Hi Scott I’m a relatively new user of the shopsmith and have been watching your utub video, which I find very informative. I upgraded to the power pro about 2 years ago. I did the DIY kit. In that kit came a new idler shaft with pulley and bearings. Well the inner bearing next to the pulley has gone bad. I’m in the middle of making Wooden Easter baskets for my daughters. My question is can the bearings and pulley be pressed off and replaced or do I need a whole new assembly?ReplyDelete
Scott here. Yes, you should be able to press them off. The biggest challenge will likely be finding the bearing, but once you do I would buy a couple. Good luck and let me know what you learn.Delete
