We stock steel and bronze lined studded male rod end bearings in a wide range of both metric and imperial sizes. The male bearings are externally threaded and are available in both right and left hand threaded versions. All steel / bronze lined studded male rod ends will require occasional maintenance in the form of lubrication.
Steel and bronze lined studded male rod end bearings have good resistance to wear, but the fact that the two surfaces make contact and must slide against each other means that the bearings need regular lubrication.
The MB series is a standard range of male rod ends for general-purpose use. They are best suited to medium to heavy loads in mechanical and industrial applications where both resistance to wear and low friction are needed. These bearings are suitable for applications that require precision motion transfer and long bearing life. They are used throughout industry but also by hobbyists and model builders.
The housing is made of 230M07PB zinc-plated blue and white passivate (silver/clear) with stainless steel (303L).The race is sintered bronze SAE660 and is oil impregnated. The sintering compacts the bronze under pressure and makes it stronger.
These steel / bronze lined studded male rod ends can operate in a temperature range of -34 C to +149 C. Thread sizes are from ? to 7/16 UNF for the Imperial-sized products and M5 x 0.8 up to M16 x 2 in the metric products.
