Where to find table leg glides for vintage kitchen dinettes — including NOS

IFSCO-Chair-glides-ad-vintageWe already know that IFSCO Industries, Inc. is one of the few places you can find midcentury furniture leg ferrules and vintage vinyl to repair your retro dinette sets, but the company also makes many varieties chair glides. Company president Tim Kasper tells me they have been manufacturing glides for vintage dinette chairs, tables and other furniture in house since 1946. He also let me in on a little secret — the company has a stash of NOS chair glides that they produced in house over the last 20-40 years. If you have a vintage dinette set that is missing some chair feet, try contacting IFSCO Industries, Inc. to see if they have a match.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have looked for a long time for what I find is known as a “Floor Saver Siamese Sockette” for my 60-year-old dinette. This company even has the “Spherettes” that I need for my vintage aluminum patio table.

    What a great day this is.

      I, too, have been looking for replacement glides for 1970’s metal ice cream chairs. I scrolled through the catalog not expecting to see them, and there they were, called simease sockets! I’ll have to unearth the chairs and measure. I believe the table has the same feet. Thank you!
