FWIW – Pretty sure that Bridgewood sold the same Geetech (Chiu Ting Machinery Co., Taiwan) produced OEM branded 8” jointer that many other folks sold. Will likely find that the Jet JJ-8CS and Grizzly Taiwan produced 8” jointer’s from same time frame are identical; and you can use their manuals and parts listings. Geetech tools were also sold under the Sunhill brand in USA. There is an ebay seller ‘thetoolsupermarket’ who sold Accura branded jointer tools that were Geetech produced.

Good luck on finding bearing numbers in parts list. Most times I find all they list is OEM PN, and seldom list the complete PN for shield/seal type (I recommended double shielded type). When I redid mine, the cutter head bearings are standard 6200 series, just pull them and most any local bearing shop should have a set on the shelf. PS – If all you want is bearing numbers, might get lucky and find a shellix conversion site that will list the bearings used on cutter head. :)

Best Luck.
