    Hello fellow woodworkers. I'm in the process of replacing the bearings on my 177E, I've removed the lower large bearing, leaving me with the fan exposed, and everything needed to get access to the upper one, so I'm thinking all I need to do now is press the small end of the armature out of...

    Members might be interested in this little project I tackled recently. I was given an old Elu router that had seen better days. It was stored for quite some time in a cold damp place, allowing some corrosion to get a hold. When I got it, it couldn't be turned by hand and it couldn't be plunged...

    Hi! First post for me =) I just got a ELU OF97E for free 'cause it was broken but I only needed to change the motor housing and it was up and running :yes2: The top bearing was screaming though so it's passed its due date. Does anyone have any pictures/video of how to dis-assemble a Dewalt...

    I have a +/-30-day-old Bosch 1617EVS. Between jobs, the unit has been used at least three days a week since purchase on red and white oak. Also, I live in Houston without a garage, or workshop. Thus, my work has been outside, and in the humidity. Over the last week, as I power-down the unit...
  8. Router Bits - Types and Usage
    Hi Has anyone tried sourcing guide bearings from bearing factors? Where I live there isn't a tool place for miles, so getting single bearings means importing over the internet and by the time you've gone through the rigmarole of postage and import charges on top of what often seem quite high...
