I got to the bottom of my CNC mill trouble...
I need an extremely odd size bearing seal. No way will anyone halfway close to me has this. What's you favorite online specialty bearing place?
The particulars. bearing seal OD 2.687" (caliper on bent seal - may be off a bit) rotating shaft size 1.567" (mike)
seal height (caliper on bent again) 0.375"
Numbers on seal ? 26915638 R4 (can't make out first character)
My problem, the mill leaks oil like crazy and slings all over the shop. Somebody has been there before me and put some sort of sealant on the seal's OD to the AL housing. I think this is where the leak is, the rubber looks great. Anyone ever used a sealant on a seal?
