This is not for me, it is for my friend, who does not use usenet. He needs some bearings and he wants to find standard industry designations (like 6011, etc). I checked machinery handbook and did not find that sort of table, even though it talks at length about bearings.
He needs some 1" ID by 2" OD bearings. I know that McMaster has them, but he (and I) is not sure whether there are different specs. And he is hoping he can find a better deal on ebay if he knows what codes to look for. He wants to basically make a wood shaper that would spin at23,000 RPM. (!). i
