How do I Identify a Boss?
Identify if the roller has bosses. A roller with bosses has steel slugs welded inside the ends of the tube. Bearings that are too small to fit into the tube can be press fit into the bosses.Br/>
How do I Identify a Welded Axle with Bosses?
Identify if the roller has a welded axle. A roller with welded axles will have bosses that are welded directly to the axle. It will not have internal bearings.
How do I Measure Bosses?
If the boss is recessed,use a tape measure to find the distance the boss is recessed inside the tube. Measure to the nearest 1/32″.
If the boss is extruded,use a tape measure to find the distance the boss is extruding past the tube. Measure to the nearest 1/32″.
The tube length is also an important piece of information for rollers with a boss. Based on the tube OD and bearing OD,Heinrich Brothers can determine the appropriate boss size.
