With full size nuts the groove that the bearings ride on could only be about 1/8", which would work but a little deeper would be better so I ground some nuts down to about 13/32" OD. Anybody know of ready-made nuts like this?
I found the studs here.
I feel a bit dull - regarding dpc's idea:dpc wrote:I'm curious as to why you're using a bored hole around the bearing instead of a slot that is the width of the bearing (plus enough for a washer on each side)? If used a slot instead you won't need any nuts at all. Those CNC machines make pretty accurate cuts.
How is the stud/threaded rod retained? Just screwed into the wood/compression fit?
