What happened to stores selling a ball bearing

Postby TexasAlltrac » Tue Sep 28, 2004 6:20 pm

Even bearing specialty houses do not have them.

I have had my MBC built and ready to go but for the ball-bearing I need (3/8")

Any ideas? I have been to Lowes, Home Depot, Autozone, Advanced Auto, Vans Auto, and Purvis Bearing before you say to go to one of these.

I work at Lowe's and straight up, I will tell you the entire store is catered to selling the most product in the most commonly needed types to women.

I work there and don't even shop there much because "real" hardware stores have what I need, when I need it, even if the prices aren't as good.

Ace hardware has a huge isle of shit and has ball bearings. It's where I got the springs and ball bearing for my MBC.
