Does anybody have a source in Toronto for roller bearings?
I need to find new bearings for my brushless motor.

I run my own automation business and I'm always amazed at what you can get from McMaster Carr ( They have about a billion dollars worth of stock on the shelf so almost everything ships today and is here next day. Specify normal shipping (not express) and it is almost guaranteed to be here next day because they have a massive agreement with the courier and do there own cross-border. I think the flat rate shipping is about $10 still.

I sourced some really small, super high speed bearings (100,000 rpm) this week and they had stock for very reasonable prices. Standard bearings for small hobby things are a few bucks at the most.

Don't overlook this option for hobby stuff in general. Tubing, fasteners, adhesives, hardware, foam, plastics, metals, brass, aluminum, picnic tables... They've got it and it's here tomorrow! Online ordering very simple too. Repeat ordering is rediculously quick. I should get a commission cheque!

Hope this helps.

If you're not part of the solution... you may be insoluble!

Not sure if they do roller bearings, but Boca Bearings is very shipping too...

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

There are 2 bearing source in Mississauga. One on Meyereside Dr. Between Dixie and Tomken Road., the other one on Courtney Park Drive. Between Dixie and Tomken Road as Well. I believe both are on the North side of the road.
