great selection and a helpful staff

The prices are competitive with Harbor Freight (which is just 4 miles from my house).  They won't give the freight cost unless you fill out the entire purchase information, so I could not find out the cost to ship. 

It is also rated at 200 pounds each and the H-F is rated at 125 pounds each. 

If it is a cost issue, then it all boils down to the freight cost.

Yes. I've done that. Very decent castors
I'm going to be shopping at HF less and less though.

These are awesome. Not sure if they meet your price point.

$4.19 each; 125 pound rated per caster.  With four casters that is a total of 500 pounds.

Thanks all. I ordered a few sets from Amazon with 1000 lb capacity, which should be more than enough. Will be trying them out to see how they do on some various chests and cabinets. Appreciate all the feedback and suggestions.

I have a set of these on my router table base:

They work well, and I have another set in the cabinet waiting for me to finally make a roll-around sharpening/grinding station.

The ones WxMan linked are the same I listed in my text post and they’re excellent.
I got a couple of sets and will be getting more of them.

I purchased those they are very sturdy. I sat on the cabinet that I made with them on it and didn’t budge. When they lock it locks the wheel completely so it will not swivel or roll
