    Like Rons, I just replaced the motor bearings. They are cheap enough and I'm not sure I'd be willing to pop for the robotic arm to get it out the next time. Enjoy!

    The headstock bearings are lubricated with grease "for life". Getting it apart to re-grease then is no simple matter and I would recommend looking over the posts about replacing HLV-H headstock...

    Thatís correct! Remove the long Allen head cap screw from the back and it comes apart, including three springs and some bearing balls. They are easy to clean and device.

    I also have the impression that those two spindles use different size collets.

    I had a copy of that book, but sold it a few months ago. Do you have the pattern forming attachment?
