    Several years ago I worked at an Alcoa rolling mill. The roll neck bearings for the 220" were 4 row tapered roller bearings. As I recall they cost roughly $250K apiece. Probably more now.

      I just looked at a job for reconditioning (sandblast and paint) all the structural parts a 175' Ferris wheel - The bearings went so the whole think had to come down. If the bearings were 100,000, my guess is they'd still be a small part of the overall cost
      in Toronto Ontario - where are you?

        I'd say screw the technology, I'll take some plain bearings and automatic oilers.

          And how much for this:
          "
          The largest Bearing has a diameter of 13,3 meters and a weight of 70 tons, according to SKF. It is said to be made for the oil field “Terra Nova” outside the Canadian coast."

            100 grand is small change on structures that cost many millions of dollars.

                Weighs 820 lbs,I'd say $12.95 for shipping is a bargain

                  This company is called "Discount Bearings" - I'd dread to think what the full price should be .

                    Its a bogus number HM261040TD if that's Timken, Try and find that on an official Timken site.

                      Even the worst of the stooge site's suggest that's a 12 x 18mm bearing. Which brings it undone, 3mm per side, not enough to squeeze rollers into.

                          Nowhere it says mm, its probably 12" bore, 18" OD.

                            Amazon has one in stock for $99,246 and it appears to be a "good" Timken part number.

                              That's a pricey bearing! If you need urethane covered bearings you can contact: https://plantech.com/urethane-bearings/
