    Awsome! Could you explain how you used the flange bearing in more detail? The internal diameter of the bearing looks a lot wider than the bolt connecting it to the U-block. Any kind of information and dimensions would be great thanks!

    Rgds, Ulrik

    Dogs, cats, hamsters, fish, parrots – who do you prefer? Or perhaps what that bottomless animals – snakes, crocodiles, lizards, monkeys?
