The caster mounting comprises a canposed in spaced relation to the bottom of the tilever-type mounting bracket l2 formed with a container. The side wall section and bottom trough-shaped recess I3 to receive and engage section are joined together, by crimping or other the annular flange 9. The upper end of the means, to provide an annular fla ge p j ct mounting bracket I2 is provided with one or more downwardly below the bottom section. Three or bosses I4 which are formed to snugly engage more casters are arranged in equally spaced rewithin the annular groove formed by the bead lation around the bottom of the container, each The mounting bracket is also provided ster o prising a mounting bracket for nwith a pair of side flanges 'l6-l6 formed with gagement W1th the contameli a swlvel bracket apertures to receive bolts or screws I"! which Journaled 111 the mountlng bracket, and a roller serve to secure the mounting bracket to the side journaled on the swivel bracket.

I claim as my invention:

1. In a caster mounting adapted to support relatively thin wall metal containers of the type in which a disc-shaped bottom section is crimped to the lower edge of a tubular side wall section to form an annular depending flange, the tubular side wall section being offset intermediate its ends to form an annular bead portion of trough-shape section, a cantilever-type caster mounting bracket for engagement against said side wall section, the lower end of said mounting bracket being formed to provide a U-shaped recess to receive and engage said annular depending flange, a pair of side flanges formed, on opposite sides of said mounting bracket for bolted engagement to said tubular side wall section, ridge portions formed on said flanges for seated engagement in said bead portion, a swivel bracket mounted in a bore formed in the outer end of said mounting bracket, and a roller journaled on said swivel bracket.

2. The combination with a relatively thin wall metal container including a disc-shaped bottom section, a tubular side wall section crimped to the periphery of said bottom section to form an annular depending flange, the tubular side wall section being ofiset intermediate its ends to form an annular bead portion of trough-shape section, of a cantilever caster-type mounting bracket engaged against said side wall section, the

lower end of said mounting bracket being formed with a U-shape recess to receive and engage said annular depending flange, a pair of side flanges formed on opposite sides of said mounting bracket for bolted engagement to said tubular side wall section, ridge portions formed on said side flanges for seated engagement in said bead portion, a swivel bracket mounted in a bore formed in the outer end of said mounting bracket, and a roller journaled on said swivel bracket.
