Teardown, checked bearings clearence.
Do my eyes deceive me or is the low speed shaft scored? I haven't seen many of these old machines. What is the spec for the bearings?
The key to happiness is lower expectations.
Don't pick the fly crap out of the pepper.
The bearings are not removed from the gears in the picture, the bearing clearence is within tolerance, the shiny center is created by how the bearings have friction against the other half of the gears cover.
thats a cute little sucker!!!!!!
