Tom’s Toolbox videos are available for viewing on the MiHow2 YouTube channel that was established in 2012.
“Proper Bearing Handling and Storage with SKF Bearings” provides the viewer guidelines on how to get the most out of their bearings before they are even installed. “Properly storing bearings helps to ensure that your investment pays off,” said Randy Breaux, the senior vice president for southern U.S. operations, corporate marketing and strategic planning at Motion Industries. “Proper storage extends the life of the bearing, and therefore reduces downtime.”
