Excellent piece of hardware
I used this for a 30" lazy Susan made from padauk, black walnut, and Patagonian rosewood. I wasn't sure if it would be stable due to the large size, but it came out well and is very stable and works perfectly on our oversized dining room table.
My giant lazy Susan came out great and is quite stable even at 30" Dia.

Perfect product for making a carousel.
These are perfect. While they advertise for handling a lot of weight, it works equally well with very little weight. I am very pleased that I purchased this item. I use then for a corner cabinet and it makes everything accessible.

Built great, performs great. Worth every cent.
Worked great for my application! Such a smooth and quiet revolution. It handles a fair amount of weight with no interruption of motion.

Rockler had the item that we have been looking for. We used Rockler back in the 1980's to make our own kitchen cabinets. They always had all the supplies we needed.
B O on Jun 26, 2017
I checked out a YouTube video of this item to verify how "Heavy Duty" it was. In the video I could tell it was very well made and truly "Heavy Duty" so I decided to go ahead and buy it.
I mean to make it easier to get to the back liquor bottles that are kept in the cabinet above my refrigerator. The cabinet is a 20 " wide on each side of the middle upright and 24" deep. The weight and the number of bottles needs extra support.

Looking for a solid and smooth lazy susan mechanism to use as cake turntables. We have used other types and the construction of this particular item is what drew my attention, of course once we are done making our turntables will we really be able to understand the value of this mechanism. Stay tuned...

What size screws to attach the hardware to the lazy susan?
Maryland DIY'er on Sep 5, 2016
Does not turn easely, and is noisy. Is it defective, whatever is the screw on the side for?
Gordon R on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I thought the screw on the side of the frame was a locking screw. It is not. I believe it adjusts the side pressure on the bearings. If you made the same mistake I did and rotated the screw fully counterclockwise, it allows the bearings to travel too freely, causing noise and excess friction. To correct, turn the screw fully clockwise until tight and rotate several turns. If the travel is not smooth, turn the screw very slightly (maybe 1/16 turn) counter clockwise, and rotate several turns again. I was able to get the travel back to about as smooth as when I took it out of the wrapper with one such adjustment. Rockler really should indicate that this screw is not for user adjustment on the product packaging. Alternatively, the manufacturer should lock the screw at the factory if it does not need further adjustment. Note that I did my adjustment without any load on the bearings. I may need to adjust it again once I get the rotating table assembled and loaded.
Could this support a 54" diameter platform?
Kitty H on Nov 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I happen to have an engineering background and the answer to your question is not related to the Lazy Susan as it can support 330 LB. the issue is about the stability of the turntable - in order for the turn table to be stable with FOOD on it, it should have a radius of at LEAST 50% of the rotating table. that still would not guaranty stability if heavy items are placed on the perimeter of the rotating plate.
it looks to me that you might need a custom made unit.

Good Luck

What is the inside diameter? 17 & 3/8 is the recorded diameter. I'm assuming this the external diameter.
Louis D on Oct 12, 2018
I have a 24 inch piece of quartz, shaped into an octagon. I'm looking for something to swivel this lazy susan on top of my new quartz kitchen island. Would the bottom of this swivel scratch the quartz? Does it have rubber bumpers? Thank you!
Vicki N on May 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This bearing has six white plastic "buttons" on both top and bottom; the buttons are pretty stiff but certainly are resilient enough to provide good contact. I originally bought the bearing to make a wood lazy susan, but the bearing works a lot better if it has significant weight on it. I tried it with a piece of quartz about 24 inches square, and it works well with that weight.
I would like to put a glass top on lazy susan swivel, and wondering how is the aluminum finish?
Namhi P on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: it is a satin finish but would require some rubber feet to mount to the Lazy susan in order to set the glass top on it and not have it slide around
Will this support a 16" round piece of granite ??
Sandi on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm assuming it isn't real thick, so yes I think it will support a 16" round piece of granite.
Would it support a 40 inch wooden top?
Sandor G on Jan 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As far as weight, there is no problm. as far as stability, you have 11" on outside the circul which may cause it to tip over if items are not evenly distributed
Do I need to replace all hardware if the ball bearings are worn out?
Wijdan R on Oct 27, 2016

Will this work for a chair and 200lb body ?
Alan J on May 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It specifies that it’s rated for over 300 lbs. but you can only attach one side of the bearings via screws. You need to secure the other side otherwise it may tip off the bearings. I used a metal rod in a Teflon tube. The rod was centered and freely rotated and held the Susan base to my rotating tree slab.
Is there a way to secure the Susan ? We want to use it so that the susan can be stable under a slot machine
Pamela C on Feb 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That's a very good swivel I should support the slot machine no problem, there are screw holes on both the inner and outer rings the outer ones are if you to add a wooden disk to increase the diameter of the swivel for more stability
How do I make my lazy Susan higher?
K M on Jul 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe there about 8 attachment locations to the mounting surface. Make "stand-offs". Purchase a wood dowel rod approximately 3/4 inch in diameter. Cut to lengths you want to raise the lazy Susan, say 1/2 inch, make 8 pieces. Bore a 3/16 or 1/4 inch hole in the center of each. Obtain appropriate length (flat head) screws, put the wood stand-offs under the lazy Susan and attach to surface.
I want to put a 36" granite top on this. How much weight is this rated for?
