3E linear bearings


Recommended Posts

Posted · 3E linear bearings

We have a 3 Extended. The short Y-axis linear bearing has gone bad. It is a LMK6. All of the replacement bearings I have found seem to have a 12mm OD. The one on the machine has a 10mm OD. Has anyone found a replacement for these 10mm OD bearings?

    It's a Misumi LMK6. They're special compact linear bearings, compared to the more standard 12mm OD, like you found. 


    I don't know your location, but you should be able to get one from your reseller. That will probably be the easiest way to get one since the Misumi site says lead times are longer than normal (even though it shows tomorrow as a ship date).
