    I'll need to look them up. Just to be sure I don't misquote. And your right. I do 12 hour carves weekly. At least one or so. I have one machine that is all it does. Then another just for the short...

    Bought them on ebay. That way I got a little more bang for my buck. I'll try to find the item numbers.

    The VV bearings have worked great for me. The only thing I would note is as we tested the different bearings I did have a couple tolerance rings go. I believe from taking bearings in and out so much....

    I will say this...it goes on with ease. And does work like a rock chuck. It's just loud. It sings just about as loud as the original qc.

    I have had a bearing go. On the side that connects to the flex. Go might be a harsh word. It still spun cleanly. Just tight.

    Very busy for sure. It looks pretty wore down to me. And the bearing has a bit of play. But the rest of it looked good. If memory serves this was a rebuild from cw. So it lasted a couple years. And...

    I assume that was just a pattern carve set deep enough to pierce thru the cork?

    A problem I just had on my oldest carver, one of the upper roller bearings was frozen. Had to remove the truck and give it some wd40. Good as new.

    We're you carving or cutting? My flexshafts are always smooth but when I cut they get jittery. A dull bit will transmit some vibration as well. And what kind of lube are you using?
