    I'm on the mobile app so I can't post a link, I apologize for that. (app please robin) If you go to eBay and search "pinball machine casters, wheels. New." There's some listed in Vienna Va. Close to me. They look nice. The ad says they lock both swivel and roll. It also says it does not raise them "much". However I'm 6'3" so that's fine. I'm on hard wood and these would be nice. Just wondering if anyone has tried them.

    They look like it would be a good deal for when you are working on them but for full time install I would think they would not do so good. jmo

    Thinking of buying a set of old legs and put the casters on. Then putting to legs on what ever machine I'm shopping or restoring at the moment. It would be nice if they worked full time though.

    Looks like a good price. I did a quick search at Harbor Freight's site and the closest thing I found was $6.99 a piece, and the bolts aren't very long.

    An Op had a pair and I got to see it in action. They're very cool and handy for moving machines around, and much smaller than a pin dolly so you can throw them in your trunk or whatever. Not sure about leaving them on full time.

    Your legs + casters would work, but could be a big PITA if the game is up against a wall and/or surrounded by other games, making it difficult to get to the leg bolts in the back. The skates are nice because you can crawl under a game.
