Product Information:

Double brake locks both wheel and swivel rotation with the touch of a toe. Sold individually.

Put your entire shop on wheels! Load rating for each caster is 300 lbs. Easy rolling, non-marring, polyurethane tires will not "flat spot" during long periods of remaining stationary. Swivel and wheel ride on ball bearings for smooth rolling and turning. Double brake locks both wheel and swivel rotation with the touch of a toe. Unlike cheaper casters, which only lock the wheel and allow the supported load to move around as the caster rotates on its base, these provide a rock solid base. Comes with 1/2" Threaded Spindle.

  • Using Casters In The Woodshop - There's really not much limit on what you can make mobile with casters, except your imagination.
  • GO MOBILE - Few of us ever admit to having “enough” tools and machinery, but sooner or later, we realize that it’s possible to own one too many. Finding parking spots for those most-needed machines, benches, stands, and materials in a crowded garage or basement can take the thrill out of making sawdust.

    • I Used These On My Oneway

    Comments about 3" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 1/2" Threaded Spindle :

    I was too cheap to buy the factory casters for my Oneway 1224. These worked great, only downside is you have to re-tap the threads of the feet from the funky metric sides to 1/2"-20. This only took a few mins. Even if you have to go to the hardware store to buy a 1/2 - 20 tap, it is cheaper than the factory wheels and likely they are better quality. You certainly will have more future choices with this thread size.

    Comments about 3" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 1/2" Threaded Spindle :

    I have bought several of the wheels from WC and the other woodworking store. I've found that the quality of these for surpass the big box store options. Maybe some from Tacoma screw are on par but you'd be hard pressed to find a better wheel. I've used these (8) to create a mobile base for my cabinet saw (600Lbs) and just bought 4 more for my base that I'm building for my new PM1500. I like these wheels because they are well built and they lock the swivel and the wheel roll and are very smooth. I will be putting all of my larger tools on these (of varying size based on weight reqs)even though some tools (PM 209HH) comes with wheels built in they don't allow you to pivot the tool in its own space. Same with the common mobile bases offered by all the manufactures. Ya, they can be a little spendy if you're comparing them to the cheapest wheels you can find, but the quality is there and you only have to buy them once. Imagine trying to lift your heavy tool to replace the cheap caster that broke. They often go on sale if $ is a blocker so just wait and buy a bunch. You'll be thankful you got these.

    I have used these casters for many custom mobile machine bases and moving dollies. I was sick of junk casters and these were a major step up for reasonable money.

    Put wheels on an old 12" Bellsaw Thickness Planer with an older 5 hp motor. Both weighing approx 250 pounds. Rolls with ease and locks in place. Great wheels, will buy more as I see the need. I will not waste my time on big box wheels any more.

    • Replaced factory casters

    Comments about 3" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 1/2" Threaded Spindle :

    I replaced the factory made casters on my 20 year old [...] Craftman Radial Arm Saw. The old factory casters never worked well. They struggled under the weight of the saw. These new casters easily mounted in the holes for the leveling pads and now the saw rolls around my garage easily. I find that I am using this tool more often now because it is so easy to roll it out of the corner. I wish I had made this change years ago. Great upgrade to my Radial Arm Saw!

    Comments about 3" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 1/2" Threaded Spindle :

    I purchased a set from Woodcraft about 2 years ago for my router table. I pull the table out about 3 feet for use each time. Within one year of purchase the polyurethane tire on one wheel broke off from the wheel and 6 months later two more broke (the 4th caster has cracks in it). The table is well within the load limits of the casters and it is on smooth concrete. I am about to replace them but will avoid this type of wheel+tire.

    Comments about 3" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 1/2" Threaded Spindle :

    At first these seem a bit pricey, unless you can score them on sale, but after trying them you won't be dissapointed. I bought my first set to try with my table saw, then immediately went back and bought sets for the rest of my tools and work bench. My shop space is limited so I like everything to be mobile. These roll and pivot super smooth, lock securely, and don't flat spot from staying in one place for extended periods in a hot garage. Excellent product!

    I use these wheels to make my wood lathe movable. They lock well to stabilize the lathe and roll smoothly over my concrete floor. I used swivels on all four legs to allow easy steering through my shop from storage to work area. Altogether a good product.
