Default C4, C5, C6 bearing flange failures

If anyone has a failed flange on their bearings, may I please have the failed part? I will pay for shipping, we want to do some failure analysis and see why it failed. Please call me ASAP, I am working with VanSteel on this to see that that issue goes away.

I can maybe get you one. My customer bought the cheap stuff (C4) Well after 6 turns at the first auto-x. Snap her off right.

C4, C5, any/all are valuable to us. The video above is a C4. Thanks!
