1. Crushed two linear bearings until the balls popped out. I should have used less force and made the hole a teeny tiny bit bigger.

    1. @adiwan that sounds dirty and painful outside of contact

      1. @ndogmario I just printed a holder for a Dremel rotary tool for my CNC machine. It needs some linear bearings (with steel balls to glide on) and there are holes that fit them. Due to inaccuracies the hole is too small for a pressure fit. I used a drill to carve it a little bit bigger, however I missed some spots. While forcing the bearings with a vise the bearing was compressed within the hole. The tolerances within the bearing are soo tight that this little bit of difference in the radius made a ball pop out.

        1. @adiwan Sounds a different kind of painful in context
