I have a main line tomorrow morning at 9:30. Should be home by 11 at the latest. I can definitely walk you through it! When I get home Iíll take a few pics and post them here or text... get a tub of bearing grease from the auto parts store.

I don't know what those cost you or how long they took to get but they should have a code on them you can use to order them as a generic bearing from a normal supplier instead of just spartan. Assuming they aren't a non industry standard size. I doubt they are special. You could also measure them with some calipers.



Generics could be cheaper/faster but will still perform just as well because roller bearings are one of those things that if they aren't a super common size they don't bother trying to save by making some super crappy.

@OpenSights set me up with the link for bearings on eBay, 10 of them for $16. They seem pretty solid

Very common size. The best ones for use with your machine have a mechanical seal.... these are often advertised as skateboard bearings. My last set of bearings lasted a little over two years... but I am rough on my machines. I know the breaking point and come close to it often.

I swapped out the bearings, it was pretty straight forward once I started tinkering on it. The auto feed is good and fixed. The old ones were pretty beat down.

I had a funny one today, a newer customer of mine calls me for a leak on an older natural gas 30 gallon water heater at a rental property.

Once onsite it was obvious that the water heater was long past repair and needed to be swapped out. I gave him a reasonable bid over the phone to change the heater today and he seemed to be cool with it, but wanted to check with the wife first.

He calls me back and says his mother in law (who has a ton of rental properties) Has a “guy” who will replace the water heater today for much less(about $150 over materials). I tell him “best of luck” and planned on blocking his number.

Two Hours later he calls and tells me the “guy”
Flakes and wants me to replace the water heater for our early agreed price. We complete the installation and I call to collect. Once the money is in my account I ask what happened to the “guy”.

The customer says the “guy”called back and say now he can’t make it for a week. My thought is that he’s a Home Depot hack and once he ran the numbers on his bid, he knew it’s wasn’t worth it.

*****n Hacks

I had a boss once that was so cheap I had zero bearings for six months! Actually made me more proficient. If you can figure out how to rebuild a toilet, you can figure out an auto feed.
