Bearing type

I dont know too much about bearings so was looking for help on what type can withstand a pulling force on the inner ring of 100kg, the size of the bearing isn't finalized yet but needs be big enough to grip a bar connecting one side of the inner ring to the other with your hand and apply force while rotating.

RE: Bearing type

To get started, any bearing with a static load rating of 100kg is a possibility. That's tens of thousands of possible bearing codes.

More detail is of course necessary.


RE: Bearing type

Is kg a unit of force? Ok, never mind that.

I'm not sure you can totally rely on the bearing ratings. You plan on putting some kind of bar to the inner ring. I think method of attachment might be important as it can weaken the earing.
