Stool Caster Repair Answered

I have a short stainless steel stool on wheeled casters. The caster itself is in two parts; the wheel with a long prong that inserts into a receptacle which together fit into the leg of the stool . See attached jpeg of the receptacle in question. I need 4 of these receptacles. Can anyone direct me to where they can be had? Thank you in advance for any consideration you give this matter.

Need to size your caster pegs to fit and the mounting hole. Home centers may have them but you would have to ask.

Some of the huge hardware/homeware stores carry a pretty decent variety of the too.

If you have access to a lathe, you could turn your own out of timber (the vanes are not an absolute requirement, they just reduce the amount of material required in the build).
