Anyone know where I can get some cheap flange mounted ball bearings? I'm thinking about a 1/4" or 5/16" bore. These can be low quality. Grainger, McMaster- all too expensive. Any ideas?
Here's an example:ummm- not sure- what is that?
basically, I'm setting up a long shaft at the end of a motor, with various cams on it. I wanted the ball bearing mount for the other end of the shaft. It's low radial load, and a slow speed- just anything to reduce friction, ya know? Can you explain what that is?
Just drill a hole to match (or slightly smaller than) the OD of the barrel, not the flange. Press the bushing into the hole. Alignment is important, make sure the hole is perpendicular to the wood surface.huh. That's interesting. So you think this will work? How do I mount this into wood?
