I ordered two sets of the cheap AC bearings from VXB that I had originally used.
One note on VXB bearings. I bought a set of bearings for my mill head, not for the spindle, but for the drive area. The ''grease'' in the bearings looked like a mixture of sand and tar. It was stiff enough that it actually spun the bearing in the bore. These were sealed bearings and I didn't catch it when I installed them.
I would wash out the new bearings and apply some good grease when you install them. https://www.amazon.com/Kluber-Isofl...LEX+NBU+15&qid=1593889295&s=industrial&sr=1-5
