New altitude bearings for the ATM from NMT new
      #6367913 - 02/10/14 09:18 AM Attachment (34 downloads)

Our new "crescent" aluminum bearings. These are not cast aluminum, but rather extruded with an open tubing framework that is welded together. These are available in natural aluminum finish, or powder-coated a textured black (see images or website link). Very rigid and lightweight.

Wow. Very nice. Are they chamfered or squared?

Thanks David. Just a very slight chamfer to alleviate sharp edges and make powder coating a bit easier.
