Looking for Antique Casters?

This page is not being updated, see my Antique Caster page for current pricing.


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.
——
We offer 5″ swivel casters. 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.

Below is a set of heavy duty industrial 6″ cast iron caster wheels. The swiveling wheels are 2″ wide and are rated to 900 lbs each. They also have a weathered patina on the steel with small amounts of rust. These are brand new distressed casters. Weight is about 8 lbs each!

Below is a picture of a 6″ swiveling caster with brake, 8″ rigid caster, 4″ swiveling, and a 6″ rigid caster. All of these are heavy duty, and very heavy. My stock varies so contact me if you are interested. 602-322-1111, or email sales@retro.net.

    Hey working on a project and need a total of 8 casters….is that possible or do you only have 4?

    Will probably need 4 more of the big ones for some interior barn doors too!

    Hello!
    I would like to ask you if you send casters in Greece (Athens) and the shipping cost. I’m interested in a four piece set.
    Thank you a lot in advance

    I am needing 4 caster wheels to place on the bottom of an old wood trunk. I am not sure what type of mounting I would need. THe trunk is 60″ long and 24″ tall, 24″ deep. I was thinking a 5″ wheel would be appropriate? Please give me your input on the type of mounting I need and size.
    THank you

    I am in a time crunch – would the caster wheels be sent out immediately or is there a waiting period?
