Drill Press Center Pulley Bearing Replacement – I posted a video on youtube.com showing how I did this on a 30 year old Orbit Drill Press. I imagine it is the same on other drills with a center pulley. It can be done without special tools and the bearings can usually be bought on amazon.com for cheap. I did not see information online on how to do this, so I did it and made a video in the process.
I bought a 30 year old Orbit Drill Press for a good price, but being so old it has some issues, like the bearings wearing out. The center pulley bearings were making noise. I do have a link in the video description to a great video on changing spindle bearings. I will do this next.
