    Rockwell contractor saw bearing

    How much work is involved in replacing the trunnion bearing on an older Rockwell contractor saw? It does look like some heavy lifting is involved. "Oh, my aching back!

    Jim,
    I did the arbor bearings on my Rockwell/Delta unit (34-400 series). It isn't fun, but can be a one man job. I pulled the motor with the plate and the extension wings. I unbolted the cabinet from the stand. Then I was able to turn the cabinet over on the stand by myself. Once on it's back it was easy to work on.

    Hope that helps,
    Wes

    I used the exact same procedure on a late 50's model Craftsman Contr. saw.
