Well I have been in and out of the forum, but mostly out, a lot of personal things have taken up our lives here for the summer and fall. I recently picked up an old Rockwell shaper, a 43-120. It has a 1hp motor, and it squealed like a stuck pig. So I anxiously disassembled the motor and the drive shaft to replace the bearings. I am happy to report that the whole process went smoothly and everything disassembled and reassembled very easily, and it now purrs like new and will soon be in service as I just ordered a set of cutters from toolstoday.com

If you cannot stand behind our troops, (and I understand, no judgement here), then please stand in front of them, remember, they're willing to stand in front of you!
