Turning Archive 2004
>Good morning Mike,
Last night my lathe developed a thump thomp tippy tippy thomp and now the only surface I get is ropping, no matter what tool is used, (roughing more boxes), so I disconnected the belt, turned the lathe on and the motor runs smooth, so I reckon is the spindle bearings.
I recall you replacing the bearings in your machine early this year and tried doing a search, but it only gives me your post back to august.
Where did you get the replacement bearings?
