I have a small 9” Delta bandsaw (28-150) that was given to me. I was able to use it to make a few inaccurate cuts before realizing it needed a lot of TLC to be usable. (and after it kinked a brand new blade I got for it.) I found new tires available on amazon, and I’m trying to find how I can replace the Thrust Bearings. I know how to get the shaft out of the guide, but I can’t tell how to get the bearings off without doing damage. I’d really appreciate it if anyone can tell me how to get the tiny clip off of them?
That bearing is very small; 9/16” in diameter. I’d like to get this little one running to tide me over until I get more power run to my shop (aka garage), and buy a larger one. If you know a good place to buy new bearings that would be great as well. The guys at my local hardware stores look at me like I’m speaking Greek when I ask if they carry thrust bearings.
