  • The table Shaft.....FROM HELL!!!

    So I thought I would post my little adventure I had tonight as I know I'm not the first one this has happened to.

    Got around to changing a bad table shaft on this one lane, ok no big deal, done it many times before, take awhile but should go pretty smoothly....NO!

    This one in particular had both bearings on it. Ok so I get everything else off and go to unlock the collar on the bearing next to the gearbox and it is pretty much welded on the shaft, and anybody that has experience with this knows you can't get the shaft out of the machine unless this bearing comes off and it ain't easy to do it either..wtf? On top of that, the TA cams are seized on there too! So now I have very little room to move this thing around. So an extra hour and a pound of metal shavings later the shaft came out...in two pieces..... that's right bitch- you can't win!

    After 4-5 hours or whatever it was, everything is right again without the bearing next to the gearbox and the shaft plate instead- man those things are evil!

    Now I just have to go back and raise the f/e a little and do spotting adjustments, after this mess that seems like cake.

    I knew I put this off for a reason...lol

                  Saws all with metal blade, Cut shaft in half and do all the work on the bench. Been doing this for years, and it dont take but a couple minutes or less to cut a shaft. Anti-seize the heck out of the new shaft.

                    I like to grease the hell out of the splines, doesn't seem to dry up like antiseize.

                      There's good anti-seize and not so good anti-seize! Make sure you are working with a product that contains nickel, aluminum & graphite. We recently changed our specification on this product and offer part number 715012401.

                        I like to use a good high temperature waterproof bearing grease... you pull a gearbox and the grease looks like it did when you applied it. The boxes just slide off!!

                          I must add I've never had to cut a shaft off.... That shouldnt be necessary if grease/anti-seize is applied to splines, and locking collars actually LOCK onto the shaft. The minute the shaft starts to spin inside those bearing cases, that thing aint gonna budge without wrecking it with a hammer.
