Re: End of an era?




That’s mighty handy for anyone that has the large cases and lost their wheels or wish to add them.  Thanks for posting.

Hi Jim

Is your scope case one of the Astro-Physics wood cases ? I had the same experience with my 180 EDT case. As I am getting older the force of gravity is getting stronger.

Astro-Physics sold me a set of removable wheels that I installed on my 180 EDT case, but you can also get them directly from a company called Crest Lock. Some people may remember that Hartmann and Boyt suitcases use these wheels before the in-line roller wheels became so popular. Be sure to get the ones with ball bearings. You will need to move the foam on the bottom of your case out of the way to install the receivers, and you should install the wheels at both ends of the case.

Best Regards
