Skate Bearings - Question 18
What is the purpose of this page?
The internet has created a lot of hype about ABEC 3, ABEC 5, ABEC 7 and even ABEC 9 bearings being recommended for inline skates. The only people that are benefiting from this are the people selling the bearings. This FAQ guide is designed to set the record straight, to let you know the meanings of the terminology used in the bearing industry, and to let you know the correct intended use for high precision bearings. Sure we are in business to sell bearings ourselves, but our main aim here is to educate the public a little and save them some money, whether they buy from us or from their local reputable bearing dealer.
You can purchase online at Hobby and Engineering Supplies.
For a huge range of bearings online please visit the Bearing Shop Online website.
The Small Parts and Bearings website has a much larger range of engineering supplies.
For the best range of miniature and small bearings please try the Miniature Bearings Australia website. Miniature Bearings Australia also list a large variety of miniature engineering products.
