Topic tags/keywords: jet 6” jointer question

I am told I have to replace the bearings. Do any of you have recommendations on where to purchase the bearings? I have never replace the bearings before, is it something I can readily find on YouTube has a show how? If I were to replace the bearings and have a fully operable machine, what is your opinion on how much I would be able to sell it for? I am thinking about getting a new machine. Thanks

You can find bearings at a bearing supply shop, and they will be much less expensive than from Jet.
Not familiar with the exact install for a Jet, but most are pretty straight forward. Might need a bearing puller.
Do you have access to a machine shop in your area?

Hi Bill

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I’m not sure if I have access to a machine shop but I can make some phone calls. Are you thinking I might be able to get the bearings at a machine shop?

You can get bearings on amazon or ebay also.

price will depend on a couple factors, condition and location.

A bearing supply house is your least expensive source. The machine shop would be for installation shuld you have any probs.

I got mine from McMaster Carr, cheaper price and better quality bearings. The ones I got from e-replacement parts were junk.

Thank you everyone appreciate the feedback. Any idea if there is a video on YouTube anywhere showing how to do this and also anybody have an idea as to what the value of the unit might be once I make the repair?

This is a kJ-6cs. Anyone know if you typically Just have to replace the bearings or do you normally have to buy the bearing housings as well they’re two separate pieces

I have basically the same exact jointer—mine is the JJ-6CSDX—but have never had to replace the bearings. I would say inspect the housings for any sort of wear or damage before making a decsion. It looks like they cost about $17 each—so if you do need to replace them it won’t be too bad.

Have your say...
