Boca Bearing for the ceramic balls (G5 bearings are fine)...The company I ordered the sapphire plates from was shown in the thread on this subject and the link to that post is below.. I highly recommend that you read the entire thread. You will find a wealth of information.....

I to found some wear on my 5/16" steel inverted ball bearing. Since I had a mini torch handy, I thought I'd give it a try. I heated it up until I saw the puff of smoke when the glue released. Once that happened, the ball moved pretty freely in the seat. Now to get it out! I cleaned the bearing with 91% alcohol making sure that it was moving around as freely as possible in its seat. Once cleaned and dry, on a hunch I had some DAP Blue Stik on hand. I stuck it on the ball, wiggled it around a bit and it popped right out. Maybe I just got lucky since it took about 10 minutes total. I'm going to replace it with ceramic. Found these on Amazon, should last about 10 lifetimes.

tmurry619,
Which table are you using, please? Brent has stated the ball size for a Prime is 3/8 inch.

VPI Scout Classic Special Signiture which is basically basically a Classic III on a Scout plinth. Something that Harry put together in 2015.

Nice combination...so basically, a square plinth Scout with a Classic platter and a valhalla wired JMW 10 with VTA. Can you post a picture?

You have a Very nice, with mods, what I will designate as a "Super" Scout!!! FWIW, My Scout table converted me into a VPI "junkie" for life!
