      Hey guys:

      I'm looking into purchasing stainless steel bearings (Roller and/or Ball Bearing), Spherical or not. I have a hard time finding a good vendor that sells good variety of stainless steel bearings. We use Bore sizes from 3/8" - 3" Diameter. I know it's easy to find steel bearings, but when it comes to stainless steel bearings, I find it tough to find vendors. Where do you recommand me to take a look of stainless steel bearings besides SKF ( I know the common bearing companies that have steel bearings, but what about stainless steel bearings)?

      How about stainless steel Rod Ends?


      Kevin

      Unfortunately, there is just not the selection available in stainless steel that there is in non-stainless steel but you can try all of these:

      VXB Bearing, http://www.vxb.com/ballbearings.html
      Kaman industries is a supplier for several bearing companies and can find you almost anything.

      McMaster-Carr
      Misumi

      Hi,

      I've had excellent service from CCR bearings in Connecticut USA.
      Grades from 302 to 440C.
      Finding it very expensive recently to get product from the USA though - for my last order, the freight costs exceeded the value of the order.

      Stainless Bearing Applications is where you will find it.

      Hello Sir 2 industries you should look towards is Aircraft Suppliers but more likely Food and or Marine industries
      Contact a Local source that I know personally it is called (Thompson Industrial Supply) your likely to find the higher end of knowledge and specialties in the Bearing Industries, but the largest is Motion Industries, I don't know where you reside, Thompson Industrial Number is 909-944-4000, speak with Chuck or Sandy. they will either help you or steer you in the right direction.
