Vintage Craftsman bench saw model 103-***x 1


My first here goes

I’m in the middle of a restore on this vintage bench saw,everything apart
Wondering if the bearings should be replaced…’s one of those “might as well”
Not sure how to go about it,just a matter of knocking it out from the pulley
Side?.....I was using a wood block on it ,but dam it don’t want to budge,I don’t
want to break the housing.The bearing seems nice and tight no looseness…....?

You could take it to a shop where they do bearing work. I had to replace the bearings on my table saw and couldn't get them off myself. Bearing shop replaced them for me $40 for part and labor.

after banging on them, you should take it to a shop and have them replaced. when you bang on the axle the balls put small dents in the races (brinelling) and you've got real good odds they'll fail rather quickly when put back in use.

a shop will have the proper tools and knowledge to remove and replace without damaging the new bearings.
