How To Measure and Cut-To-Size Policy [X]

Cut-To-Size Items are Non-Returnable!

As per our Shipping and Returns Policy, custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-returnable. If you need an over- or undersized item, note it under "Comments" during Checkout. Cut-to-size orders have an acceptable cut tolerance of 1/8" (0.125"), so clarify if the adjustment is to be made on the (+) or (-) side of the saw blade. Please review our full return and shipping policy here.

Measure Twice, Cut Once

Since custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-refundable, be very careful while measuring your dimensions. As each cut is nominal, even the slightest miscalculation could be costly.

How to Use a Measuring Tape

Extend your tape measure several inches to find the 1 and 2 inch markers. In between the inch markers you’ll find 16 equally spaced tick marks.

Measure by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. As the increments decrease, so does the length of the mark. For example, 1/2" has a bigger mark than 1/4" which has a bigger mark than 1/8". The smallest mark follows at 1/16". Please be aware that some measuring tapes may have even smaller increments.

Features of a Measuring Tape: Sliding End Hook

The sliding end hook is designed for two different types of measurements. An outside measurement (where the hook of the tape hangs over an edge), requires the hook to slide out a bit to account for the thickness of the material. When making an inside measurement (where the hook will push up against a surface), the clip slides in, again, accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts to guarantee an accurate measurement (as far as the tape is concerned).

NYLECO TR - Overview

Green Nyloil® tubes are self-lubricating and have superior machinability, performance, and durability compared to traditional bearing grade materials. During the manufacturing process, cast nylon is carefully dispersed with an oil-based lubricant to produce a material that has a 25% lower coefficient of friction than other nylon grades and is internally homogeneously lubricated. This high-strength polymer is able to operate in hostile environments where lubrication is difficult or otherwise impossible, and its lubricant won't spin out, dry out, or drain out even in demanding conditions.

Nyloil® tubes are green in color and are suitable for most bearing applications. They are not safe for food contact.

Nylon in general has been a reliable material for replacing metals in many applications, especially in designs where long part life and noise reduction are important. It is one of the oldest and most widely used engineered mechanical plastics owing in part to its winning combination of dimensional stability, wear resistance, toughness, versatility, and overall availability.


Note: All tubes come sufficiently oversized on the OD dimension and sufficiently undersized on the inside dimension (ID) to allow for machining to size listed.
