I doubt that is a good idea, the actual cost of the bearing races is small, they come in the £5 to £25 range.
If you consider the whole pillow block, standard ones add about 50% but obviously specials could be much more.
I buy mine from Luton SKF
On line catalogue:
Perhaps a better approach would be to get a cost for all the work to purchase and fit each bearing, and use that as the basis for the sponsorship.
I got an estimate, 5 year's ago to just have the races replaced at Watford, average £130 a bell.
Its costing me about £25 a bell to do it myself.
If the cost of engineering the gudgeons to take a ball race and the cost of manufacturing and fitting frame bearing plates had to be added, that could be multiplied by 5 to 10.

I do not work Wednesday Thursday or Friday.

We are trying to raise money to rehang the ring of 10 at Beccles, Suffolk, on ball bearings. One of the things suggested for raising money was "Buy a Bearing". Could somebody either give me an indication or point me in the right direction for finding out the price of ball races used for such a job. The bells range in weight between 6cwt and 25cwt. Obviously the cases and labour will add more expense but I would just like to know the basic price of one bearing.
