Heavy duty swivel
I went overkill and I was glad I did. I only needed it for a Lazy Susan but it was rather large because it was going on a 7 foot round table expect to have years of working reliability

Great quality produce
I used two of these to build 2'x4' turntable for assembling and finishing 'cornhole' game boards. Saves miles of walking around and waiting for paint to dry so boards can be turned. These sturdy units handle the weight and swivel with ease.

Woodworking Experience:
Does the job well
Bought to replace a standard swivel on a large old club chair. The old piece was the spring type, and the spring broke. I opted for the heavy duty part to replace as the chair is quite large and heavy, felt this part would be a better match. It was easy to install with just a power screwdriver. BTW I am a 62-year old female with no woodworking experience (but likes fixing things.)

Woodworking Experience:
Ordered the wrong size
I wanted to get the strongest I could find for a replacement. So I ordered this extra heavy duty one. I did not realize that is was larger than the one I needed for a replacement, so I ordered the heavy duty one because it was the right size. I refused the extra heavy duty one and the post office returned it. I have not received reimbursement yet but they said they would do that.

We bought two new chairs with full electronic controls but unfortunately they aren't available with swivel bases. Using Tee nuts from below a 3/4" 31" diameter ply base I mounted this bad boy using 4@ 5/16" Dia 3/4" L bolts (after slight reaming of the existing square mounting holes). Now I'll mount customized steel (angle) across the top of the swivel base to receive the untouched stock frame of the chair, set the limit blocks to prevent the cord from wrapping up, lock down the wire and then settle in. This will all add about 1.5" max height to the chair but I expect this to be even better for getting in and out of the seat anyway.

Father is 83 yrs old in 2 days and sits in his recliner 12-15 hrs a day. Within a year of purchase of his recliner he wore out the bearings in the base by swiveling left and then right and so on ALL day long. So for his birthday am hoping that with proper installation and greasing, that this one will keep him swiveling.
Vincent M on Sep 16, 2019

I have not received this swivel yet. hoping it is strong. needed a replacement for my 10 year old lazyboy chair. My chair began losing its marbles...I think maybe because the chair realized the one sitting in it was losing his marbles. anyway hope its stronger than the one it had.

Need to repair a swivel, gliding Adirondack chair. The center weight capacity is greater than my needs but the next version down was under capacity for this application. If possible, can you find or make a version with elongated, predrilled holes for more flexibility with various size dimension applications. The lighter version of this product had this design feature.

What additional parts will be needed with this, when turning an upholstered chair into a swivel chair?
Kristen L on Jan 14, 2017
Where do you center the plywood so the recliner won't tip over?
Donna B on Aug 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The center of gravity (CG) of your body is approximately behind the bellybutton in the middle of your body. Set the recliner half way back and have someone eyeball the location. That should be a good place to center the plywood (and swivel) under. It won't be real critical because the one used works for all body shapes.
how can I just get the wood base ?
Ken P on Oct 24, 2016
I have a Lazy Boy chair, model Rowan that reclines and rocks. I want to add a swivel base to it. Will this part work? The part # is 088123 (007) from Lazy Boy. Thank You
Mary E on Oct 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: some mechanisms have their own leg base. If so, you will need to fabricate a base that combined with the swivel equals the height of the current rocker. If the chair has a base combined with a rocker mechanism you can replace it with a 12x12 spacer board that combined with swivel equals the current rocker height.
Can this heavy duty swivel be used on a recliner that raises and has a tilt up assistance feature?
Nan F on Jan 30, 2017
does screw come with this swivel?

BEST ANSWER: No they do not. It can fit a host of different screws so it would be hard to know which ones you need
Can this hardware be raised to a higher level?
L E on Oct 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you're asking whether the distance between the two rotating plates can be increased, the answer is NO. Think of a chair - one plate mounts to the base of the chair, the other to the bottom of the seat. The seat is then able to rotate around the base of the chair.
can this be used under a 36 inch table top to create a large diameter lazy susan type device?

Do u have a 12inch swivel for chair?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes I do and it works better then the original. I did have to elongate the mounting holes match up with the chair mounting holes.
Can this be used effectively on recliners?
V Z on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought two of these to replace "ancient" swivels on two upholstered swivel chairs in our living room. They work great and are so solid and easy to turn. I would imagine that they would work on swivel recliners if the springs are independent of the swivel mechanism. I suggest that you look at the existing mechanism to see what it looks like. These swivels strictly "swivel" and do not "rock/reline".
Will it work for a 26" piece of granite for a lazy Susan?
Richard S on Mar 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It should. I used it to change a rocker/recliner to a swivel rocker/recliner without too much trouble. I just do not know how you would mount the granite to the swivel.
I have 2 LazyBoy rocker recliners. Can a swivel base be added?
Randall S on Aug 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is possible but you would have to construct a base, possibly fro 3/4 plywood or metal. Then , after attaching
that medium to the chair you could add the swivel to the bottom of the plywood. We have used both plywood and metal in our shop for these conversions
Good luck

I purchased an 8" swivel base to convert my club chair. Dont i need a ring base to attach the swivel mechanism?
Ann S on Mar 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am assuming that your chair is already a swivel. If so you can simply mount it in place of the old one with no additional parts. If it not already a swivel, then you would have to have a flt surface between the top and the bottom pieces. Once you have that simply mount the new swivel to the two pieces.
Wish I had a picture, then it would be easier to comment.
Good luck

Will this work on our older recliner/rocker style 10-304, ack no. 007050564 ?
Pat W on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I can't find your rocker/recliner searching google but I did use it on Lane rocker/recliner by first mounting a 3/4" pc of plywood to the chair frame , cut in 2' x 2' (sold in this precut size by Lowe's) along with a furniture grade circular approximately 2' furniture grade precut w/rounded edge pine, (again sold at Lowe's) and sandwiched the swivel in between. Works great. It does lift the height of the chair approximately 2 1/2".
My leather chair is not a swiveling chair and it's too low to the ground. Can we get a heavy duty swivel base to connect to the 4 legs?
LILY M on Nov 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will need two pieces of plywood about the size of the chair base. One piece attaches to the chair base. Then attach the swivel to that piece. The final plywood then attaches to the bottom of the swivel.
Can I use this on a motorized recliner?
John C on Apr 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I can't answer without seeing the underside of the recliner. Just turn it over and look at the base. If there is a supportive base on which to mount the swivel, the fact that the recliner is motorized will not be a factor. Hope it works for you.
I need to make a 4' round rotating stage for 1 to 2 people stand on and spin freely, do you think this would work?
Ray C on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Ray, I have been using the heavy duty swivel to build pedestals with a revolving top to use in trick horse training. Typically I build a pedestal base the attach a 16" diametet round top using the swivel. But a few years ago Zi built a much larger version for two horses to step up on facing each other. The round top was 24" in diameter made by laminating five layers of 3/4" plywood circles together. To keep the top level when a 1000 lb. horse stepped up out towards the edge I mounted six roller wheels on the perimeter.. Because the top was made nearly four inches thick for asthetic reasons I was able to 'hide' the wheels up inside the thick top.
There is a difference in humans and horses and that is you can tell the people involved to carefully place their feet and balance their weight .. however, a four ft diameter swivel top will put a lot of torque on the 7" diameter bearing race if the people are not very careful.. These swivels are very strong and probably will hold up,
But having the caster wheels out on the underside of the perimeter will eliminate any possible tipping of the rotation section..

Can this be used on a Flexsteel recliner?
Ron P on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is heavy duty enough that I have not had any problem with the boat seats I installed it under. I do safety patrols for the US Coast Guard Auxiliary and experience a lot of very rough water.

I believe the unit would work well under a recliner.

Will your swivel FIt a living room chair with a base about 2 feet 6 inches Square? it has never had a swivel on it before but I want to make it into a swivel chair
Beverly B on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If it has legs, you could remove them and build a swivel base out of 2 sheets of plywood with the swivel between. If you just add the swivel to the current base, the chair would be higher off the ground and might be uncomfortable.
Will the chair not swivel when it is reclined?
Connie A on Jan 24, 2016

traceeb66 on Oct 13, 2018
