    Teflon sliders/glides

    Can someone tell me where to find Teflon glides that are just plain planks of Teflon without felt or foam. I see furniture glides and sliders all over the internet, but I know that in the past we used to just use plain Teflon slides when moving large marble busts and sculptures in museums.

    McMaster.com sells Teflon blocks. Type teflon in the search and you will find what they offer.

    Good luck

    A commonly used alternative for Teflon (Dupont's brand name for PTFE - Polytetrafluoroethylene) are various forms of UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene). It is way cheaper and has similar properties. The McMaster Carr catalog is a convenient source for purchasing it in smaller quantities.
