Quoted from onlydjz:
Could you tell me the exact type of this bearing?
Its a Solid Polymer Bearing, RJMP-01-06 and was what I initially wanted to use but I wasn't able to find them for the thinner shafts on the MkI Kit.
You can however use other kind of 6x12x19 bearings with the thicker shafts if you like.
# Linear Ball Bearing LM6UU, (LM5UU) used on the MkI Kit and has been working fine so far but I found the quality to be a bit uneven and had to throw away about 25% since I wasn't completely satisfied, so Im gonna recommend the RJMP-01-06, price is about the same and slides well on the shafts.
# Self Lubricating Graphite Brass Bearings JDB LM6UU LM6, not tested and a bit more expensive.
You might be able to find other bearings with same size but I haven't digged any deeper in to this.
