Inserts - Tapered Fit - Finserts - For Wood and Plastics


Finserts provide strong metal threads in wood, composition board and thermoplastics such as nylon, polystyrene, cellulose acetate and cycolac. By distributing stress over a greater surface area, firm permanent fastening is ensured.

The fins give higher holding strength in softer materials. Available with one, two or three fins for varying material thickness. Finserts prevent splintering, splitting and thread pullout.

Bearings and Spare Parts

Where alternative parts are offered, we make no claims as to their suitability. Selection of the most suitable bearings and parts is the responsibility of the customer. We recommend you replace bearings with the same type if that type is working well. High speed caged bearings are better suited to handle vibration than standard caged bearings.
