    Rig on wheels

    Where can I get a set of wheels for my case? I have got an Antec 1200. Anything I could fit onto its base to have it on wheels without requiring to drill the case or damage it in any way.


    Regards,

    Easiest solution is something like this, unless of course the Antec 1200 has the points available on the case for Castor wheels.

    Re: Rig on wheels

    I used just a flat bit of wood and screwed some standard castor wheels on the bottom, and put some non-slip stuff on top. Works great.

    Re: Rig on wheels

    I just popped the plastic feet out and put castors on using the holes where the plastic feet fit and large washers to spread the load, Obviously depends on which case you have.

    Re: Rig on wheels

    Have you considered ball castors like these?



    Low profile, elegant solution as long as you don't mind taking to your 250 quid Lian Li 130 quid Antec with a (small) drill.
    Also available with nylon balls to prevent marking!

    Don't know these any of these guys but might be worth a phone call if you like the idea.

    Re: Rig on wheels

    Or you could just get a chassis that has wheels in the box, like the Akasa Omega.
