Desk chair restoration.

I have this old chair, I bought it in England back in 2000 and it was manufactured in Germany, quality chairs are expensive.

I had given it to my watchman to use around 8 years ago, he looked after it well,

The base was too rusted so I bought a new one and casters, also the gas pump was rusted and fell apart when I removed it. I had some black cotton/polyester seat fabric left over from a job and was sufficient to cover the chair, a friend has a sofa business and had his staff recover the chair parts, I spent about 3 hours in total restoring the arm rests.

I'm quite happy with the result, it should serve me well for a few years and is an absolute necessity as I work from home.

Those were 870 for a set of 5, actually cheaper than from AliExpress. Some site called volo I think.

I bought direct from the "importer" who claims to have sourced these from India
any idea if these casters fit this base?

I bought direct, their site looks a bit iffy, but all's well that ends well.

As long as yours are pin type 11mm nominal diameter.
found it. thanks. https://voloshoppe.com/product/heav...s-replacement-rubber-chair-casters-pack-of-5/
I want to change to these from my current black ones as they are starting to leave marks on the tiles when floor is mopped.
They're great for office chair racing too

Direct meaning offline? I'll try to measure the pin. Now I have to look up how to remove the old wheels without breaking anything.
