Rusty Atlas Power King 3201 8" Table Saw
I managed to get one of these given to me.
I have refurbished the unit and it has come up well but for the severe staining on the table post the rust removal. Needs a lick of paint still.
So I have washed and checked the spindle bearings and they are good. I now need to repack the housing with grease as the bearings have outer seals but are open on the inside. I know that over packing with grease can cause overheating when under load.
So once the individual bearings have been packed what percentage of the cavity should be filled with grease?
I am missing the fence, guard and miter slide. Is there a second hand market in the US that sells these components? Else will make the first two and buy the third and modify to suit.
