Hi there,
We're the team behind Bearing Station (http://www.bearingstation.co.uk/) - I work on the web side of things, and Phil and Nev (who should be registering for the forum right now) are the guys who set up the business and between them have around 40 years worth of experience with bearings, belts, seals and a bucket-load of other technical things that I don't really understand because I'm the computer guy.

Anyway - The reason for this thread is explained over here (http://www.mycncuk.com/forums/new-member-introductions/6041-hi-im-part-bearing-station-team.html).

Basically, I thought it might be of interest for the guys to answer any questions mycncuk users might have about the various products they supply. Jonathan has already suggested a "service to bore their HTD timing pulleys and add grubscrews" so hopefully Phil can address that once he's logged in!

So - please ask anything you like and we'll do our best to answer.
Thanks,
Mark

edit: looks like we need their first posts to be approved by mods, so they should appear after that...

Hello

Quick introduction my name is Phil. I have been involved with advising and selling of bearing, belts, pulleys adhesives and pretty much most things industrial mechanical for over 20 years. I am offering my service to anyone who has any queries with selecting of pulleys, belts bearings and hopefully I can help.

Re boring of pulleys sprockets etc. we can offer a boring service for you which we can price on application. Sometimes boreing isnt necessary if you can accept taper lock bushes in a taper lock pulley. If you heavent heard of these it is simply a pulley that has been machined to accomadate a bush that you can attach to a shaft with a keyway negating the need for boreing the pulley or sprocket

Anyway drop me a note if any help required

Phil

Welcome to the forum Phil, sure there will be lots of questions you get asked directly or that you will be able to answer if someone puts up a general thread regarding some of the work you do.

Hmmm . Yes you should always be prepared . Buy the meat now deep freeze . I always ensure I have beer available for those hastily arranged bbqs

Welcome Bearingstation I was wondering if you could shed any light on the answer to life the universe and everything?

Alternatively do you recommend gluing aluminium pulley to the shafts of stepper motors with strong loctite?

Hello. If you were going to use an adhesive i would recommend Bondloc B415X20GRM which is the same as loctite only cheaper. Normally you would also have a grub screw with the shaft nipped to locate the pulley to ensure a secure grip. The only other thing to consider is the speed and temperature which could have an effect on any bond. I have attached a data sheet or linked anyway for you to check out the adhesive Bondloc manufacturer of Industrial Adhesives and Sealants (http://www.bondloc.co.uk/#/b415/4546198935)


Meaning of life easy. Its 42.

Hi I've registered in this forum in desperation - my problem is that I have been waiting for several weeks for a refund of 51.04 which I paid on the 2 November . See order No. 7398 which I cancelled by phone and confirmed this by email on 15 November.

I can't get seem to get any response to emails, and my attempts to progress the refund via phone calls (to Neville) have not borne fruit!

Please can whoever reads this expedite the refund?

Thanks
Peter

Hi chaps. Ive used you a couple of times, and have nothing but good remarks to say about the service. keep it up!

I think I have a useful question (well, at-least I think it will benefit me, maybe a few others)

What is the correct actual way of working out belt lengths?

Ive drawn you a nice picture :D
10932

I get.... to work out the circumference of the pulley its
teeth x pitch
a=(200x5)1000mm
b=(600x5)3000mm

so ive always gone with (A/2) + B(/2) + (2xC) which I appreciate isnt very accurate.

Im sure there is a smarter way of doing it... to get the perfect belt size. but ive always wondered how?

So you guys are the pro's.... the stage it yours :D

Join the club a couple on months ago I had exactly the same problem after at least 10 phone calls and numerous promises they never returned any phone calls. I think they are a joke. :distrust: ..Clive
