Thrust Bearing for 5mm motor shaft??

Hey guys....

I found these on eBay...

Thrust Bearing 1

Thrust Bearing 2

Will these work with my 5mm brushless motor shaft?

And would you place the thrust bearing right up against the motor? In between the motor and the motor coupling?

Thanks in advance!

possibly...I would want to know their rpm rating though before I installed them(wouldn't do to discover that they were rated less than what the motor was turning...)
2nd Q: yes, with approx 0.005" play(about the thickness of a piece of printer paper)

#1 with the brass cage is the one to get , the brass one handles the speed better . If you find a small thrust bearing that is rated at the speeds we operate at let me know , 10-12K is about the practical limit but it does not mean they will not work for a while at 20K I just bought some from McMaster-Carr.

I've had no issues with these http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pro...?prod=dh-53136 I'll grant that they may cost more...but then I usually need other stuff and that brings the per item shipping cost down .
