You can get a bed caster at a local hardware and stick a handle in it for a couple of bucks.

Sandy,
There's a set screw on the bottom of the tool, loosen, insert pry bar and tighten.

The only pry bars we have are the flat ones. This must be another kind we don't have. Am I getting closer on figuring this out?

Think CROW BAR - more hefty shaft.
(no this doesn't belong in the "Sex in an Airstream" thread)

Unfortunately, tried looking for one over the past 4 months in at least 10-15 different hardware stores. As of yet I have not found a place that actually has metal casters still. The only ones are 1/2" to 3/4" wide. Maybe its a California thing. They probably are "known to cause cancer" and are thus banned with plastic ones in their stead.

Glad to know there is a good place to purchase an alternative for $20. Thanks for posting all the links.

Update

I finally went out and got quotes to fabricate my design. The price per unit was all over the place but I finally found a machine shop to fab for a somewhat reasonable price. My only problem now is how many roller barrels I want turned out. The more I have made the cheaper it will be, but I am leaning on an initial run of 20 units.

Please PM me if there is still an interest.

Production Run #1

Here they are, if anyone is still interested PM me for details. I made an initial run of 20. If you are going to the FCU Restoration Rally you may reserve a unit until then.

1. If you are younger than me, you can't be old because I'm NOT!

2. Analog? Shirley, you jest--didn't you just finish making your C-130 digital?
