Larger wheels for the Egg Nests

Has anyone replaced the wheels on a medium Egg Nests with larger ones? I am thinking about doing this because these small castors make moving the egg a little hard. Thanks for your input.

    the walrus,[p]I have wanted to do that or just get a table. If you take the leap, please tell me how it goes![p]Smokey

    the walrus, I had intentions of posting a plan for a home brew nest for all sizes of BGE's.. I must do that soon. These would give a bigger base and eliminate tip over if they are snagged on a rock or mishandled. I too would use the hard rubber rollers with the threaded bolt. [p]For a simple rig, you might make a wooden (+) cross sufficient to allow the bolting of your present nest to the top. Use a miter cutjoint in the center to make the flat fit in the center of the (+). then a pair of screw's and glue to hold assemble the two pieces.
    (a wood shop can do it)
    If you add another 4 to six inches of wood past the present nest leg, you can then counter sink and fit a larger castor on each of the 4 ends.
    Just a suggestion...Have fun..C~W
