Hi Gengis

Have you thought about making one yourself?

We dont use one as I reckon you can only tell if the headbearings are notchy etc if the forks are hanging.

Or have you tried the large plastic lid from a Big tub of Swarfega or similar? I use these as turntables to turh bikes around on their centre stands.They may work as a swivel plate too?
