New Product: Non-Marking Vintage Casters May 31 2015, 0 Comments

Don't say we never listen to our customers...

Ever since we invented our line of Vintage-Industrial casters and wheels, we've had a ton of people asking for a wheel tread that was safe for all flooring types. Sure, we offered the rubber tread versions in a 5 inch version, in a 6 inch version, and in an 8 inch version - but the same thing was unavailable in the smaller 1-1/4" wide versions.

Note the verbiage there; was unavailable. This is no longer the case.

VI Supply is happy to report that we now offer a brand-new line of polyurethane tread swivel and rigid vintage industrial casters and wheels! Yippee! Hurray!

Now in stock and available for immediate shipping, the 4 and 5 inch versions comes standard with a black polyurethane wheel tread, which is safe for all flooring types, while still featuring the throw-back, steampunk look of a spoke wheel hub. You can now officially have your cake and eat it too.

We know it's been extremely tough to find a caster with that classic vintage-industrial look and feel to it that you will feel safe rolling around on hardwood floors - this is why we created this specific wheel. One less thing to worry about, right?

If you have questions, as always, please send an email to info@vintageindustrialsupply.com - or you can reach us on Twitter at @VISupply.

Cheers, and happy DIYing! (That really looks like dying, doesn't it? We hope you know what we meant. Do-It-Yourselfing, of course. Definitely not dying. That would be an awful thing to say.)

Floor Flanges! January 19 2015, 0 Comments

If you're a fan of making cool stuff, you hopefully already know about floor flanges. They are a great way to connect metal pipes to wood table tops, floors, and countless additional applications and surfaces.

V.I. Supply is now carrying these wonderful little life-savers in many different sizes, in both galvanized and black.
