I picked up my lathe for $35.00 and used it for a few months then the bearing got real noisey. It had been in three floods so I knew it wouldn’t take long. I tored into it and found both bearings shot. got the bearing out and went to the local auto parts store and they had two in stock, what luck. Only cost me $12.00 for both bearings. I seen them on web sites for up to $40 a piece. Now there not BCA but at that price who cares. It was an easy job to do, took me a few hours to do but mind was really rusted on the shaft. An allen wrench , a hammer, an old socket for pressing the new bearing on was all it took.

I’m not sure if they stock them but I’m sure they can get them over night. If I think of it I will put the bearing numbers on here. It’s the same number thats on the org. bearings.

Hey, Paplou I realize this thread is old but do you have those bearing ID numbers by any chance?
