I am in the process of building a router table/cabinet. I ordered some heavy duty 4” casters from Grizzly figuring they would be about right but I think they are way overkill. These things are massive and HEAVY DUTY, I wouldn’t be surprised if you couldn’t roll around a small car on these things, well maybe not but they are some tough motor scooters. For about $10 you can’t beat a 4” locking swivel caster in my opinion

I think I will save these for something a little larger. If I did, what size would best fit my needs? Im guessing about a 3”? Not really sure. There are so many different types of wheels I don’t know what to choose from.

I would like to stick with Grizzly, which ones would y’all suggest?

I’d get this one: 3 inch caster with brake.

I agree with Joe, excellent caster for the money.

The ones you have pictured will be real good on a concrete floor if you are moving a safe…

Ok, thanks guys! Just ordered 4 non threaded 3” swivel casters with brakes. Thanks for your input and you should see them soon in a project (hopefully soon, I’ve to busy to get into the shop much but I shouldn’t complain).
