I just did some research. The thing that I thought was a bushing and not a ball bearing WAS a ball bearing. I'm going to get the black caps off (I thought they were solid plastic) and clean them.

Yeah, I corrected my post - I meant the lines aren't on the nuts. But I don't know who would by nuts with unspecified defects when they need grade 5.

Holes in sides of my "New with defects" bolts

First, I thought I was getting grade 5 bolts based on the ad but the lines that indicate it aren't on the nut. No big deal because I wanted the cheapest I could get and these were the cheapest. But...

Yeah, sound good. Maybe I can think of a way to give the wooden hole some teeth. I've thought of poking the spacer with nails. Maybe I'll do that.

Clamping a small part for drilling

I'm making kind of a bushing and I have to enlarge a hole in a nylon spacer. I did one of two well enough but I damaged my clamps because the spacer spun against the rubber of the clamp. How would...

Should I clean this AC fan myself?

Suddenly I saw a bunch of dirt on the AV vents and beyond (a through-the-wall unit). I'm not sure how long it's been like that. Luckily the vents snap on and off in one piece so I removed it and...
