Table

edited 2:19AM in EggHead Forum
I have a two eggs in a wooden table. The table has 4 fixed wheels. It is still to heavy to move. Looking to change two of the wheels to swivel wheels. Does anyone have any suggestions of where to get wheel strong enough to hold all of the weight. My patio is stamped concrete so the wheels can not be too small or they get caught in the grooves.

    Home Depot and Lowe's have a large assortment of swivel casters that are rated up to a few hundred pounds apiece. The largest I have seen there are either 2.5" or 3" diameter.

    I'm sure Ace or other hardware stores also carry them.

    Any suggestions as to going with pneumatic or solid?
  • If you're going to keep it on the concrete, I would stick with the solid wheels for durability, but if you plan on rolling it into or through the yard, I would consider the pneumatic.

    On concrete all year, however I do put it in the yard once a year when I reseal the patio.
  • If you live near a Northern Tool they have a great selection of these. I'd just make sure you get something for outdoor use.
  • If the two fixed wheels to remain are 8" or more then I'd say you're good with replacing one end with casters.

    If not, I'd get some 8" wheels on one end and big casters on the other. I think pneumatic is a good idea as they will never develop any flat spots from sitting too long in one spot.

    My fixed wheels aren't pneumatic and after 3+ years they're doing fine.
  • I would recommend Grainger.

    Just search for "Caster" and you should be able to find a suitable heavy duty caster for your table. They're not cheap but they will have the right thing.
