Fabricating With Bearing Question

  1. Dec 13, 2011 #1
    have to get up to speed on bearings
    building one off hubs
    using timken type bearings
    what's the correct name for the
    bore the backside of bearing goes into?
    same question for shoulder that keeps
    bearing from going into tube?

    i did some research on this at wikipedia under 'Tapered Roller Bearings'
    'The non-separable inner ring and roller assembly is called the cone, and the outer ring is called the cup'
    plan is to machine shaft for a bearing to fit in each end
    and stay there
    what is a good all round aluminum to use for this?
    about 2" diameter tubing with enough wall to machine
    to hold bearing cup
