I am desinging a shaft and bushing combination. THe shaft will have a medium load with low rpm and occasional use. THe bushing will not be lubricated.

I am curious about the surface roughness specs for the shaft and bearings as well as the dimsional tolerances for the shaft and bearing.

This depends on the actual load, surface area, material and operating environment. Typically, you will see a surface roughness 8 Ra or better for contact surfaces which are bronze.

Go to SKF, or other bearing manufacturers and research for a simular bushing. See what they use.

Report back!
