I received a 50s/60s era 6” jointer recently. after rehabbing the body somewhat and getting the bed moving again, I made the mistake of breaking the pressfit bearings on the blade shaft. I don’t think I can get the big drum removed (I think it would have done something before this point if I could)...so I’m stuck with a busted jointer right now.
Do I figure out a way to replace pressfit bearings (which is what this post is really asking: how do you put on pressfit stuff without an arbor press) or chuck the machine?
