Looks like my pipe bender project is on the way. Found some #120 chain Morse made in USA. And A pile of new bearings. The biggest 2"ID all I kept was the new stuff the chain was new. I picked up 5, 10' pieces. No sprockets yet I'll go back next week.

-- What are you going to build with that roller chain? I have some 120 sprockets I am not using if you had some thing in mind. I could use that chain if you decide you want to sell it, I use a lot of it on my Cleveland ditchers. I love junk yard finds!!!:)

true temper:I might have to take you up on the sprockets. I want to build a tubing bender. Hears a thread of the start of the bender. And a drawing of it from George. I think I need at lest a 26T or bigger but I will need two of them. From what I'm finding 6,000lbs is the working lode of the #120 chain. It will take two strands of chain to make the working load required.

I wonder ,Although I love to hear of anyone finding good stuff,if these bearings have not been thrown out for a reason i.e they are worn out maybe not .Have fun.Alistair

Alistair: I don't think any of the bearings wear used. From what I looked at the paint is still intact around the bolt holes not scratched or chipped off. There just dirty, there wear some that wear defiantly used black with old grease.
