      Hi guys,

      Sorry for this newbie question but I am wondering what kind of bearing housing it is in this picture?

      [​IMG]

      Does it have a specific name? I'm trying to find one but don't really know what it's called.

      Can anyone help? Thanks

      This is (generically) called a "pillow block", an independent housing specifically meant to hold and position a bearing.
