Default Introduction

I am a hobyist woodworker who enjois to build Furniture. I own a Porter Cable 7518 and after problems servicing bearings the first time
figured out how to service bearings on it. back then I was told I had to send it to the factory for servicing. Wich appeared too costly to me. What I did may not be safe but I have not had any problems because of it since then.
I ground 2 flats into The armature shaft next to where the small bearing is located the diameter of the shaft increases (has a step) there. This allows me to apply enough torque to loosen the collet nut.
I also own a Porter Cable 7310 I have used it together with a speed controller most of the time and run it at about 75% of its full speed hoping to increase bearing life that way. I wonder what quirks this router may have. Are there any difficulties replacing bearings?

Hello woodworkers
I have another question regarding my Porter Cable 7518 (speedmatic) . The outer race of the small bearing is held in place with bearing adhesive as I have replaced the bearings several times the adhesive tends to acumulate in the bore wich is made of what appears to be aluminum. is there a good way of removing the adhesive without distorting the bore?
