ScottThanks again for all the guidance.The last question I have is: can someone tell me the actual size of the stock rollers? Someone mentioned that mine seem to be small.I will start figuring out how best to recreate the original style left-hand mount and get the supplies I'll need. In the meantime, maybe these flange rollers will offer a decent cut, or at least better (and safer for the machine) than what I have now.OK guys. I really appreciate all the help. It seems that it may be worth trying to slap a couple flange bearings on there - tweak it a bit, and see if that helps at all. It's a fairly inexpensive attempt, and is worth a shot, even if only for a temporary fix.Based on the photos, which were very helpful (thanks all!), the left-hand (if you are looking at the machine in horizontal position) mount is completely fabbed, and NOT in a great way. The right-hand mount, based on the photos, seems to be approximately stock, and should be workable I think.
Bearings are on their way from McMaster Carr. We will see if it provides a quick fix, while I design a better guide to replace the fabbed one that is on thereMessage 45 of 45 , Sep 9View SourceBearings are on their way from McMaster Carr.
