Gimbal and bearings
Posted 19 August 2005 - 02:48 PM
don't have bearings within the curved pipe section where the arm's pin enters. If is that the case,
does it make much difference?

Why are you asking?
Someone offered you a gimbal without bearings? (just a joke!!)
Or trying to build one?
Did you visited the hbsboard.com?
Best regards from Buenos Aires (pretty close, eh?)

Perhaps you are refering to the arm post?? PRO and others have the bearings and the 3A type do not.
I just put the bearings on my 3A arm and love it!!

I´m curious, Did you add the bearings in the handle or in the arm (like the Steady Rig arm)?
In either case: Did you have the work done by a machinist or just replaced the part (wich part?) with an updated one?

I intend to place bearings in both places. The gimbal was was done in a CNC. Btw. where do you live in Buenos Aires, I have some friends from there(River Plate supporters)

I live in a neigbourhood near downtown.
Even dough I work every weekend on the transmissions of football matchs, I´m not a big fan of any team.
Regarding your gimbal, I don´t think is necesary to have bearings in both sides. This could be just a redundancy( did you visited the hbsboard.com site?).
Check out the steady rig site and check out the bearings in the pin of their arm.
Agora vou embora ouvendo os paralamas do suceso, chao...

I could see that the Steady Rig arm has a knob in the pin assembly to perform what you´re talking about.
