I got a flat this morning on my table

We got about 4 inches of snow last night so after I got rid of the snow on the driveway I did like I always do and shovel the snow off the patio so I can get to my eggs. Much to my surprise as I was moving the table with my small and large one of the casters snapped causing the table to drop to one side. Fortunately I always pull the tables instead of pushing and I was able to catch and hold the table before a serious situation developed. The casters are 3 years old so check those casters before your table gets a flat.

    Good thing you did not have a derailment!

  • As it was I had to send out for the wrecking crew. I wonder if I'm wonder if the incident is going to be goverened by FRA rules? I guess I will be taken out of service and have to take the mandatory drug test??? :laugh:

    "Good catch" John! BTW was the caster one of those hard black rubber kind? Those really have a limited life and are subject to cold weather and little abuse! I used to have them on some of my shop equipment and they would just break in half.

  • The caster broke right at the swivel. I am guessing that being on a paver patio all the vibration when moving the table through the years finally effected the ball bearing seat. The caster snapped right at the ball bearing joint.

    For some reason I was envisioning a 14 lb. packer brisket (flat) sitting on your table waiting to be caressed for a few hours by your BGE but you actually had a flat (caster). Great save of a potential major disaster.
