Thread: OT- Scrap Ball Bearing Value
12-05-2006, 04:29 PM #1
Anyone know if scrap price is better for old ball bearing assemblies than regular steel? I was wondering because of the hardness if they had more scrap value. I have been putting them in with my other scrap but could easily keep them separate.

In small amounts I really don't think it would be worth while. Seperate tubs/buckets for aluminum and copper alloys sure. But scrap ball bearings? They sure ain't gonna be worth what they were new.

Well... some knifemakers like 'em to forge blades out of.. good high quality high carbon steel, and just the right size to forge down into a knife billet.
Don't know if there's enough of a market to separate 'em out though.

How big of balls do the bearings have? I would like to find some 1" or so balls to weld on handles.

Think, "Ball flinger".
Counterweight goes down, arm goes over, sling on the end of the string flings the "shot" a long ways into (miniature) castles, etc.
I want one too
