Hardware Update: To Boldly Swivel...
posted on by

We are continually surprised and impressed by the quality and inventiveness of the projects that turn up in our customer reviews, and this week’s top website review is certainly no exception:


Customer Rating:

"A bunch of us are using these to build our TOS [The Original Series] Star Trek replica command chairs.......the swivel return works perfect, thanks for a great product!

It hits on something that we think everyone knows deep down in their heart: when it comes to intergalactic security, the hardware you choose really does make a difference. As a matter of fact, it has us thinking about our 3 Degree Tilt Swivel ad copy. Over the past couple days we’ve been tossing around a few possibilities...

"Whether you’re struggling with a difficult moral conundrum, maneuvering into battle, or just taking a casual cruse to Orgellius II for some badly needed shore leave, you’ll be glad you chose the Deluxe 3 Degree Tilt Swivel from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware. With its built-in back tilt, this starship-class swivel will provide the extra comfort you need, and help you stay relaxed, calm and focused under the most demanding circumstances. You’ll appreciate the smooth ball bearing swivel action when you swing around to accept a fresh cup of coffee from a passing yeoman, or join in a little good-natured sparring with your fellow officers. And when things heat up, the 3 degree tilt swivel won’t let you down. With a squadron of warbirds peppering your forward deflector, the last thing you need is command chair swivel failure. Not a problem, with the 3 degree tilt swivel: its rugged 13 gauge steel construction will stand up to the most violent lurching to and fro and still operate as smoothly and effortlessly as the day you took it out of the box. The swivel’s spring-activated “home” position memory mechanism will keep you front and center for all the action..."
