Yep.  All excellent things to know.  Also, it would be nice to get an
idea of the thickness of the metal.  I've never seen one of these so I
have no idea how to fabricate them (at the detail level).  Once we get
some dimensions, I have access to a pretty good shop at our
Makerspace, the Columbus Idea Foundry.  I also have multiple VT52s I'd
love to put on wheels!  One source I have for chair bases is Ohio
State University surplus.  They are constantly selling retired
furniture for cheap.  There's also an Office Furniture place down the
block from the Idea Foundry that's about to close to be demolished for
new development.  I'll bet chairs are cheap there!

Thanks, Barry!
