    Caster kit source?

    Looking to source a caster kit for the "Lowe's 5-Tier Chrome Wire Shelving Unit" that are so popular for Cp plant racks

    Anyone have a source?... catalog number?... etc.

    Thanks in advance,
    Av

    Edit: Well nevermind, I just put the shelf together and the feet appear to be standard 5/16" NC thread... common as the day is long, should have my choice of casters

    :P

    I've picked up racks from both Lowe's and Sam's club and both came with casters and feet- you select which you want to install at time of build. The racks I got from Sam's club did have a considerable higher weight load than the ones at Lowe's though... That being said- I cannot confirm or deny that this is the same brand that I purchased a few years back. I would definitely go down and read the box (or call them to have them go look) I bet that one has them as well.

    Well dang, the sam's unit sounds nice.... but no sam's club for many, many miles..
    Went back to Lowe's and they have a decent 500lb, 4" caster kit packaged just for that shelf unit,
    Item # 001513 for $21 and change after taxes

    (doesnt appear to be listed online)

    That will make life much easier down the road IMHO, money well spent

    FYI Costo sells the same shelves 18"x48"x 74" (chrome) with 6 tiers and casters for under $100.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    For anyone who needs casters for projects, if you have a farm store such as Mills Fleet Farm near by, you can find casters from 1" in size all the way up to big heavy duty ones with 6" wheels. They also carry standard desk chair size caster wheels.

    Mine are all 6 tiers too, didn't even catch the 5 part in his post. :-X With the option of having them built as 2 half shelves, or 1 full size... (I guess that's why it comes with both feet options?) it'd be odd to have one half with 3 shelves (top bottom middle) and another with 2 shelves haha!

    Here is the sams one.. shipping comes up to $48.62. so if you have access to sams card, it may be better to get one with casters and higher weight capacity and have it delivered? http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/nav...=5&item=168602
