An example of our part number structure is as follows:

The Thomson A-162536 ball bushing designation is based on a nominal 1/16 ^inch. In other words, the "16" represents 16/16 inch Internal diameter of 1 inch, the "25" represents 25/16 inch, the outer diameter or 1.56 inch and the "36" represents 36/16 inch, the overall length of 2.25 inches. In general, the 1/16 inch principle applies to all our bearings. The dimensions of other products are similarly designated, in inches, or referenced in the Thomson catalogs.
