> It has been interesting seeing all the posts about this. The real
question is why would you ever use a TB3 or TB4 at $161 and $185 (from 3Star)
when you can have a REAL bearing for only $30.98???? Made with REAL steel,
seals and a zerk fitting?
Because it's not designed for years of outdoor use? The fatal flaw in
these machine shop type pillow blocks is that the only thing holding the
mast is an Allen screw which WILL rust and then you have to cut off the TB
since you can't remove the screw easily any more.
