    Default Replace bearings on Tatry DW50 / DeWalt 1150 planer thicknesser.

    Does anyone know the procedure for replacing the cutter bearings on these machines, or better still have the instructions for doing it? I've been looking at mine (the one with the rusty thicknesser bed) with an engineer friend and we're having trouble working out the intended sequence for dismantling it.

    (Mine is the earlier version with the weak casting to mount the planer fence, and I have the user/parts manuals for both versions, but haven't been able to find anything online about stripping the machine to get at the bearings. I'm pretty sure that doing that will also make it possible to remove the thicknesser bed so I can deal with its rust.)

    Season's greetings,
    John

    Thanks for the reply. That thread got my hopes up when I found it while first searching, but it trails off sadly with posts from a couple of other people asking for advice which the OP hasn't responded to. In fact the OP, jordy94, doesn't seem to have been back to the forum since posting an update in April 2020, so presumably hasn't seen those posts and wouldn't see mine. I'll try a DM.

    Did you have any luck contacting Jordy? I see he was on the day we were discussing this.

    We're communicating via DM and I hope to get some tips.

    I'll try and remember to take pictures and notes as I dismantle mine so I can post back here.
