If updating vintage furniture, replace all casters. This insures uniform height, style & appearance.
Swivel Wood Wheel Casters are a vintage style used on 19th to early 20th century furniture. Old look complements antique and vintage furniture. Rolls on carpet and hard floors.
Wood wheel casters have a steel assembly and socket-sleeve for mounting. Wheels are maple with a walnut stain. Caster has ball bearing fork mechanism providing enhanced turning ability. This mechanism enables caster to swivel easier when under load.
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.
Drill hole: 3/8" x 1 5/8" in bottom of furniture leg. Insert socket-sleeve. Gently tap in place.
Some older furniture has socket-sleeve, from previous caster, still in place. Replacement wood wheel casters may or may-not snap into old sleeves. Old sleeves can be removed and replaced with new sleeves.
Once socket-sleeve is in place: push caster-stem into sleeve until it snaps into place.
