what I found so far...
« on: September 19, 2015, 06:04:08 PM »
What started this 7.5 st
After unloading I noticed a tiny "knock" when turning
by hand. Not terrible by any means but it was there.
It spun good but a barley noticeable knock.

After bolting up and loading it with 2 space heaters
, one on each leg, I noticed the imbalance growl.

I have it apart now. The front bearing, sealed but with
the inside cover off and rolling around the shaft. It feels
OK but I will replace it. Back bearing seems fine.
The knock you ask ?  One of the wound bibbins is a ltttle
loose on its mount...

Glad you found the source of the noise, Gary!
