So far on my 14" Rockwell Delta Lathe, no special bearings.  Most are 202's, 203's and like.  Even if you have to drive it out by inner race, if it comes out damaged, should be easily replace with a standard bearing.  It's been too many years ago since I took apart the Delta Tool maker grinder dad had and scrapped it.  Wished now that I kept it.

Good to know. Thanks Ken, it will make me feel better knowing if I wind up pushing it out by the center race. I just don't want to brinnel the balls if possible.

Ok, so I milled an oil groove into the cross slide where it had been worn away.
Now measuring the height different between the 2 sides and it is 10 thou.
I don't have a long enough travel on my table to do this in one pass, and am afraid if I do take it down, it will not be level if I do 2 passes. I don't scrape. And the surface grinder won't help because it will not reach this area to correct.


Anyone have an idea how to take the surface farthest from the lens down 10 thou w/o enough travel?
