TNT Mk V Bearing thrust plate size?

TNT Mk V Bearing thrust plate size?

Postby J_knievel » Wed Jun 05, 2019 11:57 am

Hey everyone

I'm admittedly taking the lazy route on this one. That is, I know I can remove the bearing plug underneath and measure the plate size but I'm hoping someone just has this info on-hand.

What I'm looking for is the thrust plate diameter on the TNT Mk V bearing. I'm going top try adding a sapphire thrust plate and just need to know what size to order. Installation instructions have already been talked about in another thread so I'm good with all that.

FYI, this is where I'm ordering from: https://www.esslinger.com/round-sapphir ... -mm-thick/

Thanks!

Actually, all you need to do is to lift your platter and measure the diameter of the bearing. That will give you the maximum size of the plate. Since only a point of the plate is used by the ball bearing, the actual size of the of the plate is non-critical.

That makes sense, thanks! I’ll post my impressions once I do the mod.
