I got into some Chinese bearings 4 or 5 years ago and the metal cages wouldn't last a dozen tanks of fuel.

I then changed to name brand bearings but some of these were even made in China - But I didn't have any more trouble.

What bearings Jim?  So we stay away from them.

I didnt buy the ms360 even for $120 + ship.  By the time I got done with it figuring I would have more then it would sale for local. Looks like a $250 tops type saw when rebuilt, so $200 - $250. JMO .  Not worth it to me.

The way I understand it even SKF and Nachi have plants in mainland China.

Those bearings had no lettering whatever on them. They came from that RCBearings company in AZ. I'm sure he has a different source after that fiasco. You had to measure the bearings and look the measurements up to know the bearing number. They were cheap but worth even less.

Those 036 and 360 saws are very nice but I have too many Husky's and Dolmars that do that work to be interested.

Not having a problem here and I am doing it on some goofy 'open system' android tablet! If you are on Windows check your security settings.
