I don't think ours has plastic at the bottom. We only flipped it once to look at what was scraping but I think it is a ring of wood with bare metal on the bottom. The bare metal ring is what scrapes across the floor. I'll have to look a little closer this weekend.

I believe you'll find it to be black plastic and too thin to support anything substantial.
Carry on, regardless..................

I just ran out and looked at my chair. It has a  black plastic ring, like Bob said, on the floor that runs through six ball bearing clamps which are attached to a wood base ring. We have never seen any scratch marks on the floor from sliding the chair. But we have the older fake stone look floor, not the wood look. I would guess one could remove the plastic ring and clamps in a couple of minutes. Then get six wheels and install them into the wood ring. One would still have to tie down the chair for travel.

Tom, you're saying you have plastic that touches the floor? Ours is bare black metal. We rolled it on its back to measure for padding. We'll double check today but it sounds like we are missing a piece. That would explain the difficulty sliding it. We were surprised it was so hard to move. We didn't remember yours scraping like ours does. Oh well, another great excuse to visit our new baby.

We checked the chair today in daylight. The base IS black plastic and not metal. So no pieces missing. Next step, buy the magic tape and make her slide.
