Bearings by Alex Weiss. Number 40 in the Workshop Practice Series. 2010 reprint (First published 2008).


Every working model includes bearings, often a large number of them. This practical book describes the wide and diverse range of bearings found in the large variety of different types of models built in home workshops. It reviews the choice of bearings materials, the type of bearing to use for each particular application and highlights the differences between home-made and off-the-shelf bearings. It also considers the installation and care of bearings. Furthermore, it also covers several full-size applications undertaken by model engineers, such as clock making and machine tool maintenance, which also call for some knowledge of bearings. It is now forty years since Ian Bradley and Norman Hallows published the slim MAP volume "Bearing Design and Fitting" and much has changed in the bearing field since that date. This book provides a welcome addition to the "Workshop Practice Series" of books and will be welcomed by all model engineers, whatever their area of interest.
