What do they call this type of bearing? The main housing is held in place with 2 large set screws. Does anybody know of a source for the threaded insert sleeve? Thanks

It's a tapered roller bearing, originally these were all Timken manufacture. Unless it's from a common piece of machinery you will likely have to have a machine shop make the sleeve.

Its application is the drive shaft of a saw blade on a Frick sawmill. Yes there are Timken tapered bearings in each end of the cast housing. The threaded ends of the sleeve put pressure on the Timken bearings and lock it to the shaft. The shaft diameter is 2 3/16" The bearing is held in place with 2 large set screws one on each side ( you can see one of the set screw holes in the photo. I know its not a pillow block or flange bearing. I just wondered what this type was called.

This bearing and support is similar to a pinion bearing support in a Timken Rear Axle. It is adjustable for depth and pre load.

just sayin,

Frick is still in business, has a website, and says they have a large inventory of parts to fit 1920s to modern times.
