I simply use two pieces of pipe, one inside the other along with a 
little grease.
I've also used TB-3s and TB-4s and the Yaesu bearings. I may try the 
oversize pillow block with a weatherproof bearing  that can be greased.
I understand a piece of Oak soaked in oil and properly mounted works 
well too.
