Default Cereal killer bearings.

So I was trying to brew a imperial/Grand Cru of blue moon to day and my Cereal killer gave me more than a few issues. After giving up and tearing the Cereal Killer apart, the bearing on one of the eccentric cogs has seen better days. I ordered a 3.0 x 6.0 x 2.0 MM replacement, anyone know if that is the correct size.

I have not used it that many times, but most of my brews are twenty plus pounds and I use a drill to drive it, I'm not unhappy with the mill, just want to get it back up and running.

Kind of hard to as it is in a dozen pieces. I measured the post and the hole in the roller and got 31 x 61 by 20. I wrote that off to my cheap micrometers and my good ones are a a friends so I ordered 30 x 60 x 20 and hope that fits. I was hoping for a sanity check on my numbers.

Does it have bushings or ball bearings? It seems that the older ones have bushings and the newer have ball bearings. I think an email to the manufacturer would be the easiest.

It is one of the first ones with ball bearings, i doubt a bushing would have failed. I have asked the retailer and have not heard back.

Still no idea what size bearings but AIH contacted me and they are sending a replacement for the failed roller.

Great customer service.

Did you check the other ones? They may be going bad too.
