    My vintage 810 has the dolly attached, but the wheels were replaced. a NOS 810 dolly just sold on ebay & i noticed in the pic that 2 of the casters are set and the other 2 spin. all 4 casters on mine spin & it seems that it would be easier to "steer" if i put set casters on one side like the original design. it would be easy enough to go buy the part and just try it, but do you folks with the set casters on one side think its a good design, or is it hard to steer the thing?

    I never had a problem moving mine with the 2 set casters.

    After seeing the set casters it seems that design makes more sense. when both sets spin it can get away from you. :meh:
     
  4. With two of them set it is easier to steer, trust me.
