    Just checked my bearings and the play is less than .004 at 105 hours.

    I am surprised the bearings are so healthy for over 100 hours.

    Yours are in good shape, but due to the hours i would replace them. The nylon cages break down over time and will fail without warning.

    I typically get readings of .005 +/- .001

    When they go .007 to .010 i recommend replacement.
