It dawned on me. bob s ..............whats your thoughts I'll wait awhile for feedback bob s
that is a great idea.... welding on some coupling nuts to the sides of the legs and using all thread.. as a crank down to stop the movement. might stick a nut about an inch up from the bottom end and an inch and a quarter of 3/4 heater hose.. so it has a rubber to the concrete stopper or a crutch stopper if you want to get fancy...

Going to town today to check our H/F first .Nickles do get rare.Ihave had clamps on the wheels [plastic=- so that won't work well Wedges ......i would think that they would work their way out as you move around working on the body. and maybe not. Least i have ideas i didn't have befor this post BIG THANK YOU goes out to all you guys who expressed their ideas.Great forum for this Bob s

if you do the same thing but make an UPSIDE DOWN U shape that is tack welded in place.. you can tighten the wing nut headed bolt that is at 45 degrees to it does not effect clearance of the wheel rotating directly into the middle of the tread.. locking your caster wheels in place.. you would probably only need to do two of them .. but you could do 4...

Thats agreat idea Wayne,,,,i'll be considering this idea...this afternoon
GOOD idea bob s ........thank you much Wayne

Fasto44 We use angle iron chocks on our race tire carts. We made them out of 1 1/2" L angle. They are three pieces welded into a "C" shape. Make the "C' long enough for the other two legs to capture the caster wheel. They work realy well and are easy to make.

Oldguy48 Maybe a couple of C-clamps tightened on the casters would work. Or cut out a wooden wedge that you can jam between the top of the caster wheel and the underside of the steel "fork" that the caster wheel fits into.
