Cutless is the trade
name for a duramax nitrile rubber bearing, as a supplier of water
lubricated shaft bearings we were reminded of this. It has become generic but it is fiercely protected. They are often called cutlass as well and we know what people mean. I prefer water
lubricated shaft bearing!
We supply shaft bearings as a clearance fit designed to be bedded on epoxy
, these are easy to install and remove as the epoxy
softens with some heat, or they will split from a grp tube (thin epoxy under 1.00mm ish doesn't bond but does support)
Clearances can be found if you search for maritex aquarius calculator, these are fully composite (no rubber) bearings. If you are assembling with the shaft in place (supported) you are also able to check the carrier alignment as the bearing should slide in easily by hand and you should be able to spin it in the carrier on the shaft.
Good luck, getting out press fit bearings can be involved!
