    I had one of the MF128ZZ flange bearings break on one of my Robos awhile back. I replaced it just fine, but I've been wondering would a similar sized self-lubricating sintered bronze flanged bushing be better for long term wear and performance. I found this one for example. I could find one that is 3.5 mm wide, but 6mm is pretty close and IIRC there's room for the extra width. Just curious if anyone has tried this or thought of it as an upgrade for when their bearings go out. Bad idea/Good idea?

    Nope, not yet. Haven't even investigated. Got other things in the hopper first.
