I bought a 10in wheel from Grizzly. When I received it, I realized that it did not come with bearings. Basically, it has a 3/4in hole. I am assuming that I really need to have bearings. Can I buy bearings for this wheel or am I out of luck.

I think you'll need to bore out the hole in the wheel in order to find bearings large enough to allow you to have a big enough shaft to handle the load.

 

I actually just did this for myself. If you have access to a mill or a lathe, it is pretty easy to do. I don't think I have any pics of the process, but here is a video of the wheel running:

Got the same wheel. I put it on an axle and pillow blocks and mounted it that way.
