Bearings
« on: August 07, 2021, 10:01:27 AM »
I am stuck on a project and need a specific bearing but dont know A: if they even exist B: what they would be called if they do.

So they need to be a thrust bearing (and no searching for that isn't bringing up what I need) that will secure onto the end of a pin at about 4-5mm probably by way of a spring type jobby similar to how things like drive shafts are held in place and a free spinning flat face with an outside diameter of about 12-15mm.

Any ideas about what I should type into a search engine would be appreciated.

Give Simply Bearings, or Bearing Boys a call, they are both very helpful:

I will give them a call when I get the chance on monday but looking through the sites I am not hopeful, I am seriously thinking that what I want doesn't exist to be honest so I may have to rethink my approach.
