    its obviously a large plate that attaches to something needing to spin and rotate. but its huge. what would you use this for? do you have anything that spins on one of these things?

    Bobski- this one I know. Ever see a stand for a TV or similar item that had a table you could turn? That joins the turnable part to the base.

    SSGSF- I have been a reader of the Bobski list for a number of years now. Bobski has been working through what seems to be a small airplane hangar of odd things his father left when he passed away.

    It has been a challenge to identify many/ most, and it is something ya just can't Google. But by tapping the combined experience/ knowledge of a LOT of folks on a forum, sometimes things actually get identified.

    Yes , this is low end hardware found in many economical furniture pieces..! Stools , TV swivels , etc..! This type of hardware can range from $60--$600 ..!

    This would be dependent on gross weight capacities..! :)

    Sorry Bobsky...! :eek:

    I thought of a swivel for a television, too.

    I find these threads very fun.

    Willshoum is correct. It's a swivel for a boat seat.

    With a little creativity , there could be many applications for such hardware.! Being a furniture designer and builder , I've even used similar hardware for a turn-table on a very large teak table..! Th center piece 5ft. Dia. On a 10ft. Dia. Table , makes things easier to pass..!

    those swivel plates come in many different sizes and are used in many different applications depending on their size and weight capacity.

    Chair.
    Think of the old man, cigar hanging from the corner of his mouth, he swivels his chair from the television and hollers "Mable, get me another beer!". Then swivels quickly back around so as not to miss what the A TEAM is up to.
    Cause you know it'll be never be seen on television again. You can't miss a second.
