The sip website says discontinued, any idea where i can get a replacement, as no budget for new lathe atm

The bearings should have a Code marked on them which tells any supplier what is required.

May be difficult to find a bearing supplier open but you should be able to get them on line.

Not sure how many bearings there are, probably 2, but they are some times different sizes so check them all.

Removing bearings is easy peasy. Youre throwing them away, so whatever works for you, from dedicated bearing pullers to a disc cutter or hammer and cold chisel, as long as you dont break the housing or shaft.
:shock: :shock: :lol:

All standard roller bearings are sold on measurements, outside, inside and thickness in mm. But you can get shielded (rubber washer over the ball race to protect from dust) or unsheilded.
Putting the new ones on can be very tricky and requires care depending what type of bearing it is.
