Picture of Adding Wheels to Old Wrigley Field Seat
Several years ago, my dad received an old Wrigley Field seat as a gift, and due to lack of space in his office nowadays, I've claimed it to use as my workshop seat.  The upside?  It's an old Wrigley Field seat!  The downside?  It has no wheels!  And we all know how important it is to be able to move around in your seat.  So I decided to add wheels to it - not a difficult task but what an improvement!

Step 1: The Parts

Picture of The Parts
The seat is bolted to two 1-1/2" heavy duty metal bars - a perfect base to work with.  There are lots of ways to get wheels onto this thing but I decided to go with casters, metal plates, and machine screws because I wanted to be minimally invasive (i.e. not drill into the bars).  The parts I purchased were:

- four 2" casters
- four "mending plates" (basically just metal plates I found in the hardware store that had holes that aligned with the holes in the caster plate)
- sixteen 10x24 x 2" machine screws
- sixteen 10x24 locking nuts
- and the most important piece is obviously the seat itself

Aren't you afraid that if you sit in it, you'll never win anything again?

Thanks! It was definitely a case of wandering around the hardware store until I found components that all worked together well. Good result!
