Shop Vac Caster Upgrade

Let’s face it. Shop Vac casters are terrible! The don’t roll or swivel very well and are cheap plastic and loud.

In today’s episode, I am going to show you how I upgraded my shop vac with some awesome new casters. After searching around for some new ones that could just plug into the holes of the shop vac and failing to find what I needed, I decided to modify the base of my shop vac in order to put new and improved casters on them. Enjoy!
