I used to build gym equipment and still do a little consulting, etc. I have
been working with a couple people trying to install too much equipment into
too small of a space. Sound familiar?
So I went to the old shop solution and started to install casters on the
side or bottom of some pieces. That way they can be wheeled into position to
be used and wheeled out of the way when done.
Most of the time I make an angled block so the caster is just a fraction of
an inch off the floor. Then just lift one end and wheel it away. If needed I
could install a handle of some kind on the other end. Many modern benches
for home gym have this feature already. I just put it on some equipment in
this guys garage.
Anyway, I did one unit tonight and the guy I was working with got so excited
he bought all the tools and supplies so he could do it himself. That is OK,
I have other things to do. I thought it was interesting that I have not seen
this shop solution done that often for home gyms.
Now I am looking around and envisioning other things I can install casters
