grouch OneMoreTime:

I have the center sections of a pair of space-saver wheels on one end of my rotisserie on some junk front stub axle carriers from a front-wheel drive car. I just drilled out where the rim was welded. The centers of these are pretty heavy steel and look like extra large casters. They roll nicely on concrete but not well at all on gravel. I'll have to swap them for tires *and* wheels, as you suggest, as each end of the rotisserie clears the doorway.

Haven't added any to the other end yet -- haven't decided whether I should use front spindles so they can steer or rear ones for fixed. Thought about just temporarily attaching the rear-end from the Olds to the rotisserie, cobbling a starter motor and pulleys to it, and letting it push itself outside and back. Hey, that rear-end is useless until I get the frame out of the rotisserie, anyway.

Good idea the larger tires and wheels make it a lot easier to roll around..A rotisserie with a body on it weighs quite a bit..

Thanks
I would stay away from inflatable tires. If they are low or flat it may be unstable with a car on it. I would go with as large as possible steel casters. They will be the easiest to roll around. Even the steel ones with rubber bonded on them get hard to move.

Thank you i kind of figured that. I'm going to get something better this is a home made rottiserrie and its heavy duty i'm sure if i put a cheap caster on there i will be replacing them in no time with ones i should have bought in the first place.

Don't think theres a princess auto anywhere near me. I noticed that northern has a 12" caster listed on there website. Only thing is there is only one review on it and the person stated the caster fell apart without even being close to the maximum weight its supposed to hold. I guess i better buy something half decent the first time instead of trying to get the cheapest priced ones.

steve392 Here's another source for casters:

Grizzly Industrial has a lot of stuff, probably somewhere between Northern Tool and McMaster-Carr in both price and selection.....

That's where I'm getting my next set.

Farm supply stores usually have them too.

I'm sure there are several industrial supply stores in Thunder bay that sell casters. This one looks promising (click here)


Hope this helps.

OneMoreTime I would use the wheels from a trailer..bit on the spendy side but they work really well..We use these on our pit cart and it rolls fine even on rough ground..
