A project that I have been putting off for a long time is replacing the arbor bearings in my table saw (Ridgid r4511). I didn’t realize how bad of shape they were in. The bearings were so warn that they were adding a lot of resistance to the motor which made cutting through thicker stock more difficult. The replacement took me 3.5 hours to complete which includes time to recalibrate and tune up the saw.
To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material
