Is there a good set of castors that can be fitted to a PM( or heavy lathe) that  work? I would like to mount my lathe so Io could move it or rotate it, but when using it the actual feet are on the floor not on the castors.


Well, there are but they have a funny name.
Do an internet (google) search for "machine casters"

Ed, what is a machine skate? Never heard of that one before...

Machine skates are HD low profile wheels/casters designed for moving heavy machinery. They come in many, many different styles. Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

I had a thinking wheel once upon a time but the little squirrel that used to make it spin fell out, now the wheel just sits there.
