Seem like a simple problem just take your calipers over to the saw and measure the existing bearing. Or order a few of each they are not expensive.

I threw the cheap old bearings away. Didn't bother to measure them because they did not appear to be correctly sized anyhow, plus, I knew people online could help.

Dake does not care to share the sizes with you, but the reason for this is because the J saw uses a 3/4" blade, and the JH saw uses a 1" blade. Therefore I ASSUME that the smaller 3/4" blade J saw calls for the LARGER 30mm OD bearing (6200zz) and the JH saw using the larger 1" blade, calls for a 6000zz bearing with 26mm OD, but I do not know for sure if this is correct or not? Trying to clear this up.
I wuz going to point that out but thought the 4 mm difference might be obvious. Not 1/4", but not too far off. That said, at some point they might have changed dimensions on the mounting points so that one bearing size fits all, or something like that.

I wish I had a big Johnson so I could measure it for you. But I have a smaller Johnson model B and they have small balls in the bearings.

I would go with Jennifer's info in the link provided.
