Lazy Susan Bearing.

Best to try a bearing factor, although when I asked, they had no idea what a 'lazy Susan bearing' was, they did show me some (can't remember the correct term) suitable bearings. But I finally opted for PTFE instead.

EDIT: I think 'rolling element bearing' may be the correct term for this sort of bearing.

Try woodworking suppliers as they often supply the parts to make lazy susans. Also try eBay and you should be able to come up one of them for about £9.95.

BTW if you use the lazy susan bearing you'll have to add friction pads to stop the base turning too easily.

What are those pads you're using? I'm just using carpet myself, but your mod does look a lot more professional.

They're called " Slide Glides".

I put some washers cut from polythene milk bottles under each to get the right height and screwed them down. The white circles on top of the pads are actually the unused centres from some CD labels. I found that even when I got the pads as close to the right height as possible I needed some fine tuning to get it just right, hence the paper circles. :D
