Attaching things to ball bearings
« on: November 22, 2009, 10:58:26 PM »
Let us say I have a run of the mill ball bearing (inner ring, outer ring.)  Does anyone know how exactly you are supposed to mount stuff to the inner ring?  And yes, I mean axles, I suppose, but any ideas are welcome.

Thanks alot.

Either by a very(!) tight fit, or by clamping it between bushings matching the diameter of the inner ring.
(Glue might help if the fit is less tight).

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
