This review is from: Hillsdale Furniture Montello Backless Swivel Counter Stool - KD
Pros: Well made parts. big comfy seats, perfect height.
Can be lowered an inch if you take out the swivel part and make it a stationary seat. Price ($100) shipped is impossible to beat.
You need to break in the seat before it swivels good and a little more relaxed vinyl
Cons: Assembly instructions stink! Seriously, who wrote them? Follow which bolts and screws you need to do the assembly and then assemble in the following order:
loosely assemble step 2 first, then assemble to step 1 and tighten bolts.
As for the rest, make sure to very thin drill pilot holes when mounting into the wood which you need to use a power tool for. They say turn it by hand, but thats impossible as there is no pilot holes! Additionally, 1 screw couldnt reach deep enough to the wood and never caught on. Use 1 1/4 inch sheetrock screw to make the distance and secure the wood to the swivel frame.
BUY BEARING GREASE. The ball bearings in the swivel mechanism was not greased which will inevitably casuse rough spin and faster wear out. A very generous application of bearing grease around the bearing track took care of that and now after being spun a bit is much much better.
Other Thoughts: Outside of the small gripes, I would totally buy more of these if I had a place to put them.
Power drill, 1.25" sheetrock screw, thick bearing grease.
Also a 5/32 hex head bit saves time during assembly, but be sure to hand tighten everything.
