Default At the Risk of Interrupting

Hey, that's all great advice, thanks everyone.

Actually, now might be a good time to mention that the shaft is going to both rotate and pivot vertically. So its going to be mounted on a hinge of some sort. So I guess I could drill a hole in a panel, mount the shaft, mount the panel on a hinge, and mount that inside the chassis, or I could just mount a pillow block on a hinge in the chassis.

Since this is DIY, I've stumbled across a sealed ball bearing shaft that I can mount onto a hinge, and it cost $.99. This is a little long (2") and complete overkill, it also requires me to make a custom bracket, but hey, that's what DIY is all about.

I'm probably going to try this out, you all can make fun of me later, when I post the completed project......if I ever finish!

Get your old junk roller blades out and take a good once over at the bearings, thay come out fairly easy, and you might find what your looking for.

No roller Blade is ever junk...I'm a rollerblading fan...hehe...I blade everydae...dun junk it...unless ur wheels are really worn out...seriously though...I think a plastic bush woulr really do well...you dun have to go all the way and use a ball race...if u're really despo and have some specs and stuff..I suggest you look at RS (radio Spares) not Radio-Shiok....Under Industrial Products you have a pretty good range of ball races and bearings...
