Re: Stand with casters (was APDigest V3 #733)

Hello Jim,

Unless you make a solid-bottom tank stand to distribute the weight
evenly over a large area, the legs will make permanent indents in the
carpet, ruining it. 

There exist retractable wheels, used on industrial carts, which you use
only when moving the item. The rest of the time they are out of the way.
