For anyone that is interested in mounting amp casters on their DT50

WARNING!!! There was an error in the original template. The mounting holes are 1/4" in diameter but a 1/16" Drill bit should be used to drill a pilot hole for the mounting screws. I have uploaded the corrected templates.

I made a template with Adobe Illustrator to aid in mounting the Ernie Ball Pop Out amp casters. The mounting holes may line up with the Ernie Ball Standard Mount amp casters as well as other brands of standard mount and pop out amp casters. Disclaimer: I made the template using, and only had the Ernie Ball Pop Out casters to try.

I added the image below and have attached a .png, .jpg, and Illustrator .eps version of the template. Take your pick. This worked really well when printing with and specifying 4x6 photo paper. It made a nice sturdy template. If you print on larger paper verify the printer properties are not set to "fit to page" as this will distort the image size. If you're using larger paper with the Windows XP Photo Printing Wizard Select 4x6 in. cutout prints. Always pop the casters out of the base and sit the base on top of the template and make sure everything lines up before you tape them down and start drilling. Hope this makes things easier, it definitely did for me.

I bought a set of Fender casters from Thomman on-line and fitted them to the 212 today.  That's made moving it a lot easier

With the Fender casters the hole required for the caster cup and base plate to fit into requires a 14mm drill bit

I hear you on that one. Reading your post made me go back and look at my templates. There was an error and a pretty big one. The mounting holes for the caster base are 1/4" and I said use a 1/4" drill bit when I should have said 1/16". I updated what I posted

Where on the bottom of my DT25 should I install the casters (relative to the position of the rubber feet)?  Should the rubber feet come off?

As an alternative to the Ernie Ball casters, IMHO these are the shiznit (I've used 'em for years on my Vetta amp and extension cab):  http://mesa.stores.yahoo.net/43tracremcas.html

Pricey($79) but they are easily removable.

I know this is an old post... etc.. but just keeping the topic relevant for others...

anyone know of any "drop in" type caster replacements? meaning just using the existing rubber foot holes? i'm not that handy at tools/measurements etc... but would like to get some casters installed.

yep... a little different approach...$20 and they don't alter your amp one bit...1000 lbs rating...

haha you're killing me dude! I mostly just want to move the amp around in my room... that would be good if i wanted to move it in and out of vehicles and venues though.

Well, I do a lot of that...just move the amps around in the basement...The thing about these dollys is that the wheels are freaking awesome...They don't rattle at all and the 4 inches or so of lift is nice too...

The Line 6 snap in casters are pretty nice...I have them on my SV MK1...I never use them but they are good wheels and you can pop them out pretty easily...
