We aim to remove the stress from buying engineering parts. Our customers don't have to search through endless aisles of products for the parts they need. Instead, you can browse through our detailed online catalogue and order from your home or workplace.
You can't have ball bearings without balls, and here at Simply Bearings, we stock the best. In particular, we stock Ital brand chrome steel ball bearings. These are made from Chromium AISI 52100 steel and are hardened all the way through the ball, meaning they are heavy duty and will last a long time. They are hardened to 60 - 67 on the Rockwell Scale. These hardened 52100 chrome steel balls are available in a range of sizes, from 0.5 mm to 4mm.
These steel ball bearings are suitable for use in cycle headsets and cranks, in industry and engineering, and in calibration and examination tools. They can also be used in arts and crafts, particularly jewellery and model making.
These hardened 52100 chrome steel balls have a long life, but they do need to be kept oiled to avoid corrosion. They are magnetic and cannot be drilled.
Once you have chosen the chrome steel ball bearings that you need from our online catalogue, you can order and pay for them using our secure online checkout. We accept a range of payments including credit and debit cards, PayPal and bank transfer. If you are not sure exactly which chrome steel ball bearings are best for your project, you can contact our friendly and knowledgeable staff by telephone or email. They will be happy to help you with any queries.
