I was so impressed by Iceng's excellent Magic Rolling Steps Instructable, that I immediately thought I'd improve on the idea by adding castors.  This is the prototype, but castors could also be used on a full-size extending ladder to allow you to easily manoeuvre it close to the wall to get the ideal 15 degree angle.  The safe angle for a ladder is to position it one foot away from the wall for every four feet of ladder's height before you climb it.  Safety first, chindogu.
<p>Ladders on wheels, my back thanks you.</p>
This looks like it could work pretty well. I have a friend who uses something similar for <a href="http://www.aaa-roofs.com/roofing-repair-oswego-illinois.html" rel="nofollow">roofing in Oswego IL</a> only he has some different features for added stability. Nevertheless, the mobility is awesome.
april fools?
<strong>&nbsp;</strong><br> No, Chindogu. A Japanese word for things which at first sight appear to solve a problem but actually create other problems.&nbsp; Have a look at <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-it-Challenge-Chindogu/" rel="nofollow">the other entries in the contest</a>.

Ha Ha imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.<br /> Levitation as my grandson can do will be a real asset here :-)<br /> <br /> A
This one made me laugh - very nice!
I predict much pain for the person who uses this. Am I the only one who thinks this is a terrible idea? even with locking castors you couldn't pay me to step on that thing.
It's a terrible idea and that's the point! ;)<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-it-Challenge-Chindogu/">http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-it-Challenge-Chindogu/</a>
