CamonWheels is offering up some new V-Groove roller wheels for under $8 bucks shipped. Images show the grooved wheels fitting on 15mm rods, 1/4" rod, and 1" PVC. The overall OD of the wheel (outside diameter) is at 1". If you were to build a track dolly of sorts, the V-Groove or U-groove type wheels will help keep them on track.
I purchased 2 sets when they were $5. He had a note in the comments saying that it was just a promotional price to see how people respond to them.
They started at $5, then went to $7.50... now $10... thanks for the post Emm... [email protected][email protected] doubles his price with the increased demand... as usual.
Maybe these are of better quality, but I've bought a similar wheels a year back from ebay, but the bearing was terrible and had such a big side lash (you were able to tilt the bearing at least 5-6 degrees)
That made the whole thing unusable.
I can think of half a dozen things I want to do with them. The delivery was quick. They came wrapped in sandwich bags which was a little strange but they were perfectly fine.
Thanks for that info billybob.
I bought two sets of these and just received them a couple days ago. They are a bit smaller then I was expecting but will work pretty well. The orange portion is a hard plastic. The bearing is not abec rated but is pretty smooth. The bearing is 18mm with a bore of 7mm. All in all they are pretty nice for the price.
I went ahead and bought 2 sets, now they are sold out. Pretty cool design and great price.
There are still 7 sets available as of 4;55 pm Pacific time.
I bought a set. I have an idea for them.
@scottrellwi - whoa, sold out I guess..
Do you have a link to the wheels? The current link just goes to track.
