You can get a fish to bite your bate,

You can get a fish to bite your bate, but your fishing reel better have this bearing to bring it in. One of the coolest applications for the featured SQL12RS bearing is a fishing reel. This bearing is found to be the mechanism behind reeling in the the fish. One side of the bearing is a female thread, while the other side is a male thread. The dimensions for the featured bearing are 12mm inner diameter with a M12x1.25 thread. for more information about the SQL12RS L-Ball Rod end,

You see something “different” about this bearing?

You see something “different” about this bearing? To the naked eye it looks pretty normal; however this bearing has a slightly different dimension than the standard 6202-2RS bearing. The inner diameter is 5/8” as oppose to 15mm. It is important to know the dimensions of your bearing for that reason. The part number on your bearing can be universal, but it can have a dimension difference. 6202-10-2RS 5/8"x35x11 Ball Bearings, more information

First gear, second gear, thirds gear, and go!

First gear, second gear, thirds gear, and go! This bearing is found in the clutch of automobile. The design of the bearing permits maximum speeds at maximum loads, resists wear for longer life, and minimizes noise and vibration. Additionally, a self-aligning design allows the clutch release bearings to control clutch conditions associated with the misalignment of drivetrain components. This bearing is proven to perform in standard and heavy duty applications. Featured Nachi NP-47SCRN40P Clutch Release Bearing, measures 37mm x 47mm x 23mm

Now try spelling Polytetrafluoroethylene

Now try spelling Polytetrafluoroethylene in a spelling bee! That is what the seals on this featured bearing are made from. This type of seal is lighter and has less friction making it great for skateboarding, rollerblading and any other fun application. These bearings are also used in “not so fun” applications such as vacuum cleaners or washing machines. The inner race, outer race, and ball bearings are made of chrome steel. The dimensions on the 608-2TS are 8mm x 22mm x 7mm.

Bearings have lips too...

Bearings have lips too… Well, it’s not really a lip; it’s a flange! What is the purpose of the flange? The flange makes it easy to mount and remove a bearing from an application. A bearing without a flange sits in the housing and would need a special method/tool to remove it. This featured bearing is lubricated with a light oil preserve, making it spin smoothly,

    A rebel? Perhaps

    A rebel? Perhaps. There is a slight dimensional difference in this bearing. The standard 608 bearing is 8mm x 22mm x 7mm and this “special” bearing has an inner diameter of ¼”. You will come across this situation quite often in the bearing world. Here, at, we ask you for your bearing’s dimensions to confirm we are offering the correct bearing. We have quite the collection of special sized bearings.


    … I need them for my cannon.” “Your cannon?!


    “… I need them for my cannon.” “Your cannon?!” I asked. Yes, I have a mini cannon and it needs 5/8” loose bearings. This was one of the coolest applications I’ve heard bearings being used in. If you don't have a mini cannon, it's OK, you can use these chrome steel bearings in any application that is suitable for this size. These featured bearings are G25 in sphericity and are made of 52100 hardened chrome steel, for more information, visit this link

    This rail system is such a square!


    This rail system is such a square! Your “typical” linear system comes with a cylindrical shaft, but not in this case. This complete linear system comes with a square shaft and a flanged square slide block, ready for installation. This system is great for any application with high repeatability. This system is strong and accurate for improved production. So if you are thinking of building something requiring a linear system, keep this one in mind! for more information

    Our ceramic bearings get along!

    Our ceramic bearings get along, there is no friction there…! True statement, full ceramic bearings produce the least amount of friction possible making them perfect for high speed applications. These bearings are made to be used in applications with high humidity, high heat, and light load. Ceramic is in fact brittle so any kind of vibration or impact can damage the bearing. The featured bearing measures 9mm x 17mm x 5mm and has a PTFE cage. For more information on this bearing, contact us, we are happy to help.

    Oh snap, there goes my shaft!

    Oh snap, there goes my shaft! Well not if you used a spherical plain bearing. These bearings are designed to move as the shaft moves, providing flexibility and support for the shaft. Technically this bearing is not exactly a bearing, but a bushing. The inner race glides inside the outer race and has no ball bearings. The featured bearing is a GEZ200ES-2RS, fully equipped with an oil hole and measures 2" x 3 3/16" x 1 3/4" inches, for more information visit

    Odd looking fellow!

    Odd looking fellow! What is that thing sticking out of the inner race? Don’t be alarmed, it is not a mutant bearing. This 608RS bearing has an extended inner race so you don’t need a spacer. This bearing is one of our most popular 608 bearings. The ball bearings are made of ZrO2 ceramic for least amount of friction. The cage is nylon, which helps with speed and it is sealed on one side. The inner and out race is made of chrome steel.
