If you decided to upgrade it from the unfortunate installation of the pillow block bearings and especially if you put in a Byrd cutter head I believe from what I can see that one could open out the old babbit housing to accommodate ball or needle bearings, or to accommodate separate units which have those bearings fitted. And I have seen damaged table ends over the cutters improved from original by rebating a slotted brass piece into the end. Would need the right kind of metal head…..
