I'd be able to support (in tension) a rotating slighly eccentric load
with a linear bearing. It seems to me that a 2" diameter solid rod
sandwiched into the bearing by means of clamping collars would keep
the whole affair up and allow it to rotate. It seems to me, that
linear bearings that can recieve a 2" diameter x ~6" round can handle
some eccentric loading. Some of these bearings are a bit pricy but are
real stiff and I'm thinking can handle the detail in a compact manner.
My previous "lazy Susan" idea was crude I think.
