need help finding a caster


Need help finding a height adjustable (leveling) swivelling, lockable caster.

I tried searching through mcmaster and grainger, but DAMN those catalogs are huge.

you didn't say what you are going to use the casters for, but what comes to mind as far as height ajustable is a set of scaffolding casters with the coarse thread legs-usually found with 6 or 8" wheels. can find a set used if you look around.

If you don't like huge catalogs I'm sure you will hate these people...

I would also be interested in the same thing. I plan to use shims to level my cart, but if an adjustable caster is available, that would be better.

Light duty 3"

Add a couple nuts and these could be used for leveling

try this:

was actually looking for my local caster vendor (Casters of Lubbock) and that was the only hit I came up with... there's a clickable map with a distributors in your state link somewhere in all that mess...
