    So I’m not sure if this goes here but...
    In short: I bought 100 2mm grade 5 ceramic bearings, only needed 1. If you are at least a basic member here, and find yourself searching for one(because you were tinkering and sent it flying across your garage) and see that you can only buy a million at a time, and that makes you sad/frustrated, let me know and I’ll mail you a couple.

    I bow, to both your use of gratuitous overkill to solve your problem and to your generosity towards complete strangers.

    Interesting, I need 99 2mm ceramic bearings but I am too cheap to buy 100.


    Just kidding.. Very nice offer Micah.

    haha I probably could have found them in smaller quantities... but I'm a sucker for amazon prime.

    That feeling of, "I can't freaking believe I just did that." is punishment enough. Hopefully someone will take me up on it, mostly to confirm I'm not alone.

    As I'm about to take apart a few knives and foresee the above scenario regarding garages and airborne bearings occurring, I'd like a couple. Happy to cover postage costs. PM Sent

    Any idea if that is the size that goes in a spyderco Manix 2?

    I’m pretty sure it’s over twice as big. 3/16” or something. The 2mm bearings are just for the detents in frame/liner/compression locks. The bearing in a manix 2 is essentially the lock itself.
