SWIVEL STEM PLASTIC CASTERS
Care For A Little Light Swiveling?
These light-duty plastic casters are on swiveling stems and have dual 1-1/2" dia x 5/16" wheels in 1-7/8" x 1-3/16" hemispheric housings. Stems are striated steel, 3/8" dia x 3/4" long. We're thinking these would be fine for your average chair. Our each is a bag of (4).

LAZY SUSAN TURNTABLE BEARING, 12"
LAZY SCOTT BEARINGS
Never seemed fair to nail the "lazy" tag so permanently on the "Susans" but that probably has no "bearing" on the issue. Also called turntable bearings, they are the square or circular flat ball bearing devices YOU bolt between two flat objects to achieve rotation. Like that spinning center section of a Chinese restaurant table. We had these in surplus once and they were quite popular. To our chagrin, we discovered they could be bought commercially for the same price. So we did. The 4" version is rated for a 300lb. load and the 12" (round) for 1000lbs.

SINGLE SHEAVE PULLEY
PULL, PULL, PULL YOUR BOAT
A nice pulley just ready to be combined into the block and tackle you need for tiny jobs, like trimming your bonsai trees or hauling your model boat out of the pond. Get this block with (1) sheave and rig up whatever you need. Each block has an aluminum frame about 3–1/2” long with “S” hooks on each end. The sheaves, or wheels are about 2” dia x 1/4” wide, with a “V” groove that looks perfect to handle 1/8” or smaller Venetian blind cord. These dudes are perfect for demonstrating mechanical advantage in the physics lab!! But not for heavy lifting.

2-1/2" BRASS BALL SWIVEL PLATE CASTERS
Have A Ball
The ball casters are great swivelers and quite snazzy looking, too. Seen on your better chairs everywhere. These are brass plated on 1-1/2" square mounting plates with 3/16" holes at the corners. You pick the 2" or 2-1/2" dia versions.

WHITE SILICONE BELTS 4" X 3/32"
Bunch-o-Belts
These translucent silicone O-rings are 3/32" thick and measure 4" dia. Nice belts for science-project motors and even nicer for our slingshot needs. Crafters will see jewelry material that the metal-detectors won't care about.

WHITE PLASTIC LAWNMOWER WHEEL 6"
THE WHEELS ON THE BUS
Would be yellow, no? Yes, but you could put these nifty white plastic wheels on anything you like. You've seen lawnmower wheels? That's what these are like. Measure 6" dia x 1-7/16" thick with hard black rubber treads, a 1/2" axle bore and a 13/16" x 1/4" hub on the opposite side.

$3.50 EACH
SILICONE O-RINGS
O, What A Ring
These translucent silicone O-rings are 1/8" thick and measure 3-1/2" dia. Nice belts for science-project motors and even nicer for your slingshot needs. Crafters will see jewelry material that the metal-detectors won't care about.

3-WHEEL DOLLY
Hello Dolly
Good-bye backaches. Save your sacroiliac with a 3-wheeled professional mover's dolly. It measures 6-3/8" wide between a trio of swivel casters with 1-9/16" x 11/16" wheels, and has a drop-down center and a 1/2" dia hole for permanent attachment to frequently moved items. Steel construction, 110 lb max load (so not piano-duty), and rubber pads above each wheel. Stands 2-1/2" tall. We think ordering (4) would be a good place to start.

One side also has (3) 3/32" ID x 1/8" standoffs along with a 3/16" tooth along one edge. Source and function are unknown but you'll think of something.
