Good to know Brendan. My do not spin but are original. Sounds like there shouldn't be an issue then.

I am in for a set then as well.

:: The e27 "bearings" are simple bushings made from plastic
:: (delrin or similar). Any machinist can make them for you
:: if you supply ID, OD, and length. I know that KKMI has
:: made some for e27s...
::
:: Buzz's bushings should work fine (if he will make
:: them)--he will cut them with a C&C lathe to the original
:: dimensions. You may need to trim length (sand or cut
:: with bandsaw)
::
:: Even if your hull had a "spinner" in the past thus
:: enlarging the hole for them, you should still be OK, as
:: bushings should be glued (ie: vinylester) into the hull.
