I am using wheelbarrow bearings that have a 35mm OD with half inch ID...no idea
why they are made that way but they are cheap at $11.50 AUD a pair (with
washers and split pin)
Also WJ, I am still trying to draw a plan for the build your own paintball ....too
much fun playing with the protoype.....send me a snail mail address to my e-,mail
address and I will send a diagram that will be far easier than anything I can draw
on a computer.....
