Comments and "Unusual" Tools Used:
I did not add links to the specific parts that I purchased above since these links tend to change over time. However, below is a list of some of the sources that I have used to purchase replacement components for this and other projects on my Super Maramu. Oddly, some of the most affordable places that I found to buy bearings from are in the United Kingdom despite the fact that I live in the USA. Even when I factored in shipping costs. All of these sites carry at least some of the better quality brands like SKF, FAG, Koyo, Timken, and NSK. I purchased SKF bearings.
www.theoringstore.com (excellent selection and usually a low Minimum Order Quantity)
As many of you already know, the last three companies listed (McMaster, Grainger, and MSC) are big online "MRO" companies. They carry pretty much all of the items you need for this project but for the most part you don't know what brand you are buying and the parts tend to cost higher than they do on the sites that I listed for the bearings, seals, and o-rings.
I hope this helps some of you gather all the parts, tools, and other bits you need to tackle this job. Good luck!
