Re: Caster Upgrade

All three cam positions work perfectly . The 2" profile on the new caster is the same as the old caster. The hard rubber wheels does not move as easy as the old steel wheels. That is the only difference I have found so far. Machine still pushes fine though. :) What is thy definition of 'perfec...

Something wrong with these??? https://www.shopsmith.com/ownersite/catalog/standard_replacement_caster.htm Yes. Looking for a set that has ball bearings between the stem and wheel bracket.
