I've been making platters and spindle bearings for my own use for a number of years now. The platter is a 1.5" thick acrylic with 10 pockets of lead shot around the outside edge of the platter. The spindle bearing is a stainless steel center shaft set in a UHMW sleeve in a brass houseing. The stainless steel shaft sets on a UHMW button, on a stainless steel ball bearing that set on more UHMW. There is no metal on metal contact.
All the work is done in my shop using a CNC flat bed router and a precision lathe. I've been refining the design over the last couple of years and I've prety much got all the bugs worked out of it. I should have a finished unit to photograph in a couple of weeks. If you are interested I could send shop drawings and photos. .
