Does anybody know of a supplier of rm2zz v-groove bearings in the UK or the EU? I know I can get them aliexpress and from the USA but I need them in days not weeks ideally.
Crucially they need to be v groove 29/30mm diameter (or v. close) with a 3/8"/10mm-ish bore.
Surprised I cant find any supplier at all in the EU - maybe I am not googling right.

Try this search, some come up and maybe an equivalent would do ?
Anything here ?

Hi, yes the evw2x is an exact match but at those prices I'd be looking at £321 for the 12 I need - Euro Bearings prices are a joke IMHO. The same can be bought in the US and China for £3 a piece. I'd expect to pay £5/£6 with UK prices - but £321 is bonkers. I think I might be able to use U groove instead of V groove so that opens up a few more avenues. They are very common in the US it seems but like rocking horse droppings in the UK. Maybe I need to find a US company that does expedited shipping. Thanks for your help though - genuinely appreciated.
If you look on AliExpress there are some that ship via China Post Air Mail for about $8, the bearings are about $50 for 10. I have found that these sort of things arrive remarkably quickly.
I'll hazard a guess that most you buy in UK are of chinese origin anyway. You will probably have to add duty VAT and a forwarding fee onto the price however
