Default Bonneville Office Chair

I want to make an office chair with a Bonneville seat, and I was just wondering...

Do you guys think the standard gas operated 5 leg wheel thingy is big enough to hold a bonneville seat without falling over? I have a spare one so I would like to use it....

Yeah I saw that....I don't think my base sticks out that far on all the legs. I guess it will be trial and error.

Anyone know what he put under the chair to connect it to the base part?

I sat in that chair recently.

It'* good..but a little crooked. I think the base lined up enough with the seat track to do it..
