And sometimes it's just weird. So a short time ago, I posted in a thread about turntables, and mentioned that "low bearing friction" was a good thing to have in an arm. Next thing I know, the banner ad at the top of the page is hyping me on a "slewing bearing manufacturer". Hmmmm... I never heard of such a thing as a "slewing bearing", it sounded to me like a bearing that suddenly went off track to look at a squirrel. Turns out there actually is such a thing - you can look it up - but I have otherwise no interest in one. Strange, Maybe it's the Russians? Cheers, Larry B.
