May I ask about wheel Bearings?


found the steel rod for under $5. now, the question is do i want "hot rolled" or "cold rolled" steel?

I'll want it inflexible but also want the ability to cut it down w/ a hack saw and drill a hole for the cotter pins.

and so far, i've not had luck on locating "Tee Bolts" big enough to support 1/2" rod.

Either will work--Cold rolled is stronger. Will be a bit harder to cut and drill. Less likely to bend under the weight of the chicken coop.

i've got the rod in place. I'll keep an eye out for "Tee Nuts" that are slightly larger than the 1/2" cold rolled steel bar.

I"ll keep it off the wheels until I put them in place. But for now, i can move it easily!

Thanks!
