I braze and braze-weld with silicon bronze filler, but I usually use O/A for heat instead of tig. Seems like I have more control that way, and it's easier to heat the surrounding material with gas...

I use ATF for air tool oil. Anyone had any problems doing this? I figure ATF has lots of detergents that may help keep things clean.

Called Powermatic and spoke to someone this a.m., who said there should be two wave washers, one under each bearing.

"So should I add one to the other side?"
"If there's room, yes, I would."

Thanks for your help, Digr.

I guess the question now is, do I put it back together the way I found it, or the way that Powermatic shows it in their drawing? Or does it not matter?

I have a table saw (Powermatic 64A) whose arbor bearings went. I took it apart and am ready to reassemble with new ball bearings but had a question.
