft and, so far, they work great. I started a thread about this very topic a while back and there were some links to some on-line sources that were very reasonable. I went with Hartville because I’d done business with them and like the company.

Thanks, guys.

Dave: I remember reading your thread, but couldn’t find it so I posted this query.

It looks like Rssv is a go to guy on this subject.

EVERYTHING in my shop has wheels as I have seasonal configurations for my equipment. The bench gets moved closer to the door in the warm weather, closer to the wood stove in the winter. So, I buy castors of all types from GRIZZLY. They’re well priced, they deliver quickly and I find them to high quality especially the steel. They have about a great selection too. My advice is to get a larger diameter than you think you’ll need everytime you buy a set. Oh, the rubber ones are actually tire rubber so they smell for awhile like a tire store but…..small price to pay.

Good Luck!
