How do you secure your weapon axle in your mounts?

They tried a bushing in the frame to try to help cushion the shaft but the ended up just blowing out
I don't think they use them anymore

Ever thought about needle bearings? I like them more than ball bearings, mostly because they spread the force of a hit out over a greater portion of the shaft. Of course, if you've only blown one ball bearing after all that abuse, it probably doesn't matter.

Needle bearings could make the bot last a lot longer before a major repair, though Very Happy

not using needle bearings may be due to the possibility of the 'needle' rollers damaging the shaft. With the radial loads that weapon shafts may be subjected to, if the material of the rollers are harder than that of the shaft, then the rollers may mar the shaft and therefore reduce the bearing's effectiveness. I think that was the main reason why I've never chosen to use a needle roller bearing for a weapon application.
