Default What does everyone use for their wheels?

I am looking to order some wheels for my brew sculpture, however at my hardware store all I see are this style...

http://www.castercity.com/images/3RF5X-TS61.jpg

Obviously I need some type of insert for it to go into.
My sculpture is made out of 1x1 metal (don't remember the wall thickness).

Is there anywhere to get these inserts? Maybe a wheel/insert combo?

I've tried searching but didn't come up with much.

Not sure if this is what I need...

Well do you have a pic of your brew structure?

If you have feet on the structure, just drill through them and bolt those wheels on.

If not, you may need to make some feet on your structure to attach those wheels.

Why not consider using a furniture moving dolly?

Caster City - Casters - Swivel Caster - Gray Soft Rubber Wheel - Model K3
Something like this would work if you welded plates to the bottoms of the legs and bolted them on.

I've used caster city a couple of time. Any new office chair I get automaticly gets new wheels. I hate the cheap plastic split wheels they all come with. I use roller blade wheels on my chairs. Put in ABEC-7/9 bearings and you'll win every office chair race

You can source them through Amazon as well. I bought some for a stereo rack project about a year ago.

Check the wall thickness and see if maybe this is what you need.

This is the system I used on Brutus along with some flashy blue Caster City wheels...

Mine came from my kids' Radio Flyer wagon after they outgrew it.
