KLKS CNC BuildLog 03 – Buying Bearings
This buildlog will be a short one on the bearings which will be used in the CNC.
The Solsylva plans for the CNC uses 608-2RS skate bearings. Bearings come in different quality, from the cheap ABEC 3 to the expensive ABEC 9. I began first by searching online for bearings but the prices online per bearing is stupid expensive (Between RM5-RM50). I was then recommended a shop along Jalan Sungai Besi which sold these bearings, the shop has a logo of wheels and trolley wheels on it, it is on the opposite of the Shell petrol station between Jalan 1 and Jalan 2. They cost about RM2 per bearing. I ended up buying 35 bearings.
Total time spent finding shop and buying bearings :- 1 Week
Total $ spent : RM70
