So, is the catfisher better than the sunfisher??

Will a 608 Bearing work? This looks really cool!

No a 608 bearing is about 22 mm in diameter the 624 bearing is only 13

I was able to find everything besides the ball bearing from HomeDepot. Got the bearing on Amazon. I am having a hard time assembling it though. Is the base suppose to be very tight on the 4mm bolt?

The hole in the base should have a fairly snug fit but you should be able to push the 4mm bolt in by hand. You may have to chase the holes with a drill bit to get just the right diameter. My printer seems to print a more accurate inner diameter in PLA than when I print in ABS. What material are you using?

Thanks for the tip! I think the drill will help a lot. Gonna try it later.

I'm using PLA actually... so might just need to spend a little more time cleaning up the parts before assembly. And thanks for the design! I'm really excited about this.

I can't seem to find all the parts could you put a link in

This time, I got all the parts for this from my local ace hardware store. The bearing I had from left over parts from when I built my custom prusa i3 though. I am almost certain I got a sleeve of them from ebay. I have ordered a lot of hardware from boltdepot.com in the past, they have a great selection of hardware but no ball bearings.
