This ¼” ID bearing integrates a go-to imperial diameter (¼”) into the metric world of goBILDA®! Its 14mm OD is a perfect fit in nearly any goBILDA® structural component. Meanwhile, its 15mm diameter flange restricts the bearing axially, while still providing clearance for nearby screws on the 16mm pattern.
Whether you’re using this bearing to support a NEMA 23 stepper motor’s shaft (typically ¼” diameter), mixing your old Actobotics war-chest with your new goBILDA® treasure-trove, or holding fast to the imperial system empire, this bearing brings vital possibilities to your hybrid build!
If the outside diameter of a nearby component is large enough to come in contact with the outer race of a bearing, a spacer or shim should be installed between the component and the bearing. This will allow the bearing to rotate freely.
