JMI Custom Wheeley Bars with Standard Wheels
Do you wish you had an easy way to move your tripod or pier mounted telescope from garage to patio or driveway? Wheeley Bars were created for just that purpose. The sturdy base with locking wheels and leveling bolts allows you to move, lock and level the complete telescope assembly with ease.
Standard Wheeley Bars are designed to be used on hard flat surfaces only. With the optional large-wheel upgrade (this model includes the upgraded 4" wheels), great care in maneuvering and ideal conditions, they can be used on grass, dirt and gravel surfaces. Wheeley Bars are generally designed to be used with the tripod legs almost fully retracted to reduce the overall width.
A Word of Warning: The heavier the telescope mounted on the Wheeley Bars, the more careful one must be in moving the complete system by pulling or pushing below the center of gravity. JMI is not responsible for incorrect loading or operation.
To be sure that your mount will fit a particular Wheeley Bar product, it may be necessary to verify the tip-to-tip distance of your mount. Usually, this measurement is made with the legs of a tripod fully retracted (the shortest length) and spread out completely. Alternately, you can measure at your preferred viewing height, but be sure to allow for the height of the Wheeley Bars (listed with each product). The tip-to-tip distance is the measurement from the outside edge of the end of a tripod leg or pier foot (where it touches the ground) to the outside edge of another tripod leg or pier foot as illustrated below.
For Custom Wheeley Bars, to be sure that your mount will fit into the receptacles, we also need to know leg or foot diameter and tip style. For instance, on the mounts shown above (numbered from left to right), the following applies:
