Hi Folks. Just thought would throw this in for people who don't know how to install a Lazy Susan Bearing! Their are different types of course. This is one I built so I can watch a movie on TV and do my painting. Well, let your imagination runaway Ha! Any questions? Post them and someone will answer. Oh, by the way? This is by all means, my way of doing it. I know there are other ways for sure. Find one that you can do! Enjoy!

At the end of the photos I also have a link to the PDF doc so you can download the steps and take it out to your shop to build.

Hi Michael,
This is a perfect solution for painting parts evenly! Where did you purchase the orange triangles? Do they have a name?

I got them at Lowes. They are called Painters' Tripods.

You can get them at Home Depot.

If you search google for Painters Pyramid you'll find lots of variations including several DIY versions.

I didn't find them to be very useful for making toys. Primarily because for them to do you any good you need to not care about the marks the leave in the wet paint. Also they are quite slippery and smaller toys or parts slide off if bumped. Yet for the right project they might be the perfect they might be just the thing. Just not for anything I do.

You can make them from a square of wood with a nail through the center.

I have drilled holes in my Lazy Susan's to accommodate bigger and different size dowels with a small tappered point on the ends of dowels. Someone in this forum gave me the idea. I use an electric pencil sharpener to taper the ends. It will work if you have a smaller hole in your project. For the Play Pals set that I have, it works really well. 
I haven't really used those Tripods, and the paint I am using is water based so it will wash off. They slide a lot unless you secure them.
