Does anyone have the type/sizes of replacement spindle bearings for a Syil SX3?
I'm not looking forward to it but it's time to change them, she's done nearly a 1000hrs on the originals.
I'd really like to get everything in place before I strip her, time is £££money.
No offence Syilchina & thank you for the offer but I reckon she'd benefit from some very high quality ones, particularly in view of her working alot harder than I do. I just watch her.
Do you know what sizes I should be ordering???
I didn't open a SX3 lately but I guess the spindle should be the same as the X4+, top bearing is 6006 RS
The photo is not clear enough, but Im referring to this one:
I replaced my upper bearings with a single taper bearing. I was fed up with the noise and the quality of the upper bearings and decided to find a better way.
Here is a post to what I did with mine. Being that I have 2 taper bearings, I center the shaft by tightening the shaft nuts. It proved to be a very good idea and the shaft is now producing better cuts that I got before as well.
Runout of tools on SX3 and X3 owners.
