Broken fingernails, bent pullers and bad tempers when replacing worn bearings could be all in the past. Literally cut in two, the Wyco self-aligning bearing is offered up to a shaft and clamped in place, without having to remove pulleys or their like which may also be on the shaft. Misalignment is avoided by using dowelled faces on the two halves of the bearing cartridge, with replacement made simpler the next time round. The split roller bearing is available in a range of sizes to suit shaft diameters from 40mm-150mm.
