Quote:Nice looking job. Getting the housing centered and held in place had to be a bit of a chore. You obviously have a relatively large mill to do this. I will be interested to see how it works out. My only concern would be if you did not get the front and rear bearing well aligned to each other, what affect that might have. Overall, it will have to be an improvement to the cheap thust bearing.
