Hi All....I was looking for some wheely bars to buy for a 10" meade sct tripod.
I found JMI and the like over in the states but nothing here in Oz.
Postage might be excessive for such heavy items
Has anyone bought or knows of a supplier here in Oz?

I built my own wheeley bars (for want of a better word) for my 10" LX200GPS. Take a look here for a pic that might give you some ideas:
The base board was on good quality castors, located under the tripod feet. I also used leveling bolts to level the tripod up perfectly prior to polar aligning the scope.

Thanks for the helpful replies
I don't have the time for building one right now
So I might contact Bintel

But yours looks pretty good Dean
Maybe I'll follow your lead there
God Bless Ebay for cheap wheels and castors

I actually still have the base board if you want it. I sold the Lx200GPS not that long ago, but had to ship it to WA. I shipped the leveling bolts and the castors with the scope, but not the actual reinforced base board.
You could easily add three bunnings castors to it and you'd be on your way.
