Cheap project bearings

Was doing an inventory search for some cabmet slide parts and ran across this errant universal joint.Called for a price at the local auto joint.......10$(which equals four bearing cups)Anyhow,seeing as these are needle bearings that are heck for stought,thought they may just be a viable source for "certain" project applications........got a homeboy TS project in the works and these may just get hacked up and utilized?Undecided,as of yet to whether they'll be hacked in situ or turn some threaded,& shoulder'd male ends and just use the cups off them?Anyway,just keep them in mind when looking for cheap bearings.BW

See if this works.........It's the old sayin,"even a blind squirrel finds a nut".This is a 10$ top.The best part is lookin underneath,the stock bolt holes are just beggin to be used for an easy bolt up to make a slider.

Am being a little bit careful wackin the CI however........have welded way too much of the stuff,in a payin your dues sort of way......but,having never really cut all that much of it....am being cautious.Got to get the speed N feed just right to minimize the dust.Right now it looks like its gonna get wacked on a big metal cuttin BS and then spend some quality time on the Bridgeport,dialing in the edge.All in good time........BW

Whilst patiently waiting for a glue-up.....took the other half of top,with BP already in fixture mode,knocked it out.

Then looked over at one of our edge sanders,its a Grizz sumthin or other model........and thought how it sure would be nice to have a little more table length AND a Tee slot.Got to measuring,and not only did it fit but get this........the TS top bolt holes lined up and were exactly the same thread pitch.

So,in an hour or so.....this was the result.Shot a coat of paint on edges,bolted it up and once the glue sets,its gonna get used.Pretty much my "Duh" moment for the day.
