Default Source for cheap engine bearings

I've got a .18 motor that at this point I don't really care about, but it needs new bearings to run. Can anyone tell me where I can buy some inexpensive ($10 range per set) engine bearings? Maybe a bearing supply company, etc..?

find a industrial ball bearing supplier in your area, bring them you bearings and ask them for high speed ceramic, replacements I get SKF ceramic replacements for my engines and buggy for 1/3 of the cost of the hobby shop, or any on-line retailer , same goes for O-rings, I use Canada Bearings and B.O.S.S. (bearings and oil seals specialists). The novarossi rear cover o-rings can be had for $3.00 for a 20 pack of high temperature (500F) 0-rings, same goes for carb o-rings and a;; other o-rings.

Great bearings and VERY cheap!!!

People uses his beariings in model planes all over the world. Last year he started with bearings for our car engines. I put one front bearing in my old Novarossi Plus 4 engine ($ 1,89!!!) and untill now (approx one gallon) the bearing works great
