I can't for the life of me figure this one out -- they appear to be attached by a screw, but it's neither a slotted nor a phillips, and in any event the wheel blocks access to it. I can't seem to just pull it off, either. Any suggestions?


Why do you want to ?



I still don't know why you want to remove them ? are they a later addition ? or were they with the machine as supplied ?

Maybe be a bit careful.

The castors I took off my HMV 160 (because of unbelievably severe woodworm infestation) were actually screwed on.

Yours were screwed on, but the ones initially referred to are pushed into a sleeve that is driven into the legs of the machine. Screwed on casters are not common in the US.
