    Has anyone heard of the bearing/hot running problem with the PC7518's?...............

    I just read that there was a problem with the bearings running too hot but there was no elaboration. Has anyone heard of this?

    I finally started using mine yesterday and I noticed that it was heating up the PRL plate. I opened the cabinet door and hot air rushed out to meet me.

    Am I going to have trouble with this now? Runout problems? Bearings seizing?

    Gosh dang caca pooey!!!...........

    Mark,

    Where did you read that?

    What kind of routing were you doing when you noticed the hot air?

    I have four of the 7537's, D-handles. [No longer made]
    2 are in one of my dual tables for rail and stiles.
    They have always run warm. Plate gets fairly warm also.
    These are around 7 years old now, and the heat apparently does not affect anything.

    I first read about it from a post byKeith Outten in a thread that was asking about router recommendations. Apparently this is an issue with newer routers. I did a search after posting this thread last night and found a few references.

    PC is aware of this from what I can tell.

    Greg, I was running a straight bit and trimming some 1/8" thick edgebanding on cabinet shelves. Very light stuff.

    I'll definately call tomorrow morning and see what they have to say.
    Thanks, Mark.
