FRC Teams -
At the start of summer I explored acquiring a large quantity of 1/2" hex bearings and 1/2" hex split shaft collars with the intent of saving teams money. That exploration has lead to me launching a website for all teams to order from in order to satisfy the FRC vendor rules -
In my experience, these are two of the most often used items by FRC teams and buying them in bulk seemed to make sense. Now you can stock up for the season or multiple seasons and spend that saved money on other things.
Teams can buy hex bearings in packs of ten for $30 ($3 per bearing) and split clamp collars in packs of 5 for $20 ($4 per collar.) All items are checked prior to shipping them to ensure you do not receive a defective part. I ran both of these parts in FRC applications in the off-season and did not run into any issues.
More detailed information is available on the website for each item, but here are a few images -
Items will be shipped by the following business day via USPS. I’ve found we can fit 80 hex bearings or hex collars into a priority mail small flat rate box which ships for $7.50.
