A universal machine caster insert design for stabilizing and aligning housing frames of electrophotographic printing and copying machines is disclosed. The design of the caster insert combines mounting, stabilizing and leveling capability into a single assembly. As shown in the Figures, the design incorporates an outer ring 1 having an interference fit 2 within the insert bore 3. The internal insert bore 3 may be interchanged to accept a full range of caster stem diameters. A threaded stem 4 provides a means for adjusting the caster inert to stabilize the machine frame against rocking during operation.
