With linear bearings, could they be used to join one rod with another to form a cross-junction and rotate with around a 0.3N-mm torque? Suppose the rods are fairly thin, eg, 5mm in diameter. That is, could linear bearings bear a radial load? Would the bearings deform?
UPDATE Here's a diagram
Suppose the blue rod is attached to a gear driven by a motor. The blue rod itself is also attached to the bearing's housing. The blue essentially rotates and drives the black, exerting force/stress on the bearing. The idea is to mount a slidable camera on the black which can be rotated by the green gear.
