I need to select a bearing type for a rotary table. The table will be an aluminum plate, 48 inch dia 75 lbs, and will need to rotate at 60rpm max. I would like the plate to be supported by just the bearing. would a slewing ring be best or can I use an angular contact bearing or even just a regular large ball bearing? There won't be much load on the table top, maybe 10 lbs max static load.
