Polished Small Brass Stem Casters

Polished Small Brass Stem Casters are a useful option for narrow chair and table legs as caster is held in place with special threaded drive stem. This Philadelphia drive stem screws up into furniture leg, fitting tightly. Caster-wheels swivel independently of stem. Solid brass wheel and fork

If furniture has broken or missing casters it is recommended that all casters be replaced to insure uniform height, style and function.

    Threaded Stem Casters have a round shank with coarse threads known as a Philadelphia drive stem. This type caster is useful on furniture legs which are narrow as stem is sole means of attachment, no plate or sleeve are used. Frequently used on chair legs during the mid 1800's to the early 1900's. Once installed stem must fit snugly in leg for a proper fit, if loose, caster can wobble.

    To Install:

    • Drill hole in furniture leg slightly smaller in diameter than diameter of drive stem. Depth should be approximately 1/4" deeper than length of caster stem.
    • Screw threaded steel Philadelphia drive stem up into predrilled hole.
    • Fit should be snug

    If replacing an existing caster, measure the diameter and height of center hole in leg. If hole in leg is too large plug with wood dowel, then re-drill hole. Height of center hole must be tall enough to accommodate threaded stem.

    Our casters are quality reproductions, strong, well made and designed specifically for furniture. They are very serviceable under normal conditions. As with all antique casters they are made for occasional rolling. Industry testing has not been done on most reproduction casters as a result load bearing capacity is not available.

    These reproduction casters are designed and produced to support and move furniture. They are strong and dependable. When replacing or adding casters: proper fitting and mobility are the key considerations.

    There is a direct correlation between caster strength and correct installation. Casters must fit snugly to furniture, with as little play as possible.

    The larger the wheel, the easier the caster rolls and the less likely it is to hitch or indent the floor.
