Thread: Bearing selection for a BW drum spinner

  1. #1
    Hello Everyone!
    Looking at bearings for a drum spinner, any suggestions for high speed bearings? Wondering if i need to worry about end thrust on the bearing in a situation where I hit a different-axis spinner. Maybe a taper bearing would suffice? Unsure what is suitable and I don't want the bearing to become the point of failure in the weapon.
    Recommendations of bearings much appreciated - any other input appreciated also!

    Happy fighting!

    I am not sure about BW but pretty much every drum I know of uses taper roller bearings.
