Bearings

Whenever I replace a bearing on one of my vehicles, I keep the old one and tear it apart. I keep the steel bearing races, stripping away the balls or rollers and any cage or seals it may have. Over the years I've accumulated a small collection of various sizes. These provide you with "tubes" of various diameters that can be handy for use with a press or as round stock for making specialty tools, as you can easily weld to them.
