For reasons I won’t go into I had let my WW equipment sit for more than 12 years. I am getting back into it now, and I am currently rejuvenating my bandsaw. I have replaced the tires, checked the wheel bearings, replaced the blades (they all had more corrosion than I wanted to deal with on them) and the last thing I need to do is replace the bearings on my ball-bearing guides. They just don’t spin as fluidly as Id like.
So I bought a new set of bearings – quite cheap – I guess this is a very common bearing. So my question, never having done this, is how to get the bearings swapped out. What is the easiest way to remove the old and then press in the new bearings? Anyone have any suggestions?
I really appreciate any help you may be able to throw my way. Thanks in advance
