I had a motor in my air conditioning compressor unit that started squealing one Saturday afternoon when we were expecting company. I quickly took the top off (and motor) then eased the seals open. I packed them with wheel bearing grease and put it back into service. It was fine. About a month later, at my convience, I replaced the motor. I think bearings can be gently repacked and add life to them. Did I trust the work…..doesn’t sound like it does it? At the cost of bearings and the availability of bearings I would never do that but my situation was when everyone was home with their feet propped up and I was expecting a house full of people in a short time. If it were my jointer I would have new bearings in it.
