Brass Casters  were used on furniture during the 19th and early 20th centuries. They are a stem type. Stem requires minimal install-space, making this style ideal for furniture with thin narrow legs. This classic style provides a time-honored appearance.

These reproduction casters are brass with a steel stem. Substantial fork and wheel are solid brass. Finish is polished, not lacquered. Stem-type is known as a spiral-threaded Philadelphia drive stem.

Measure Stem-Type Casters

  • Wheel diameter: diameter of caster wheel
  • Raises Furniture: is the height the furniture will be raised above the floor
  • Caster Stem:  measured diameter x height. 

Install Casters

Load Capacity, caster strength and stability is directly related to correct installation. If a caster is incorrectly installed it will-not be strong or serviceable.

  • Threaded Stem Casters have a round shank with coarse threads known as a Philadelphia drive stem.
  • Use on round or square furniture legs.
  • Drill hole in furniture leg slightly smaller in diameter than diameter of drive stem. Depth should be approximately 1/4" deeper than length of caster stem.
  • Screw threaded steel Philadelphia drive stem up into pre-drilled hole.
  • Fit should be snug

If furniture has missing or damaged casters: Replace all casters to insure uniform  height, style and appearance.

Perfect Match

I needed to match two caster I had for a couple of years, and after much searching Paxton had the same brand and size. The woman I spoke with on the telephone gave good information that made me confident I had found a match. Very pleased with Paxton on all fronts.


I started my business back in 1972. I am basically an antique restorer, both upholstered and wooden furniture. I work by myself and do all my own restorations. I don’t purchase big orders from Paxton, because I am a custom shop, not a mass production type of business. I have been with you guys for around 40 plus years. I have always liked your company because you are courteous, fast, and sell at fair prices. You guys gave me a 10% discount years ago, and even though I buy very little now from you due to health and age problems, you still honor that discount. I’m 70 years old, and still working (not by choice), but I will still use Paxton for any of my hardware needs. You guys are a wonderful company, and I thank you for all the years of taking care of my (customers) needs. May GOD bless you all.
