How would one know if they indeed received genuine TKO bearings. They sell their bearings at a premium why would you not package them with a TKO label.
yes it common to receive tko bearing in small ziplock bag. One would know if they received genuine TKO bearing by looking at the outside race of the bearing mine all say TKO hope this help

I think the title of this thread should have been,
"Peter Packs Precision Precariously?"

from now on your items will come in expensive labeled cards. your price per bearing just went up 5.00 ea. 2.00 for shipping and 3.00 for handling.

so...... still want your clutch bell bearings at 15.00 each?

peter is a very good friend of mine, i am one of the very few who understand how important it is to offer the best product possible at the cheapest price possible to customers. wanna pay a premium price for a premium product no prob cant wait to see your next invoice.

You have made things all better now with you sarcastic response. You would have been better off supporting your friend instead of playing the victim.

For the last time this was not a bash. Just a simple question that VERY FEW WHO UNDERSTAND on how to answer it.

Forgive me for ordering directly through the company for the first time.

If he was a very good freind of yours youd think youd spend the time to explain why he does what he does. With a freind like you I dont think he needs any enemys. This guy works hard to sale a excellent product at a good price. And you got to jump in and be a jack.... about it.

I went to a big race and was shopping in that hobbyshop. An engine modder friend of mine was working there that day. I noticed these real expensive ceramic bearings hanging on the wall with the hobby shop's name on them. I asked him about the bearings, turned out they were repackaged tko's with a major price jump. I'll take the baggy. I'm friends with the local hobbyshop owner and when i bought some tko's they were plopped in my bare hand, lol. No baggy, no nothing. No bling going on there!
