Great product

I bought a couple of sets when on offer - fitted one set to a wooden filing cabinet that I use to support my planet / thicknesses - these were easy to fit and work well
I have just fitted the second set to my Charnwood 650 cabinet saw. The main problem is that the button fixing needs to be approx 24 mm from the floor - just in line with the folded bottom edge of the panel! After a bit of thought, I dismantled the castors (2 13 mm bolts) and drilled out another bottom hole some 20mm higher than the existing one. I then made a template from 18 mm ply the full width of my saw cabinet and carefully drilled 5.5 mm holes through the template in the bolt positions. I clamped the template to my saw and drilled through the cabinet. I then used a tap to thread these holes for 6 mm bolts, fitted the castor frames using these bolts and fitted locknuts from inside the cabinet.
I repeated this on the far side of the saw and rebuilt the castors - a very neat solution.
The heavy cabinet saw can now be moved around with ease.

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.....
