Simplified Caged Ball Bearing by blecheimer Mar 8, 2013

Description

Oh no, not again another ball bearing... Sorry, but I just have to show my final design. jonathanw's comment on my last ball bearing ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:57762 ) gave me new ideas. I reduced the bearing to three parts. The inner ring is now made of one piece and need not to be snapped together. Unfortunately the assembly is a little bit more complicated. I made a simple assembly tool that makes things easier. Take a look at this video for the assembly sequence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5VLo87xurM

PS: Thanks jonathanw for leading me to a new idea!

Thanks for your comment. :)
I wanted to say thanks, for the best ball bearing I found on thingiverse!
I needed to scale the inner part at 104% to have a good fit (no wobbling around, works like it should)
Thanks for this design!
