    Bearing

    I have to just rant! I can't find a 12mm I.D. bore and a 26mm O.D. to save my life! They just don't seem to exist!

    Re: Bearing

    I will dig around - what's it fit? What type of bearing are you looking for - a regular ball bearing? Angular contact?

    What's the skinny? Inquiring minds need to know!

    Looks like a fun project!

    I forgot all about this bearing aquisition problem - did you get it licked or are you still in the hunt?

    Re: Bearing

    I changed the front end design and stuck with the stock steering head and sleeved it for more strength. Fixed the bearing issue. Should be a little rocket. Found one other guy that built a similar. 1st through 3rd gear won't stay down and rolling 70 mph wheelies. He backed off at 109mph LOLOL.... And its small and portable!

    I can turn stuff if you can't find a local source. I just need a sketch and the parts. I am in Virginia.

    The mill is CNC - it's a PC based controller.

    Here are a few links about the shop and the BP (another site) if you are interested:

    The thread on moving the Bridgeport is pretty good - lots more pics of the shop in that thread, too.
