Hi all, I am playing with one of these and find it has two sizes of ball bearings: 1/4″ for the thrust bearings and 7mm approx for the others. Is this right?

Hardly likely, is it?
I rather doubt Shipley back then had even heard of a “7mm approx.” bearing balls, and when the cheaply available 1/4″ were used elsewhere on the machine.

Yes, but they probably knew what 9/32 was :mrgreen:
