We have two recliners in the living room; one is on a turntable so you can
just spin around but the other has to be manually wrestled around when the
focus changes from the television to the fireplace. I'd like to get a
turntable to mount the non-turning chair onto but drew a blank at the local
hardware, Home Depot and an Internet search.
Does anyone have any ideas on where to find this? All I need is some sort of
turntable bearing strong enough to hold a couple hundred pounds. I could
attach that to the plywood disk that the chair rests on and mount the whole
thing on another piece of plywood.
Thanks for any clues.

Easy and cheap way out and maybe entertaining, too:
Go to any weekly junque auction and preview what's for sale. You're sure to
find a big old solid chair with all the hardware you need and it will likely
not cost you more than a $deuce. Alternatively, garage sales are great and the
stuff is usually cheaper and better than the auctions.
You bought your big old SUV to haul stuff like this around in, didn't you? Have
No SUV, just a 1984 F-150 for hauling, but you reminded me of an interesting
situation. We split wood for the stove to save on the winter heating bills.
Every year, we split a few extra cords and sell them to help repay our
investment in the log splitter. We don't need the additional chore of
delivering firewood, so we advertise pick-up only and give a good discount
on the wood. I've noticed that most of our customers seem to be guys with
new trucks or SUV's. I think they buy the cheap pick-up wood so they can
tell the wife, "See, honey, I told you that truck would pay for itself."
