Can I buy your stock lower guide bearing? One of my bearings must have fallen off during a move, and really I just need the lower right side bearing with its bolt/nut/washer(s).

You can buy those bearings all over the place for cheap. And it should not be too hard to find a bolt/nut/washer at your local hardware store.

Cheers,

There is a bushing and there is a cylinder that the bolt threads into. The cylinder looks available from rikonparts.com but the bushing looks discontinued.

My point was that many of those parts are not manufacturer specific and can be sourced from many different places. Since you have an existing one to measure, it should be relatively easy to find suitable replacements from many different sources. Here is the parts diagram for the lower guide bearings:

None of those parts, AFAIK, are unusual or specific to the machine. For example, the bolt (#106) is just a standard metric M5×20 hex head socket screw. Part #108 is just an ordinary washer. The bushing you mention (#110) is labeled as a ‘tube’ in the Rikon parts diagram, and it gives a mfg. part number of 1-JL20042002. From the diagram, it appears it is there just to reduce the bearings bore to match the size of the screw holding it in place, and a quick google for the part number turns up a fairly common flange bushing (aka: flanged sleeve bearing):

And the bearing looks to be a pretty common 608 (eg. 608RS for sealed, 608ZZ for shielded) bearing. It should be stamped on the side of the bearing and you can measure to verify. Those have an 8mm bore that needs to be reduced to 5mm to match the screw holding it in place. I did a quick search at McMaster Carr and sure enough, they have 5mm shaft diameter flange bushings with 8mm outside diameter in different lengths.

The thing is that these tool companies don’t really make a lot of the stuff that goes into them. And almost all of the hardware is available from many different sources.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: Please measure and verify the above – parts diagrams and cross references are not always 100% accurate!
