Not familiar with 750....or 850....but you made me look: http://machinedesign.com/basics-design/ ... y-bearings

Looks like 850-T5 would be similar to 660 bronze. Not sure where 750 falls in..... can't seem to find a spec on that....but then....I'm not planning on using any.

Like I say....I don't work with fun stuff like aluminum much.....most of what I work with is 'harder than a bull's horn'.

This type of mystery is why I have a hardness tester.

Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!
