@ John = Bearings can be purchased from your local JET service center and did not require a press. I just took some hardwood scrap and used a dead blow mallet to drive them on using the cast housings as a full surface area support so that no damage would incur. Just a touch of lubricant and they seated perfectly.

@ Jeff = The lock mechanism no longer functions since the Byrd head comes with a rounded end. I simply left it off. I figure if I kill the machine I will just pull the Byrd head out and put it in a new one, or fix/replace any broken parts. I consider the Byrd head to be a lifetime purchase at this point. I will never consider going back.

@ Joe = If you pay me paypal they take 3%, then shipping always seems to be more than I expect. So I will respectfully say I am not ready to lower the price yet. $80 Shipped for the three sets of knives is a good deal for both of us I think.
