« Part 10: Removed bearings, disassembled cutter head Part 11 of Saving A Jet JWP-15CS From Dump series Part 12: all 5 bearings arrived today. Disassembly done. Now, assembly begins! »

Disassembled the cutterhead and the 4 columns this week. Grrr… still waiting for the 4 column rod bearings to arrive (15th-20th), which is actually AOK because that is when the 3×15” knives should be ready for pickup. Every piece was cooked for 24hours via electrolysis. Perfect timing because I am getting a little wary of rust and disassembling stuff. I had no idea the amount of rust THROUGHOUT this machine. Wow. It’s near time to assemble and move on.

Old cutterhead and columns:
