Re: Bearing size ?
- Peter and James
My first WAG about the problem was off.:>( I looked at it closely
today and had gathered the tools too disassemble the lathe. I took
some of the belts off and was starting to take it apart when I
realized that I had another problem that I did not know about. One of
the pulleys had slipped and was rubbing against the block. When I
finally got it to move back, everything started working right. I
adjusted the belts and test ran the lathe. It sounded great, just
hummed quietly. It made me sigh with relief! :>)
I guess I don't have to replace the bearings yet. I will probably run
the lathe a lot over the weekend to make sure everything is right.
Thanks for the help.
