Live center repair report

Philip Duffy
>Couple weeks ago I posted the problem of my PM live center (looks like a Oneway and is not) that started screaming due to blown bearings. Took it to the local authorized repair center for Jet tools today in Norfolk, VA and, in 15 minutes, the mechanic had unscrewed the brass face plate, pulled out the trashed bearings and pressed two new sealed ball bearings onto the shaft. So simple and so easy! I was proud to pay the bill and walk out the door, at 1/4th the cost of a new live center! Anyone with my problem should find out the name and location of the Jet repair center in your area. - - -no affiliation, as you might already know. Philip
