    Just an example

    Anyway, thanks again Bob D..

    That was just an example source. If you do some searching of your own you will probably locate a source close enough to you that shipping will be minimal or within driving distance.

    As I said the 608Z is for skates, so look at places that sell in-line skates, there has to be a bunch of those nearby. Then 'upgrade' to the next quality level that has the same dimensions as your bearing (take one with you and match it up).
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      True Newman, but in this case it comes from research I did on building a CNC router.

      Knowing WHERE to find some information and logical ways to search for it is sometimes half the battle...

      Bob D,
      Absolutely. There is no substitute for experience, and I know the true value of experience. My previous reply was in no way intended to be disrespectful in any way. I was merely suggesting that with the wide spread of the Internet, there is a pool of information available to all. But I suppose the Internet is like any tool, and as such, in the hands of an amateur it's of limitted use.

        Very true.

        And I never thought of hitting local shops (although I can't think of anything off hand). Anyway, thanks again bud.
