We cannot seem to find thrust bearings for the blade guide system for our bandsaw. It’s a 10” Rockwell/Beaver – Model #: 28115
It’s for our Seniors complex hobby shop, & we cannot afford a new bandsaw. We miss this machine a lot.
Please help us obtain these parts. We live in Calgary, AB. Canada

Thanks…............Katzon (Jeff)

Can you take measurements of the ones that are there or are they missing entirely? If you have them, measure (in mm, not inches) the O.D., bore and width. The thrust bearings do not have to be identical, just close enough.

Cheers,
Brad

You don’t need to have a manufacturer’s brand name bearing. Most bearings come in a wide variety of universal sizes so just take the old bearing to a place that sells bearings or go on the internet to find a new one.

Lynn is great BUT don’t call her up asking what bearings you need for a machine. She has ask nicely that all the OWWM and hobbyists have their ducks in a row when they call. If there are no numbers anywhere on the bearing then do as Brad said and you should be able to find the bearing without an issue.

Ditto. You’re better off getting them elsewhere if your just gonna buy from them once.

Typical thrust bearings are 6200 light duty on a 14” saw. Don’t see why they would be a different size. Most bearings are metric.
