    You should run a few on ebay to sell at say 25 bux shipped, you may be surprised.
    If someone else is not making them.
    It's always fun when a few hours on your machines save a big bunch of money..

    That good idea ,in off season could make a bunch.Is there anything more durable with same slippery texture as UHMW.

    How about oil filled UHMW?

    I believe wood is still used for such things. Hard maple?

    Hi,

    White oak is quite common for these types of needs. But plastic is cheaper and easier.

    The steady bearing for supporting 50' power shaft on big auger that was built in 1990 has allways been outside.I made them from maple and 6 out of 18 are original,those 6 are looking ugly now but initially was hoping to get 2-3 yrs.,this auger has moved a lot of grain.

    Wel, if you know your costs, put a few on ebay without making them. 2 weeks to ship them.
    If no one orders, no loss..

    There are various grades of UHMW, different molecular weights I believe. For example, the best UHMW we use is blue in colour, but I can't recall its exact properties. It costs more, so best to test some first (see below).

    Be aware that white UHMW can break down after a few years from UV (it becomes brittle).

    I would ask your supplier for advise and get samples of a few other types and mix them in with the ones you have just made. Do a comparison after a season.

    Personally, I doubt there is anything better than UHMW for wear.
