Remove the four screws (#75 in the manual) securing
the motor mount to the top of the head. You will now
be able to remove the motor and mount to see if any of
the gears are missing teeth. If they are, just get new
ones from Grizzly or from Chris at

To remove the spindle, remove the spanner nut at the
top of the spindle. Remove the three attachment screws
(part number 121) which secure the bearing cover (part
number 122) on the bottom of the head. The spindle can
now be pressed out with an arbor press.
To remove the head, undo the counterweight mechanism.
Remove the rack attachment screws (part number 47) and
slide the entire head off the top of the column. Now
you can access the 4 screws (part number60) which hold
the two head castings together. This will make the
front portion of the head accessable and portable in
case you need to take it to a machine shop to have the
spindle pressed out.
It is possible using a piece of threaded rod with nuts
and some large sockets to remove the spindle by
yourself but if you are unfamiliar with this
procedure, you run a risk of damaging the head
