Do you know a source for chair glides that can be used for the emco ( good form) aluminum chair?

The chair legs are 1 inch square with a 5/8 to 3/4 inch hole in the bottom. The original glides were metal and were held in by a compressible rubber gromett. The only chair glides I have seen made today are metal inserts for square or round chairs with a screw in metal glide. I wonder what replacement type would be most suitable for these chairs

Chair Glides and Furniture feet can be a challenge to replace. There are literally hundreds of different sizes and styles available. The 1 inch square outside tube dimension is common and you should have several styles of Chair Glide to choose from.

Here is a source with a complete selection of Glides:

Try posting a request on their forum and you can get specifics about the item that will work.

You can stick tennis balls on the tips. All the chair replacement slides I order come either from Grainger (grainger.com) or Promaco.
