Re: Gear box bearings HELP!
- I went ahead and just got a new one. No hassle at all from harbor freight. The new one seems much better quality and maybe from a more recent production? The paint is a lot better quality, table for vertical cutting is twice as thick and super sturdy, motor feels smoother and stronger. Lets hope this one doesn't give out on me. Thanks for the info and tips!

> Well I bought the harbor freight 4x6 bandsaw about a month ago, been running it pretty hard. Today while making cuts the gear box started making noise, kept running it for about 5 minutes then I felt the gear box and it was really hot to the touch. Now it won't turn on. Feels like the bearings are shot, can't even turn the Pullys with my hands. My question is does anyone know an online supplier where I can pick up some replacement bearings? I'm not going to try harbor freight. Any help is appreciated thanks!
