Bearings Direct is a ball bearings supplier with over twenty years of experience in the industry. Ball bearings consist of a series of round balls in a casing, within an inner and outer ring capable of supporting both radial and axial (thrust) loads. Ball bearings come in both single and double row configurations, in both metric and inch sizes, and can be found in a large range of applications from door hinges to roller skates. For more information, browse our inventory of ball bearings below!
Miniature Ball Bearings are small bearings with bore sizes between 1 and 10 mm or up to half an inch. Bearings Direct offers a number of miniature ball bearings in both metric and inch sizes that meet ABEC7 precision class.
Deep Groove Ball Bearings are incredibly versatile and the most widely used. Due to their low friction, they are capable of high rotational speeds, supporting both radial and axial loads. Bearings Direct offers both inmetric andinch sizes , also we stock stainless steel made materialsmetric andinch sizes
Double Row Ball Bearingsare similar to both precision angular contact and super precision ball bearings in that they can accommodate a combined radial and axial loads. These bearings have two rows of balls inside making them capable of much higher loads. Bearings Direct supplies double row ball bearings that are open and with shielded or sealed closures.
Self-Aligning Ball Bearingsare double-row ball bearings that can adapt to both static and dynamic angular misalignment. These bearings are particularly appropriate when shaft and housing alignment is a challenge.
Bearings Direct offers a large selection of ball bearings available for purchase online. You can view our inventory below or using the links on the left-hand side. To request more information, contact us today.
Bearings Direct supplies mini metric ball bearings in bore sizes from 1mm to 10mm. We also offer metric miniature ball bearings with a flanged outer ring, combined with ceramic, stainless steel, or plastic materials. These bearings are up to ABEC7 precision class.
Inch miniature ball bearings are available in bore sizes from 1/8 to 1/2 inch. These miniature ball bearings have a flanged outer ring and can be combined with ceramic, stainless steel, or plastic materials. Our inch size miniature ball bearings range from ABEC0 up to ABEC7 precision class.
Bearings Direct supplies metric bearings & ball bearings. These metric bearings are radial, single-row bearings in chrome steel, stainless steel, and more. We also supply super precision ball bearings in metric sizes. See our inventory below!
Our inventory of deep groove & super precision radial ball bearings consists of super precision ABEC7/p4 bearings with a phenolic retainer. These bearings are perfect for high-speed and precision applications.
Bearings Direct supplies imperial inch & inch size single row radial ball bearings. These bearings come in chrome and stainless steel, open-shielded-sealed closures, and more configurations. View our inventory below!
Our inventory of bearings includes inch stainless radial ball bearings & inch size single row ball bearings. These are sealed, shielded, and pre-lubricated with grease. They are made with AISI-440C stainless steel to improve corrosion resistance.
Bearings Direct supplies a range of Automotive AC ball bearings and Air Conditioner bearings. These bearings are suitable for the high-speed applications Automotive A/C compressors require. They are typically double-row ball bearings, rubber sealed on both sides, and pre-lubricated with high-speed grease.
Bearings Direct supplies a variety of precision angular contact ball bearings & angular contact ball bearings. We offer three different series, 7000, 7200, and 7300. View our subcategory pages for more information!
Bearings Direct's supply of self aligning ball bearings includes self-aligning double row ball bearings. These range from light to medium duty. Our light duty bearings are offered with or without seals.
Thrust ball bearings are comprised of ball rolling elements. Their appearance sets them apart from the other types of bearings since the outer race and inner race, called shaft and housing washers, are layered with the cage in between. This assembly makes them look like three stacked washers. Thrust ball bearings can sustain loads at high speeds and their use are ideal for axial loads only.
Our inventory of thrust ball bearings includes single row thrust ball bearings and vary in sizes. We offer both miniature three-piece and regular three-piece thrust ball bearings. Many of our Miniature Thrust Ball Bearings contain washers with or without a groove and are made of chrome steel and brass cages. Regular Thrust Ball Bearings are made of chrome steel.

Cemented carbide is a hard material used extensively as cutting tool material, as well as other industrial applications. It consists of fine particles of carbide cemented into a composite by a binder metal. Cemented carbides commonly use tungsten carbide (WC), titanium carbide (TiC), or tantalum carbide (TaC) as the aggregate. Mentions of "carbide" or "tungsten carbide" in industrial contexts usually refer to these cemented composites.
Most of the time, carbide cutters will leave a better surface finish on the part, and allow faster machining than high-speed steel or other tool steels. Carbide tools can withstand higher temperatures at the cutter-workpiece interface than standard high-speed steel tools (which is a principal reason for the faster machining). Carbide is usually superior for the cutting of tough materials such as carbon steel or stainless steel, as well as in situations where other cutting tools would wear away faster, such as high-quantity production runs.
3. Carbide tipped tools last far longer because the carbide chip forming surface resists wear as the chip flows over the tools. This greatly reduces need for costly changes with increased scrap and rework.
American National Standard B94.11M-1993 covers the relevant information relating to drill bits, including sizes, tolerances, nomenclature, and definitions. Below is a summary of some of the key terminology relating to Drill Bits.
2. Back taper is a reduction in the drill bits diameter that occurs from the point of the drill bit to the end of the drill bit body. Most drill bits are machined with a small back taper to prevent the bit from binding in the workpiece when the drill bit becomes worn.
5. Flutes are the grooves that are formed in the drill bit which serve to allow the removal of chips from the hole being cut and to allow cutting fluid to reach the cutting lips of the bit. Flutes are usually helically shaped or straight cut.
6. Overall length is the distance measured from the extreme end of the shank to the outer corners of the cutting lips. Note that this measurement excludes the conical shank end and the conical cutting point at the tip of the drill bit.
Carbide (Carb) is the hardest and most brittle of the drill bit materials. Its used mostly for production drilling where a high-quality tool holder and equipment is used. It should not be used in hand drills or even drill presses. These drill bits are designed for the most demanding and hardest materials.
If you're just starting out, the five essential bits listed above or a quality set can be an excellent place to start. However, there are many more router bits on the market. Here are a few specialty router bits you can buy, as well as how they can be used:
I don't mean that entirely literally. But I think it's best if you buy just a few tools and start using those. As you get more comfortable with what you have it becomes easier to understand what tools you should get next. That way you don't end up buying a workshop full of tools only to find out that you aren't really into woodworking. Let's begin, guys!
