I usually check the local scrap yard once a month, needle bearings are used on the inner joint on any front wheel drive car or drive shaft u joint, i just use my calipers to measure which ones i need, they don't charge me anyting for them. https://www.locateballbearings.com/Content/CVJoint2.jpg

Found a work around ordering 3/16" linear shaft cut to 1".

No one uses these anymore I guess.

Hard dowel pins could be considered a needle bearing

SurfRainbow was able to source the bearings but I would have to buy in bulk(200@$0.98 a piece). Amazon had pins. But were just case hardened and chamfered on one side.

Have you got any transmission supply houses in your area? Bearing shops sell loose rollers as well as balls.
