DeWalt DW618 Bearing Question

800 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  JIMMIEM
I have to replace the MAGNET RING on my router. To install the new MAGNET RING the top Bearing has to be removed. I have removed the bearing and will replace it with a new bearing. The bearing is a 6001Z. I bought a new bearing at a local bearing shop. I was sold a 6001ZZ bearing. I realized this when I got home.
I've read about the different types of bearings but can't find anything definitive about whether it is/isn't an issue using a ZZ bearing instead of a Z bearing.
Would appreciate any info/advice on this.
Thank You

My first call would be to the bearing shop, to find out what the difference is between the 2 numbers.
