Using bushes in the phenolic presumably means cutting away a lot of the phenolic. Is it reinforced in any way?

I got almost 1200 hours on the standard phenolic bearings as supplied in
the kit. There is no noticeable wear on any of them. I wonder if you
are you adding build time and weight by over designing things?

I don't recall any discussion until now about putting the Rulon bushings in
the phenolic components. I personally would not consider that. However, I
have considered making the phenolic bearings larger in the kit I am working
on now so that I can put replacable bushings in them.
