A plummer block consists of a cast iron Block Base, gunmetal bearing bottom & top halves, a cast iron cap and two mild steel bolts. It is made in two halves to provide easy placing and removal of the shaft in and from bearing. The split bottom & top halves give advantage to overcome wear as these can be easily replaced. The bolt holes in the block base are made longer with semi-circular ends for adjusting the position of the bearing. A half sectional pictorial view of plummer block is shown in fig (7.19) and an exploded sectional view of plummer block is shown in fig (7.20), which shows the positioning and assembling of parts in plummer block.

Parts of plummer block are shown below. Fig (7.21) shows the sectional isometric view of cap while fig (7.22) shows orthographic views of cap. General dimensions of plummer block are taken to draw these figures. Fig (7.23) & Fig (7.24) shows the orthographic views of bearing top & bottom half respectively. The sectional front view and top views of block case is shown in fig (7.25). Assembling of all these parts results into plummer block which has been drawn in fig (7.26) and the sectional isometric view for the same is shown in fig (7.27).
