3HP Motor Tear-Down Clean-up and Bearing Replacement #1: 3HP Motor Tear-Down, Clean-up and Bearing-Replacement

01-25-2017 08:27 AM by RichmanNot | 7 comments »

Well I decided it was the day to get after the motor of my recently purchased “barn-find” Powermatic 66. I ordered new bearings for the motor from Accurate Bearing and they came within a few days of placing the order by email using one of the PDF Order Blanks I found on OWWM. My 3HP motor is a MARATHON Electric, it is 230v Single Phase. The Bearings for the motor were listed on the motor tag (White Sticker on the motor housing). Having the bearing information before hand sav...

tragedies #4: Jimi_C nails it - my planer suffered a blown bearing

11-16-2009 09:06 PM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

In my last post, I mentioned my planer seizing up entirely. I couldn’t move the belts, and I couldn’t spin the knife wheel. I also talked about how insanely built the Craftsman 13” is, and I still stand behind that. I think taking apart my Toyota pickup’s engine might be less involved.
