Preac Thickness Sander


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have been using a Preac thickness sander for many years. Recently I noticed the roller bearings getting quite loud when I operate the machine. I'm thinking they are worn out and need to be replaced. Since Preac is no longer in business, I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can find replacement bearings or a repair service that would fix the problem for me.

In building these tools Preac would have used standard industrial bearings.  Pop out one of the bearings, take it to your nearest bearing distributor and I bet that they can match it.  Here in Minnesota we have branches of a company named Bearings, Inc but industrial supply houses like Grainger Supply also carry bearings.
