    Where to find offset or eccentric bushings?

    Hi,

    I'm after some offset bushings so that I can use them to adjust bearings left and right. Same as what the V bearing wheels use to adjust the play out of them.

    I have search a few online places but can't seem to find any.

    The size I'm after is.
    OD 1/2" (to fit inside 1/2" bearing ID)
    Length about 1 1/14"

    Then have a Hex head so that you can put a spanner on and adjust.

    Other than bugging someone to make me up a handfull of these out of hex shaped bar, there must be something like this already for sale.

    Any ideas?

    Peter, Would eccentric cam rollers fit into your project? Just a thought.

    My Wadkin table saw uses them for alignment and height adjustment of the table and sliding table. It used to be a reasonably common alignment method in a lot of equipment. Simple to make if you have access to a lathe with a 4 jaw, but I don't think you'll find anything off the shelf and if you did odds are it would be metric.
