Stick486 which one do you have???
if the ring is concave/convex it's been torqued...

Note:
metric and SAE rings can be very close in OD/ID but are different thicknesses...
to thin and not a solid fit doesn't make it...

The original E Clip seems to be concave instead of perfectly flat. I bought a replacement from a hardware store which is flat and seems to be a whisker thinner than the original. The picture on the Sears parts sites looks like it might be concave. Does this make sense? Or did I distort it? If it is concave does it matter which direction the concave side faces when it's installed?

Curious as to why an E Clip is used instead of an external retaining ring. Any thoughts?
Probably 30 cents cheaper,

I'm with you 100% on having the right tool(s) for whatever job you are doing.
One tricky part of reinstalling the arbor housing is the E Clip that secures it. I saw that there is a special tool for it but I only see it on-line. I did see a you-tube where a pair of needle nose pliers was used to press the e clip on.

I dropped it off yesterday. Got it back this afternoon. Seems smooth. Just need to reinstall it in the table and take it for a spin.
$40 to pull and press 2 bearings.
Thank You again for suggesting that I have it done by a pro.
