I’m replacing the armature bearing on a Bosch 4000. Is this a safe way to press on the bearing?
I plan on:
My question is, is the shaft of the armature all one piece? I’m I going to mess anything up by compressing the whole shaft vs trying to grip somewhere else on the body of the armature and pressing the bearing?
I picked up the saw and the motor was in a cardboard box :P
After some poking around I saw that the bearing was toast, so much so that it had melted the area of the motor housing that the bearing rests in. The rest of the armature didn’t look burnt or anything. The brushes looked ok
I ordered a new motor housing ($25) and bearing ($3) parts get here today so wish me luck! I might’ve gotten a great (2nd) saw for a song!
