You are confusing 'shielded' bearings, which are dust proof, with 'sealed bearings' which are water proof. Check this pbf from a bearing maker http://www.promshop.....r_bearings.pdf Search for the word 'water' and check page 2 where it states that their sealed bearings are water proof
Thanks for the kind words

Personal message on this subject
I was getting ready to write an upgraded version of the suveran review for a site nearly two years ago when a personal disaster stroke. I lost my email account and all my contacts. If the owner is reading this by any chance, please email me. My address is in my signature.

Sudsy has done a couple that I'd like to see preserved in RM&R or some other archive too. I don't lurk or post in Distance Casting enough to know all of what's been there, but there are some very knowledgeable souls (Blackbeard, for one) who may well have diagrammed things that ought to be kept forever, or as near to it as this site permits .... in the meantime, I printed Alan's Sargus 8000 review. Into the looseleaf binder it goes. Don't own one, don't expect to, but .... ya never know. Especially if someone starts machining upgrade parts.
