  • need a how to...

    Bearings in table supports (at the end of the torque tube weldment) need to come out. What all do I have to disconnect here or can I just prop table on something and remove the pins from the bearings?

    Re: need a how to...

    It goes a lot smoother if you set the table on something (half a roller body, a bucket, etc.) and take one table leg off at a time. Take it to a bench so you can get to the blasted snap rings and clean it up at your leisure without trying to do everything all contorted in the machine. Those suckers get awfully loud when they need to come out, dont they? Screeeeeech. Have fun

        Leave couterbalance springs and spot/respot rods on. Just make some marks on the table around the support you take off, so you'll know exactly where to put it back on. Only do one side at a time. When you remove the support the table torque tube will rise a bit and the table itself will be on an angle, so make sure anything you put under the table will not topple over.

          The easiest way to do it is just take the table down to the pindeck and do the work there.

            <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">..yeah, but getting those snaprings off and cleaning the leg is a sumbitch if youre IN the pinsetter.... just my opinion though

              personally I would take off counter balance springs and spot/respot springs.

                  Monkey...I guess I was too vague. When I said, do the work on the pindeck, I meant to remove the support while table assembly was physically on the pindeck so nothing that may have been put under the table to hold it up ( for whatever reason ) could fall over and thus letting the table fall some distance. Then take the support to your work area and repair there. I've done quite a few of these and really don't see any reason why it's needed to remove CB springs and/or spot/respot rods. To take the pressure off the table assembly, when taking the table to the pindeck, don't let the spotting latch (claw) engage and grab the spotting arm.

                    In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. I dont know what that means. I wasnt saying to take off the CB springs or rods. I think , in fact, we're in total agreement on how to do these. Boy they sure sound good after they are replaced.

                      Ya know, in 18 years i have never had one of these bearings go bad. The race only turns about a 1/4 turn at such a slow speed.

                            Use a box of pins. If you are talking about the pillow block, mark or scribe some how as to know where it is to go back real close to where it was.

                              Appreciate the clarity all. My new boss was complaining to me about the noise the machines were making, so I went looking for squeaks--just discovered the bearings lol. Anyways when I got to looking at it, thought it might be more complicated than it seemed and didnt want to find out the hard way. After hitting everything metal with lube gun machines are still squeaking pretty loud. Aside from those bearings, anyone know of likely places to try that aren't obvious?
