Too Ultramodern for Gemini?

Too Ultramodern for Gemini?

When I ran across these wheel designs this morning, first thought was an ideal match for the new Gemini Series. Yes, your eyes are not fooling you, that's a pocket of air molecules floating within the hollow of the wheel, they are a hubless design.

Too ultramodern for some? Possibly

They are rated at 70lbs per wheel vs 100lbs per wheel for the CaseLabs HD large, so maybe not for mounting under a THW10 or SMA8, yet ideal for smaller and medium cases residing on your desktop weighing less than 280lbs.

I think they are absolutely beautiful and that brake lever makes me all drooly face. drool.gif I also believe the future is clearly visible within those air-filled hubs if you stare long enough.

Get it? that's a space time continuum joke, since if you stare for 15minutes, its 15minutes later. Hahahahaha, ok only moderately funny. lachen.gif


The cost is about double the current CaseLabs HD (the larger size) wheels, but as a $39.99 upcharge for a set of four, oh yes!


"Please Great Creator, if we are very very good, may we have them?" smile.gif

Looks good. Two (2) questions ...

1) isn't the screw spacing on the CL stuff 1"?
2) Is the pictured wheel soft plastic or hard plastic (it looks soft)?

The mounting plate and holes are slightly larger at 36mm than the CaseLabs 25mm or 1inch dimension.

But, I believe the stems on casters are mostly universal right? Since the same wheel is used with a 1) stem and plate, and 2) push on stem for office chairs and 3) the threaded mounts for furniture. And these hubless wheels ship unassembled stem and plate separate from the wheel. So if the inner stems are universal, we could keep our CaseLabs 25mm plates/stems screwed into the cases, pull the CL wheels off the stems and pop these wheels onto the CL stem and plate.

I'd have to contact Mockett the manufacturer to find out if all inner stems are created equal before ordering a set of four.

And yes, each wheel has two soft rubber tires, for soft wheel lovers Mr. Ruff. tongue.gif

We'll save this wheel below for the CaseLabs Saturn Series:

It's visual humor. lachen.gif

Live chatted with Mockett, they said the stem mount for these wheels is a straight 10mm diameter all the way down with zero taper.

So if the CL wheel stem and mount is also 10mm or 3/8ths inch, I'll order a set of four black hubless wheels for $42, and mount them to the Mercury S8S, take some pics and see just how they look. smile.gif

Just need to find out the CL HD wheel stem diameter. headscratch.gif

...is the stem length not important, a standard for office equipment?

These guys are just south of Los Angeles, conveniently located, if CL did want to offer a different wheel for Gemini.




"If chatted is indeed a word, it seems like such a sloppy word." thinking.gif


Another live chat with Mockett to find out if they could ship the wheels with a 40mm x 40mm and 25mm x 25mm hole distance CL conforming top plate and stem.

They only carry one size, yet the conversation did yield their OEM which makes stems and plates in many sizes for many makers.

So I could pop pull or pry off one of my CL HD wheels and simply measure for a true 10mm diameter stem that should make for an ideal match OR contact the top plate maker which most likely is the same maker of the CaseLabs top plates and see if they can be purchased separately.

Whew, the things you do for just a simple change in aesthetic.

Oh my what have we come to? "Chatted chatted is a word and very much a sloppy word, one that I cannot pretend that I will ever use again." biggrin.gif

They look to be "Made in Italy." Look nice to me. Do you suppose that they'd be drilled differently than the ones CL currently uses?

I spoke with Mockett in Los Angeles, the wheels with no hubs, hubless design is just that designed by two brothers in Italy. Mockett said they are assembled here in the US and gave me the manufacturer name.

Mockett is only the distributor. redface.gif
