Some more updates...did a lot of painting recently. Got the whole bed and supports/pan painted. Still waiting for a few more parts to be painted before putting the base back together.

Pieces came out pretty good. Only a few small drips here and there.

More painted parts tonight. Managed to get the bearings out of the underdrive assembly. Tomorrow I will attempt to turn down the shaft to accept new more obtainable stock bearings (52mm OD x 1 inch ID instead of 52mm x 26mm). They were $9 each compared to the other 88026 bearings which are no longer available from my local supplier.

I ordered these to go in the transmission on my Hendey... this may save you a few dollars...

Hmm, can't see your attachment, it says "you do not have permission to view this page or perform this action." I am guessing its an eBay listing for the 88026 bearing. When I take into account the added fees with currency exchange and shipping to Canada, the price will easily double or even triple depending on how much it costs...that is the major problem here. Also time in getting the item from the USA is a factor.

I hate the non standard bearings anyway, so I will just change them out to the standard ones I bought.

Hmmm... IDK why it won't show the attachment... yes, it was an ebay ad for the bearings.

You are most likely right... if you can get the bearings local for $9, it wouldn't be worth it, anyway... I didn't notice you are in Canada.

Some big progress today. Got all the big parts of the underdrive finally assembled after messing around with the bearings, and got the body back together.

Decided to completely strip the tailstock back down again. Hated how the brushed paint looked on it that also got damaged from handling. Painted headstock, tailstock, and various other misc parts tonight.

That thing is looked spectacular!

Thanks a lot!

Here's some more pictures of the freshly painted headstock and tailstock, also partially assembled tailstock.
