Not sure I'm brave enough to go off-spec on this or not, but wondering if this bearing would be quieter.   I've noticed on several droids that the Rockler isn't the quietest thing in the universe...

None of them really are quite but at a convention you don't hear it at all.

The stats on this one look to be nigh identical to Rockler, but only $25.  Shipping is another $10, but still a good price comparatively.

I may try one of these out, have to see.

I punched out the holes last night, and bought the bolts today.  From measuring it up, it looks like with VERY slight work it would fit the toolings for the rockler on the top of the frame.  Next is to see how well it performs!
