Spare Linear Bearings.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Spare Linear Bearings.

I don't have a supplier for you (except if you can order as a company and not a private person), but maybe I can help you specifying what you need exactly.

You're looking for a double length linear bearing for 6mm shafts:

Shaft diameter: 6mm

Outer diameter: 12mm

Length: 35mm

The Misumi article no for this would be:

LMUW6 (bearing steel, non-stainless but very hard. Recommended)

SLMUW6 (stainless steel)

But Misumi only accepts business customers :(


Ultimaker uses the article no "LM6LUU" (from another manufacturer...). You might find something with this...

    Were the ones you bought any good?

    I bought a set of 4 on ebay which were, in theory, of a reasonable quality, but they were nowhere near as quiet/smooth as the originals.

    Currently still seeking a couple of these for my printer.
