Instructions

Step 1

Download the Rolling Bucket Caster Drilling Guide and print a copy on 12-inch x 18-inch paper. Cut out the pattern and attach it centered and flat on the underside of the bucket using tape or spray adhesive. (Avoid pressing it into the ridges on the bucket bottom.)

Good to Know

Before going further, place a caster on the bucket bottom where shown on the guide, and check that it swivels freely without hitting the side of the bucket. If it doesn’t, move the caster slightly toward the center.

Step 2

Place the bucket upside down with the inside bottom supported on a scrap of 2 x 4 or 4 x 4 to avoid denting the bucket. Use a hammer and scratch awl to make a small hole at each caster screw location on the bucket.

Step 3

At each small hole, drill a 1/4-inch hole for the caster mounting screws. Then remove the pattern and any debris blocking the holes.

Step 4

Place a caster in position. Add a washer to a machine screw, pass the screw through the caster plate and bucket, and hold it in place with a washer and hand-tightened nut. Repeat for the remaining screws and for each caster. Once the screws are in place, use a screwdriver and pliers to tighten all of the screws.

Step 5

Turn the bucket right side up and test that the casters roll and turn freely. If you like, add a decorative painted finish to all or part of the outside of the bucket.

Good to Know

This bucket comes with a lid that can be held tightly in place, allowing the container to store any loose, dry material dust-free.
