Everything Needs Casters!

ScopeRoller puts wheels under telescopes and some people overapply the principle.

I have a planer that I use for trimming acetal to thickness.  Normally, I keep it below the table with the CNC mill, and drag it out only when I need it.  My wife suggested it needed casters to reduce to noise as it scraped across the concrete.

 These monsters are really much bigger than it needs, but they were scrap that I was going to discard anyway.  The castersgo through holes normally used for bolting the planer to a workbench, but why be normal?
