I looked, must have erased them. The only pic I have is posted on page 3. I found mounting the wheels to be one of the the easier part of the DIY project. I cut the "strap tight" strips into rectangles, then drilled 4 holes in each of them using my metal step drill bit. It just gave me more surface area to mount the casters which has a base the shape of a rectangle, so I cut the the strap rite an inch or two longer for screws and a more sturdy fit.
Two of the wheels will have plenty of freezer space to mount them, easy to mount with four screws in each. The other two wheels did not have very much freezer to mount wheels too, due to the fact that they were under the hump of the freezer. I just fit 2 bolts and 2 screws on each of the wheels under the hump. When you flip dat keezer, you will see. When I did mine, I was poundin' dem pints!
I found the "strap tight" at the home depot in the lumber section, used to join large pieces of wood. They are easy to cut to the size you want. I went out and measured each of the rectangles.....all were cut to 2 inch by 6 inch. 4 bolts w nuts, 12 self screws just less than an inch long.
I'm listening to my yeast starter swirling behind right now, almost like a water fountain at work. I'm brewing a Weizenbock in the morning, it's like 10 degrees here in southeast Michigan. Post some pics here when you finish with your build.
