Seems too cheap. Even off-the-shelf wheel bearings are $5-8 each, although 
I don't know what kind of price I might get if I bought 50 of them. To tool up to 
make a real needle bearing sounds pretty costly, but I've never investigated 

It makes me wonder if he meant $200 each, if someone bought 50.

If this is really $200 for 50 and we need two sizes (upper and lower) then I'd 
think that for $400 we could get a lifetime supply for everybody. I'd almost be 
willing to make that investment, with the understanding that I'd be selling 
them for more than the straight $4 price. $10 would still be a bargain and $15 
would be in line with common bearings of similar sizes.
