i have a bakery craft turn table that I love, and its not turning smoothly, when I take the turn table off the base I see that there is some black powder on it,  do I need more of that "black powder"  to make it turn the way its suppose to without sticking? tia

My guess is that what appears as black powder is actually the grease or oil added by the manufacturer to enable it to turn. From using it a lot, the oil dries out and looks like powder.  I would  spray some WD40 into the area where the turning part is (where the ball bearings make it turn) and that should do the trick.  Make sure to clean off any excess that may come into contact with food.  This happens with small appliances too. And doors, and.....a lot of things, haha. Let us know how it works out.

Is the 'black powder' really powder?  Could it be flour has gotten up/under there and picked up the grease that was on the product when you got it?\

Anyway - spraying w/WD40 should help as the other poster said.

Did you use the WD40 or get your turntable working again?
