@Dusty – I used a utility knife blade to pry the seals out of the bearings (using the dull side) and then packed them with a standard high temp bearing grease (non-moly). I added some photos and a more detailed description to my blog, let me know if you want any clarification. Looks like you have a similar machine? http://davidwahl.org/2012/11/new-to-me-powermatic-60-8-inch-jointer/

@Jim & Todd – Hard to explain how excited I am about this tool, but I think you guys understand :)
