I found a similar solution.  I use a old metal office desk, the kind with 
the simulated wood top.     It is good sized and works well for holding all 
of the equipment for the operating position, but when I had to get to the 
wires in the back it was a real nightmare.  One day while wondering around 
my local Ace Hardware store, not looking for anything in particular, I came 
across these small, three wheel casters.  They are like a small metal bowl 
with three casters on it (they had a couple of different sizes as well).  I 
bought four of the smallest ones (about $5 each I think) and I put one of 
these under each of the desk legs and now I can pull the whole thing out 
from the wall no problem.
