Industrial Cart Casters
Set of 4 antique industrial casters of thick cast iron with a luscious patina. Model 837 by M. B. Schenck & Company of Meriden, Connecticut with patent date of April 17, 1888.
Overall height of 4”. 2 1/2” wheels with 1 1/4" face. 2 3/4” x 3 7/8” swivel mounting plates.
Thoroughly scoured with power wire brushes to remove rust and soaked in degreaser to remove factory grime. Hand washed, lubricated and ready for use.
In pristine condition! I believe these to be unused new old stock. I acquired a crate of a half dozen sets of these, and although all had thick rust from 130 years of storage, all have a bright metal surface under the rust, with no signs of wear, factory grime, or ever having been lubricated. A very rare find!
Interestingly, Mr. Schenck was a supporter of presidential candidate Lincoln. He served for the duration of the Civil War, and voted for Lincoln a second time by sending his ballot home from the war. He founded his caster company shortly after returning home. Thank you for your service, Mr. Schenck!
