Not in sets? Really? Mine were a pair (of course the exact item I bought was a pair and is no longer available on amazon).

Nope. This is how I discovered how nice one-click ordering can be on Amazon. I have a video about linear bearings if anyone is interested in seeing whats inside.

I have used these type of bearing in other projects. The quality can vary a lot between different suppliers. You can get nice silent smooth bearings or bearings that sound and feel so rough you wouldn't want to use them for anything. It is difficult finding a good supplier, but as the price isn't very high it's worth making sure you are happy with the bearing before using them.
Just my 10 cents.
