    I got a couple of igus bushings (plain bearing) from a local supplier. To be honest if the bushing is gone then the roller bearings and seals may need replacing too. I've just taken mine apart today and the bearing had collapsed. Generally they're very easy to service completely.

    Seals? I only got one seal on mine, near the crank thread!

    The cruddy sealed bearing is still fine, smooth with no play but in the kit i bought you get a new sealed bearing aswell as the bush so i'll probably do the bearing too.

    To reduce load on the server, large, fast moving threads like this need to be canned now and again.

    This one has had a good innings!
