Ok   here is my situation.  I am wheelchair dependent and have recently purchased my first telescope.  I purchased new a Orion SkyView Pro 8" Equatorial Reflector Telescope.  It arrived and I immediately realized that I will need a dolly mechanism to move that around my patio area.  I looked for a model specific dolly and found nothing.  I looked for a universal rig and found they were all about 400.00.  So, here is what I looked as my best answer.  Remove the toes from the bottom of the tripod legs and install rolling/lockable casters.  I found a set of 3 casters delivered to me for about 60.00.  I then found the toes are epoxy glued to the stainless steel legs.  I will need to cut off the toes to do what I am thinking.  The attached picture hopefully explains my idea.

My offer of 100.00 is to satisfy the program requirement for a price.  I am open to options, to include purchasing a complete tripod.  With all that shared.  Does anyone have a set of Orion SkyView Pro 8" Equatorial Reflector Telescope tripod legs (only) for sale?    I am in Jacksonville FL.   I am also open to other ideas as to options.  Thanks in advance.
