I have inconvenienced a lot of electrons with JPG over the last couple of days hashing out the bearing(s) and cam bearing maint. The machine hadn't run for about 20 years, but was in amazing shape. I removed where necessary and just oiled where practical all of the bearings especially the button bearing for the infamous cam. Had to put some belt dressing on the v belt and such and clean up some things, but all in all, I don't think this one is going to get an "overhaul" like the 10ERs did. It just runs to well and after aligning the fence and table, she works like a shopsmith!
Couldn't be happier.
