I thought I'd drop this one here. Thought it might help out someone without much experience at some point.

Thanks for that excellent tutorial.  I’ve never been into any of my spinners yet.  My next challenge.

Go for it Joe! It isn't very difficult to learn to do and most people on there are pretty nice to communicate with!

I see a lot of spinning reels that could use new bearings or upgrade plastic/nylon bushings. Where do you source your generic bearings? 10 for $5 for example) 95% of my work is fresh water so salt corrosion is not a factor. A lot of spinning reels are not worth high end bearing that would cost more then the reel is worth. I just want to get them back into the hands of the owner in better shape. Even without new bearings if I can make them happy my goal is meet.   Thanks

eBay is where I buy most of mine. Common sizes are the cheapest.
Here is an example of a common size reel bearing and you can make an offer for less than the advertised price:
