    Does anyone have any kind of bearing part number or know where to order replacements?

    I am in need of replacing the bearings on my Raytech machine and can’t find any numbers on the bearings. They are Federal Made in USA bearings but that’s all I can read on them. They are 5/8 ID and 1 3/16 OD which I have had no luck finding.

    I tried to contact Raytech but their email gets returned and I can’t get anyone to return my call.

    Thank you, Jeremy

    I was a few minutes to quick to complain. About 12 minutes after I posted he called me back from Raytech and was most helpful. He was able to determine that the bearings being made by Federal were an older bearing that is not available. Therefore the best solution was to send me a new shaft assembly. It was under $200 and will get me back to faceting much faster than any other option. It was a used machine that was a good deal so guess I can’t complain.

    Thank you Raytech!
