If LJ member Mr.Unix were to pipe in here, I’m sure he’d recommend replacing the bearings. After all, if you’ve got the machine in pieces anyway, why not? Bearings are cheap and essential and should one fail while the machine is running, it could cost you allot more in the long run.

In your case, considering that you really don’t know much about the history of the lathe, I’d agree with Mr. Unix.
