Any good source for decent linear bearings and rods in EU?

Post by Amedee » November 28th, 2016, 12:15 pm

I eventually took the decision to refurbish my old UMO.

Does anybody have a source for good hardware in EU?

Don't answer Misumi -- they don't sell to individuals so I can't order from them...

You could try Igus, they do good bearings and cable guides etc, are also good for samples and have their own filaments

I already looked at Igus, but I only found their DryLin series...
Do they also have linear ball bearings? I could not find them.

The good thing with Igus is they sell any quantities to anybody...

@Paul, thanks, by it is a bit crazy, and if goes through customs prices are going to be ballistic ;)

@Izzy, yes I'll try to see with them -- I am very tempted to try their DryLin, it is what they have in the BQ Witbox printers and result was very good. It won't be worse than my Chinese bearings anyway...

@Gudo, Merci! This is looking quite good!

Best ofc is Misumi.

For good (not just ok) bearings I use http://www.technobotsonline.com so far they delivered very good small linear bearings for the um2 hotend I had to replace. Also the nut I bought from them to fix a bad UM bed is still working perfectly. I only bought this two products from them and some bearings, but they seem to stock good materials.

Ahh Misumi!! Oh btw I can order Misumi, so does a few others on the UM forum on europe. The issue is that I need to pay 20€ per order just on delivery. But I could be happy to assist you men. Anyhow thia technorobots web I linked they do sell good stuff so far.
