Bearing brands?

Recommended Posts

It's a sad day..... my supplier(s) are no-longer able to supply RHP MJ1NR bearings for rebuilding gearboxes. :down:

The only branded ones I can get my hands on now are KSM-Japan. Does anyone know if these are any better than the unbranded cheap-as-chips rubbish?

I gather that the basic bearings are available - but without the groove in the outer race for the spring ring.  Any competent machine shop should be able to add that - though they'd probably prefer to do more than 2!  Group buy??

Don't know anything about KSM.....

Yes, I can still source branded MJ1/RMS8 (no snap ring/groove) bearings, but even then they aren't cheap!

No idea what a machine shop would charge to machine the grooves... like you say, probably a candidate for trying to drag together a group buy across a few clubs/forums.
