This is a smaller lazy suzi I make for spray finish to small bowls etc, it is the hard drive from any old home computer, the bearing is a real gem and will spin forever with a light flick and can hold a good load. The bearing sits up about 5mm above the disk and is perfect to sit a plate over. I have made several so I can spray a piece with say a base, lid and maybe a stand all at the same time.
Well we have all done a version of a steady so I thought I would throw mine in too. The main thing with these is to be able to fit them up real quick, I used a builders angle bracket form the hardware store and a 60mm square HD washer which fits exactly under my lathe runners. The rest is bits of scrap and is easily picked up from the photos. May be of interest to someone considering making one
