Back to walking
« on: June 15, 2021, 12:21:16 AM »
By about noon today I felt like the seat was holding the mill back, so I pulled it off and went back to walking. Then when I got home I took a closer look. 2 of the new bearings that I installed last week have already failed. The bearings were bad when I got it and the new bearings only lasted 2 1/2 days. I think I might have to beef it up a bit.

At least now you know that to get tough it has to be tough.  ;D

I have no idea what yours looks like so no suggestion from me.

When I get a break in the schedule, Iíll take some measurements and get ahold of a friend that works for motion industries. I should be able to track down a cam follower that will fit. If not, Iíll get serious and make em fit 😋
