Great Value

I built a rolling cabinet for my Dewalt contractor table saw out of 3/4" OSB. It is 2 foot wide and 4 foot long and pretty heavy. I wanted it heavy to make the saw more stable. I originally put 3" inch castors on it in this same style. They were just too small and over loaded so the cabinet was hard to move. I put these four inch castors on and it now rolls with just one hand. But the double locking mechanism holds it firmly in place when needed. So learn from my mistake and don't use castors that are too small and learn from my experience that these castors from Northern Tool work well in the proper application. I haven't seen any competitors castors that match the price and quality.

Good quality locking brake wheels-good value

I am using these on a drill press for mobility. The press probably weights around 120-150 lbs. It rolls well and the lock secures the wheel from rolling as well as the axle from pivoting. So once locked down it won't move in any direction. A slight amount of play in it, but for my purpose not a biggie. I bought 4 and will have one on each corner-but an alternate is to get a fixed wheel for 2 of the 4 and that would make it easier to roll in a straight line than all 4 pivoting-however, I find it handy to move in any direction and with fixed rear wheels you'd have to back in with a fairly straight line and use only one side to pivot. So it's a little squirrely to have all 4 but I prefer it. Once in place I lock down and good to go. Much cheaper than buying a mobile base-for items not needing to be heavier capacity. I will buy again.

I purchased two 4" rubber casters #189314 for the back of a planner table.
I also purchased two 4" rubber casters #26996 with brakes for the front of the table.
Excellent quality casters!
Your specs say they are the same 4 3/4" overall height.
The one with a break is much higher.
Minor modification required to table so it's level.
See attached photo.
