Editor's Review: Choosing and Using Casters

by Roland Johnson

review date: July 26, 2012

My main workbench is a heavey beast with a couple of vises mounted topside, and a bench grinder and a bunch of other tools stored on the lower shelf. I frequently need to free up assembly space in my small shop, and dragging the bench across the floor is more than one man can muster. I needed a better way.

Locking casters weren’t a solution, as they often allow the bench to slide across the floor as I do heavy work up top, like handplaning boards. But with Rockler’s new workbench caster kit, I can lift the bench via the foot-bracket, or lever, on the casters, roll it to a new spot, and then drop it down. The bench doesn’t sit permanently on the wheels, so it stays put. The 2-3/8-in.-dia. urethane casters are rated for 100 lb. each and are large enough that they won’t get easily stopped by floor debris.

If you often need to move your bench, say if you work in a garage shop, these casters are a life (and back) saver.
