608 bearing Plate for 1 inch hole by IonEwe Jan 8, 2013


The OD of a 608 bearing is not a common Forstner drill size, so i created the plate to adapt a 1" hole in wood. There are tabs on the plate to lock it in place. This is only necessary if you slot the wood for adjusting.

print at leat 50% infill, plate side down

the OD of the plate is slightly less then 1" to allow for slip fit. The ID of the plate is a slip fit so to insert the bearing heat the PLA and press the bearing in on a flat surface.

Drill the hole about .300" to give the bearing clearance. Use this for compression loads (pressing into the wood), not tension loads I'm using this for this project: http://www.solsylva.com/cnc/rotomolder.shtml
