Neoprene Bushing / Roller Bearing

I'd like to cut a neoprene bushing and use it as a roller bearing. The total load is around 100lbs spread over four bearings located near the corners of a 3' X 5' rectangle

From the center of each bushing I'll need a max 1" to the steel it's riding on, I'll cut the bearing/bushing somewhere around 1" length

Will it be to weak?

PS: I can downsize the through-bolt (need less muscle anyway), and drill and sleeve the neoprene, that would also make it easier to washer the ends, a little grease

Maybe even a zerk (if feasible), but the through-bolt will also hold it together so I can grease occasionally

If you need bearings for any custom fab, these are the people.

It's made, they got it

Just happen to have a place 30 minutes away, ya gotta love living in the petrochem capital of the world

At least if you need bearings
