I'm designing a chair from scratch and I'd like it to have a swivel base. For this my initial idea was to press fit a bearing (thrust bearing) in the shaft of the base and connect the seat by press fitting a small shaft through the middle.
But I'm having my doubts if this can handle the load of a person sitting on the chair.
Looking for a purpose built or better suited bearing for this.
Also opened to suggestions for a better way to build this.
