I was all set to do some more work with my ShapeOko tonight, but when I turned on the Rigid trim router it made a terrible noise…
Sounded like a bad bearing. So I had to take it apart.
I found a new bearing online. In multiple places, for a cost of anywhere from $2 to $7. But with shipping I ended up paying about $10.
Unfortunately I managed to mangle the fan a bit while I was pulling off the old bearing, so I’ll have to try and repair that now also.
Guess I need to delay my projects now. Pewp.
