Rod Ends and Sphericals | Boston Gear

Boston Gear rod ends and spherical bearings are intended for applications using linkages where a bearing must accommodate significant misalignment under heavy radial or thrust loads involving slow rotation or oscillation.

Our spherical bearings are normally mounted in a pre-designed housing, while the rod ends are provided in a housing that is attached to the linkage by the integral thread. Rod ends are available in both left and right hand - as well as male and female thread designs for exceptional versatility.

Product Features
