    I normally buy replacement bearings. I often get bearings form bearing suppliers. What are you trying to fix ?

    not your run of the mill bearings.

    It’s the first time I’ve been involved with refurbishing bearings. Generally they are beyond repair. Although I wouldn’t have thought this size bearing would fit the criteria.

    The one above is worth $5400. Refurb cost is $3400. We purchased the only one in australia, 12 week lead time for another new one.

    Have another gearbox where I’m now hoping the thrust is also good condition. Replacement cost is $33000 dollars. For this one a $3400 birthday is probably worthwhile.

    All other roller bearings in the box are readily available.

    Just figured somebody might have had some direct experience.
