Set of 4 Cleaned 4" Vintage Casters

What a cool find! Big, heavy-duty, vintage casters salvaged from

Southeastern Pennsylvania. Each caster consists of a rubber wheel, 2 round

steel plates, and a steel yoke or fork with pin. Originally, all steel parts

were chrome plated, however, much of the plating wore off leaving them with

a nice, distressed finish.

We found the wheels on a bar cart that we attempted to

work on. The cart was in bad shape, and it didn't take long for us to

realize that it was too far gone to salvage and still make any profit on it.

However, we did save the best parts of the cart! The casters are about 40 - 50 years old.

At the point of salvage, the casters were filthy and

tarnished

(see last photo). Since then, we disassembled them, cleaned all parts to the

best of our ability, and then put them back together, spraying grease in and

around the king pin (wheel axel) and in the ball-bearing joint in between

the yoke/fork & pin. There are still spots of rust here and there, but that

just augments the aged, distressed look of the casters.

The rubber wheels have chips and scrapes, however, that's

what makes them cool and one-of-a-kind! Their structural integrity is very

much intact. All of the steel parts are in great shape with no breaks, cracks, chips, dents, or heavy scratches.

All movable parts move easily and smoothly. These are ready for another

lifetime of service!
