« Part 11: Cutterhead and column clean up Part 12 of Saving A Jet JWP-15CS From Dump series Part 13: Base, columns, lower table, upper table assembly »

Here are the 4 column rod bearings and one of the cutter head bearings. On the old bearings to the left, you can see the score that has distorted the bearing seals enough to cause me a concern to purchase new bearings on the right (link in previous blog post):
And so it comes time to assemble. I have no documentation other than the Jet parts list to go by. I’ll be using lithium grease just about everywhere metal touches metal. I know to use and lubricate with 90w oil for the infeed and outfeed roller bushing blocks. I can’t recall off top of my head what weight oil to use in the gear box, but it will come to me when the time is needed.

I used Nachi Quest bearings in my Unisaw’s arbor. They are good quality Japanese bearings with quality grease inside. They’ll last for years.

Have your say...
