Having just completed the caster mounting series, it came as quite a surprise when we saw this caster. Shown on right is a kingpinless caster with a 2” x 2” angle stem for mounting. The caster had to be designed as shown to reduce the mounting height of the caster as much as possible.
The caster is composed of a 71 series rig, welded to a 2” x 2” angle iron section, that has been punched for mounting. The wheel is 2-1/2” diameter glass filled nylon wheel. In order to distinguish the caster from older stock, which has a higher overall height, and is therefore incompatible with this caster, it has been zinc-dichromate plated. Zinc-dichromate provides the brass/gold finish shown.
Got an odd application, let us know. We love working on them.
