Original Press Release:

J.W. Winco, Inc. Inch Size Rod End Bearings are Self-lubricating

NEW BERLIN, WI -- J.W. Winco, Inc., a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it now offers WN 648 Self-Lubricating Rod End Bearings in inch sizes.

Rod ends are used in controlling and linking mechanisms in all types of machines.  These RoHS-compliant rod end bearings are suitable for high load, low speed applications with hanging angles, requiring linear, rotational or oscillatory motions.  They are offered in both tapped and threaded stem versions.

The rod end bearings are made of zinc-plated low carbon steel, with right or left hand threads.  The ball socket is low carbon, zinc-plated steel, case hardened.  The external ring is made of a special oil impregnated bronze material, which makes these rod ends self-lubricating, maintenance-free, and guaranteed lowest friction.  In addition, these joints have less increase of clearance after longer operating hours than rod ends with PTFE-surface outer races, and therefore higher life expectancy.

J.W. Winco offers an extensive selection of inch and metric size adjustable levers, cabinet U-handles, plastic and steel hinges and locking mechanisms, revolving and retractable handles, hand wheels, hand cranks, tube connection and conveyor components, inch and metric construction tubing, shock absorption mounts, leveling mounts, hand knobs, spring, ball and indexing plungers, jig, fixture and fastening components, retaining magnet assemblies, toggle clamps, metric casters and wheels, universal joints, oil sight glasses, and metric tools for the industrial and commercial equipment industries.  J.W. Winco’s website catalog, with 3D CAD and online buying, is viewable at
