   Linda bought a small HF green house to keep her seedlings in and needed a way to roll it in and out of the garage when the nights are too cold. I bought some HF casters and made adapters to fit greenhouse legs. Only needed one wrap of elec tape around the stubs to make them a tight fit. Amazing I had what I needed in my "possibles" collection!!

Looks good. You might need to brace the back of the greenhouse diagonally if it racks too much when pushed, especially if it's got some weight on it.

The greenhouse looks great! Should make Linda very happy!!

 

A large possibles collection makes projects doable. I hate having to run to the store for bolts, nuts or misc hardware. I have compiled a LARGE supply of possibles! :bounce:  :bounce:

Looks good!

Also, why are the casters wrapped in tape? This is not the first time I have seen it.

  I just had to wrap once around the stub that goes in the bottom of the greenhouse frame so it would fit tight and not fall out if the greenhouse is lifted, which it will have to be due to a 1 1/2" ledge going in the garage.

No, I mean the wheel part. It looks like they have blue painter's tape on them.

  Nah, the wheels are blue. You didn't really expect Momma's greenhouse to have plain ol' black wheels,did ya?,LOL!!
