they dont need to be brand new just ball bearing

Um maybe ebay. And what the project your working on
Try visiting hunting stores - they're not free, but the small ball bearings they use for BB gun ammo, or slingshot ammo will be fairly cheap.
Or do you need something larger?

thanks but i need the actual ball bearings not the inside ball things
Skateboards usually have a pair of genuine ball-bearings in each wheel (8 per board). If you can find some old or discarded ones they're not that hard to extract.
thanks i might go to a scrap yard and fetch a couple of tools and get some scooters,skateboards and bikes they break open with a few hits
Don't try to break them - a spanner or socket is all you need to take skateboard wheels off.
i know that but i need 30 little balls from the bearings and 5 whole bearings
Ah, I think I had some steel BB's once (pretty sure they went rusty...) - find a place that sells BB guns, crossbows, fishing tackle and stuff - see if they have any?
i would its just im trying to get them from scrap things like scooters,bikes and things and dont really want to pay for em and did u have a bb gun?
I have two BB pistols, they're great. One rather long shot is to see if there's anywhere around you does "shot blasting" or "shot peening" and see if you can get a handful. but that is a long oneL
no where around here does that stuff
do u use your pistols i really want 1 but my mum and dad wont let me
i need something larger
id would go to the local skate shops, and ask for any ball bearings that are old, like extracted from boards in for repair...
For larger bearings, try scrapyards and motor shops.
