The trouble with old bearings is you won’t know they are in need of replacement till you take them off the jointer and spin them by hand. On a machine they might feel smooth to turn the cutterhead by hand. But off they might be crunchy. If they are bad they can completely destroy your machine in a few years of use by wallowing out the part they are attached to.
