My 13 inch south bend stopped yesterday. After taking apart the headstock I found that a thrust bearing had come apart and was loosing ball bearings.
I have done some research and find that the thrust bearing is not a standard size and Grizzley does not have the one I need.
Does anyone have any ideas of where to find one? I have looked at the past postings but the only ones that deal with thrust bearings are smaller lathes and the bearings are different size.
the bearings need to fit on a 1 11/16" shaft and are only 1/2" thick
I think I better take out the camera and start taking a few pictures.
