    Default Brown & Sharpe 618 Spindle Bearings Question

    Hi There

    I've a B&S 618 Micromaster surface grinder over here in the UK.

    The spindle bearings are getting noisy and need replacing, it's a great machine and gets a lot of use. I was wondering if anyone here knows either the bearing sizes/type or a bearing manufacturer name and part number for replacement bearings.

    The machine is fitted with a two bearing Orflex type spindle.

    Thanks in advance
    John

    All sorted now!
    It turns out the bearings are a matched pair of very high quality metric (62mmx35mmx14mm) angular contact bearings. I was quoted $750 +$250 for shipping for a pair from the USA and managed to find a set of German made FAG bearings here in the UK for £149.34 + £7.50 for shipping, I've just fitted them and they seem perfect
