workbench castors

Excellent quality, but a little bit tricky to mount, however ...

I've read the reviews including the mounting suggestions and would like to add a few comments. Mind you, English is not my native tongue but I'll give a it shot.

If you mount the casters as suggested by Jim Beach, i.e. 22 mm from the bottom, the lift is approx 19mm, which is in essence more than enough to get your bench off the floor. But when lowered down and with the wheel underneath the plate, there is hardly any free space between the wheel and the floor - which might be a problem as suggested by other reviewers here. With the wheel pointed In the other direction (180 degrees turn) the space between the wheel and the floor is approx 7 mm so that's okay,. The reason for this is that the pivot point en the center of the wheel are not level, and change in function of the position of the wheel, hence the 7mm and 0 mm space.
It's very simple to overcome this by changing the 22 mm position to 23 or 24 mm - you will still have 18 or 17 mm lift which should be fine.

I found these casters really great, well build and superb quality for money. I can really recommend these.

Lack of obvious information.

The only documentation with these shows an exploded view of the castor and even the weight limit, but not the fundamental information of how high up the bench leg to make the screw holes. As the castor is heavy and freely rotating, it's far from easy to establish the best position even by fitting one to a test piece. For some reason the advice given above to put the lower screw hole 22mm up from the leg base seemed a millimetre or two too low for me. The total movement of the lever controlling the wheel is quite limited so the position is crucial. Not the easy fitting job I anticipated.

Wheely Good!

I work in a rather confined space and have been considering these for a while. At the current offer price, I decided that they would be a worthwhile investment - and they are. Quality is decent and at the offer price they are good value. Can't say much about the features, since they only do one thing
After a bit of thinking and fiddling on the bench fitting was simple. I removed the bolt holding the castor bracket in place, in order to get direct access to the screw holes, cut a scrap of ply to 136 x 75 and using the backplate as a template with the top lined to the top of the ply, marked and drilled the holes. Viola! a template. Resting it on the floor, place it where you want to mount the wheels. Drill pilot holes, screw the plate into position and refit the bolt. In around 45 minutes I was moving the bench and giving some spiders a bit of a fright. The bottom screw does all the work so it does not matter if the top one is going into end grain.

Great mobile solution

pros: Very robust and practical; following Jim's advice ( bottom hole 22mm from bottom leg and a block of wood to get the right height) it was time consuming but quite easy to install them and making mobile a 115kg bench.
cons: Their price, is high and it is very disappointing for Axminster that the 8 screws (a cost of £0.50-0.70) to mount the castors were not included in the set.....

Castor Bench Wheels - Used on an Axminster Hobby Sawtable

After a bit of searching and seeking advice from woodworkers forums etc., I bought these to allow mobility of the previously purchased Hobby saw table - I was aware that the castors would normally need a vertical surface to be fixed to, but on the metal stand for the saw table, I manufactured two mounting jigs that bolted to the front (lead-in) side of the table and back (lead-out) side of the legs that had a 5 degree plate welded to it, this provided the vertical surface for fixing. The castors are working admirably, allowing me to move this heavy piece of equipment around easily - placing it where required. The versatility of the castors fitted 'all-round' rather than other solutions where the equipment moves on two castors plus two fixed (in-line) wheels means that I don't need to faff about manoeuvring it. The cam mechanism obviously allows the saw to sit firmly on the floor when in use.
