Hello fellow Woodworkers! As I showed on another thread, I'm working on some feet for my daughters second hand hope chest and I am looking for some of these little metal buttons (to the left of the wooden foot, on the round drill press table.) that go on the bottom of the feet. They are about the size of a quarter, maybe a little larger. And they have 4 prongs that get hammered into the feet. Anyone knows what they are called and where I might get them?

Thanks in advance!!

They are called chair glides. I expect you'll have trouble finding an exact replacement. But any big-box store or hardware store will have the newer version, which has a single nail attached to a nylon button.

+1 to any non-metal. Also, the hard plastic ones aren't much better. I like the thick felt ones but they need replacing every few years as they get dirt embedded.

Thank you all! DonkeyHody, for the name of them!! Found ones that will work at both HD and Lowes. I just didn't know what they were called, to search for them. I haven't found any exactly like the old ones. But I'll just replace all four with a newer style. PERFECT! Thank you all!!

PS. Vince, I know all about those felt ones. After pulling the carpet out of our living room and putting new laminates in our living room and kitchen, I have those under everything!! But my daughter bedrooms, where I'm sure this chest will go, is carpeted. I need the metal or plastic ones there!!
