Cabinet Leveling Feet


I'm going to be building a mobile island and plan in the next week or so. My plan is to set is on small swivel casters and then have legs that can be adjusted from inside the cabinet. I've found a couple options searching online, but I was wondering if any of you had used something like that before and if you could recommend one over another.

The island will be roughly 30x48, so maybe 16-18 sf of granite on top of it. I figured 6 small casters and 6 legs should be enough to support it.

My other thought was having a toe kick that was removable to adjust the legs if necessary.

Thanks!
Rich

Woodcraft has a few options.

Rocker would also be a good place to look.

I saw that one bit I couldn't tell if it was adjustable from the top or not.

Tom, do you mean the casters that have the lock already on them? I want to keep the casters hidden and all the locking ones I'm familiar with would need access

Inner, ill take a look at those

Worked out well. I let the wheels stick down about 1/8"so it can move freely. 6 small holes to get the Allen key into for getting the height set
