Taking out a gritty spindle that was hard to get out and found this.

Should I scrap it or am I ok?

Is that a reamer? Did a previous owner try to open up the spindle, and if so, how much did he take out? That should be the determining factor Re: scrap/use.

Everything is there but the cups and bearings need to be replaced.

I don't understand what I'm looking at? IS that a reamer stuck in the bore? Are we looking at possible wear on the spindle? If so, I can't see it.

It appears to be a reamer sticking out of the BACK of the spindle, which means the reamer would be small enough not to have changed the 3mt taper very much at all. The taper isn't going to be changed by a reamer that can pass through the length of the spindle.


My questions is how hard is it stuck in there, and did it do damage to the bearing surface at the smaller bearing location, if it is stuck very hard.

Clausing does have new spindles in stock, I just bought one. Around $245

The issue is the scoring on the back bearing journal. The thing sticking out the back us just an epoxy handle to prevent damage.
