Minature Slew Ring/Turntable Bearing???

Minature Slew Ring/Turntable Bearing???

Minature Slew Ring/Turntable Bearing???

I'm looking for a minature internal tooth slew ring. I say minature because everything I've found so far is HUGE. What I'm looking for should be roughly 6" OD x 4.5" ID and very thin (not more than 1/2"). I did find one at Kaydon but it turns out that although it's in their catalog, they've never actually built one and minimun required is way beyond what I need (or can afford on this project).

Here's a link to the Kaydon bearing I'm looking at. Maybe it can help any one of you understand what I'm trying to say: http://datasheets.globalspec.com/ds/50/KAYDONCorporationBearings/02C126EF-3E67-475C-8786-3F360BFED410

I sure would appriciate any help... Thanks in advance.

Buy just the bearing, of which they do sell enough to keep the price affordable..  
Add your own mounting rings and gears, press fitted or bonded or mechanically captured.

That's the route I'm currently looking into but if there was something "pre-packaged" and just a bolt on, I'd rather go that way. Thanks for the input though.
