DIY alignment turntable plates

Always have redundant backup car support system to prevent injury or death.

These alignment turntables work so well I can roll front tires back and forth.

Great concept! I'd spill the bearings all over the place,lol.

But you have me thinking, cut 2 10" od circles and 2 14" od circles, put the ball spacer plate with bearings in between, then weld some clips on the 14" hanging over the 10" so clumbsy me don't spill them.

One more homemade tool to put on the to do list, thanks

I like it! For the past five years, I've used two 1-foot square floor tiles sandwiched together with a layer of grease between them under each front wheel.

How thick (heighth) are they?

Come on now tell use the truth your wife kicked your ars for cutting up that cutting board!

But honestly, that is the last material you should be using a nice knife on so hopefully you move up to a real cutting board.

Turntable Version2

Improved 20* print out to easily verify angle when doing Caster.

Think I will spring for the 1/2" Delrin ball bearings next time. I can see bearing wear from the 3/8" balls.

I like to settle suspension and roll tires back and forth frequently before collecting data.
