The other day I went to go take apart my 15” Makita planer in order to send off the rollers to be recovered. Lo and behold, the end of one of the shafts was chewed up by wearing through the plain bearing in which it rotated. DOH! It’s just not gonna work. SO…..

I was hoping someone out there might have an extra roller shaft, or better yet, a set of complete rollers. Thanks all!

I had one of those years ago with the same problem. Don’t have the parts anymore. I didn’t undertake a repair of it. By then I had a bigger planer. Have you tried the local machine shop to see if they can build it up and turn it for you?

I just had a drum/roller type thing recovered by an outfit in New York a few weeks ago. Reasonable price and great serviice.

Thanks all. I have a number of sources for replacement parts, but I was trying to avoid paying that hefty of a price. I have been thinking about locating a machine shop to do the work, but I am so busy I was hoping I could get lucky and find someone with extras so I didn’t have to.
