I purchased this bearing as a replacement for a shaft bearing on an electric motor in a dust collector that had rusted due to exposure to moisture in use. Finding a stainless steel bearing was a great plus so I would not have to worry about the replacement rusting. However once installed the bearing caused the motor to HOWL when running and was noticeably warmer. Luckily the noise from the blower is much louder than the bearing so the bearing noise is masked during operation but is still there. Bottom line if you need a bearing for an electric motor find one that is rated EMQ for electric motor quality. There really is a difference.

Needed a replacement bearing for a meat slicer. The size was written on the side of the original bearing so I googled it and found this listing. The bearings sent were high quality and fit exactly. If your size numbers match this title you can trust this listing to be correct.
