It would make life a lot easier if I were to build a very low platform to place my very heavy Yamaha 690ii speakers on so they won't scratch the floor and so they will quickly and easily move into and out of the listening position.
Anyone know of small but sturdy rubber casters that can do the job?
These people have self-levelling, vibration-damping castors.
If for a hardwood floor application, Teflon sliders/gliders would likely be a better sounding option than rubber casters. Herbie's Audio Lab offers audiophile-quality gliders for the purpose.
From Herbie and they are great.
I use Herbie's gliders too, however the speakers that the OP uses are vintage. They are finished on all sides and don't have the T-nut inserts for studs and might not want the adhesive on the veneer. Sounds like he wants to build low jack type dollies to make them easy to move.
Exactly. However, I just realized that the stands I got can probably accept nail-in sliders that should take care of the problem. I think the bases are thick enough to accept a 1/2 inch nail or maybe even a T-nut.
I restored a CR 2020 and gave it to a young budding vinylophile.
These hold 125lbs. each.
