Thanks for the info guys. It’s really appreciated. Mauricio, this IS for my treadle project. I bought a cheap pillowblock set at ACE out of excitement and built a top with a slit for the belt. Now that I’m looking at it, the quality is horrendous. I’ll probably mock it up with the junk that I have, then switch to some higher quality stuff if it looks like it’s going to work. I’m only out $30 on the junk stuff, so lesson learned.

Although I have a grease gun, I think I’m opting for the sealed bearings. I think I recall August, Philip, and MedicKen recommending a particular variety. I used to know good skateboard bearings when I saw them but that’s the extent of my knowledge;)
