Here are some Vintage Industrial style casters I am now carrying. The 6″ wheels were forged in America and designed around the 1940s. I will be adding these to my Antique Caster page soon. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a set. The top two pictured have a 6″ spoked cast iron wheel. The bottom two have a cast iron wheel with a rubber tread.
Here is a prototype caster I built which you can buy on our new website now –> http://www.retro.net/product-category/antique-casters-wheels/
Here some awesome 4″ casters I got yesterday, defiantly the coolest casters I’ve found to date . They weigh 9lbs each, are rated to 600lbs, and are all cast-iron with a great vintage design dating back to the 40s. I will be stocking theses and putting them on my designs in the near future (if I can get more). I have 8 for sale right now at $275 for a set of 4.
I’ll be making a run of casters soon similar to the design below. They’ll use a heavy duty 6″ cast iron wheel and have a rigid industrial frame. So they will roll but not swivel. I’ve been looking for casters like these for a year and can’t find them so I decided to make them. Pricing is going to be approximately $225 for a set of 4 and they will be handmade here in America, Phoenix to be exact.

I keep getting calls about the caster wheels I use, people are asking where I get them. When I first started this business, I was doing the same thing which was trying to source old or antique caster wheels for my projects. I did find a couple on Ebay, but they were very expensive or not a full set. So I decided to buy new casters and distress them through various processes I discovered. And recently, I decided to start selling the casters I use on my furniture. My stock changes all the time, but I can get (or have) 4″, 5″, 6″, and 8″ casters.
I have a set of 5″ swivel casters for $180 + $20 shipping. They use a 3/4″ threaded stem, have upper and lower ball bearings, are rated to 300 lbs each, and are 6″ in total height. The wheels are made of cast iron and have a flat black paint job. The frame of the casters has a weathered patina with some light rust. These are brand new, just distressed by me. Below is a picture of the set and a desk that uses the same wheels. I stock these casters with brakes or locks. Feel free to contact me so I can check my stock here: Contact Form
