Re: More 5400/ KR500 rotor Questions




Roy and John,

Stainless steel balls are available from a number of sources. The best
sources
I know are Small Parts at www.smallparts.com and McMaster-Carr,
www.macmaster-carr.com.
Both have different grades of stainless. You can order directly from
McMaster's web page.
