    Hehe, I was in the Army on a tank for 4 years. Got out May 2001. I just found that bearing while digging through some $hit in the garage. While I was in, I thought it would make a cool conversation peice one day so I snagged it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif It's probably a good 5-6" in diameter. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Yeah, At first I was like, "Oh, just a regular roller bearing".....

    But then, the size of the RADIO in the background made for an interesting reference indeed. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I just finished making that table not to long ago. 8'X4' 1/4" plate top, with 7 2x2 .120 wall crossmembers. The bottom shelf is made from 2x3x1/4 angle, with 3 2x2 square tube cross members. hehe, I thinkit probably weighs a good 400lbs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
