So I was hoping to track down some bearings for the grizzly g0490 jointer this weekend, but grizzly tech support is closed. It looks like they’re 42×20x12 bearings, but does anyone know if grizzly recommends anything specific?

Good luck! I would wait until Grizzly opens up Monday AM. That way you should get an exact match.

go to your local fastenal they have all bearings you need or any industrial supply company you can upgrade to a better bearing also that’s what I done on my tablesaw , my tablesaw size was 12mm x17mm x40mm, just look up the size and you should have no problem finding a bearing lot’s of places carry metric size bearings even autozone pepboys just about anywhere good luck I would definitely upgrade to a better bearing skf or something like that

if they are 42×12 x 20 you should have no problem picking up bearings local and they should be a better brand if you go ceramic you might pay 40 $ a set or higher ceramic is the way to go if you want to put the money in them but they are expensive that would be the best upgrade

I tracked down the size in the parts manual. It actually looks like two different sizes, 42×20x12 and 47×25x12…so odd. Looks like both fastenal and grainger are open mon-fri, I suppose I’ll give them a call then.

Those sound like common 6004 (42mm w/20mm bore, 12mm wide) and 6005 (47mm w/25mm bore, 12mm wide) bearings that you should have no problem finding. I would however pull the old ones first before buying the new ones.. just so you can make sure the bearings that are in there are the ones specified in the parts manual. I have seen on more than one occasion where the paperwork showed one thing and it turned out to be something different once opened up!

Cheers,

Hah, good timing brad. I just got up from the basement and taking the jointer apart. It’s definitely a 6004 bearing. I can’t find my little clip remover to verify the other.

Grizzly lists the generic bearing numbers they are BALL BEARING 6005-2RS, BALL BEARING 6004-2RS. You can order these from any of the online bearing distributors. I bought some when I changed to a helical head. I can’t remember right now who I used but they were less then 15 dollars with deliver.
