I got my casters yesterday to build my little body dolly cart, not doing a full cart just a piece for the front to bolt into my front frame mounts and then one for the rear, anyway my question is how thick of square tubing do I need to buy so I don't have to spend a ton but also be confident the stands are plenty sturdy. I wish I was a metal guy so I didn't have to ask rookie question like this but I'm not. Would a 14g walled milled steel tubing be thick enough? Like a 1" x .0750, or should I get thicker steel?

Thick enough for me. I've been welding for 30+ years but I would probably use a larger tube.
What size would you recommend? Soon as I can figure it out I'm going to hit the steel yard

I went ahead and got 2" x 2" 11g tubing. Thanks for the input!

You already got it, but I'm a fabrication guy, and I would have said 2"x2" 10 or 11 ga. (1/8" wall basically)
