Grizzly mini lathe head stock bearings
Had this posted in the Power tool section and got no responses so thought I would give it a shot here.
Found a Grizzly Model G9247 wood lathe on Clist for $45. Owner says it works fine but the headstock is growling, had a new spindle put in a few years ago. Sounds to me like it needs new bearings but if anybody has experience with this lathe that indicates otherwise please let me know. They should have put bearings in it when they replaced the shaft IMO.
Have already bought it, but instead of burning $60 worth of gas, he will be traveling through my area in a couple weeks and bring it with him. Comes with everything needed to turn pens.
