I doubt you will be able to replace the bearings on your Dremel for less than
the cost of
a new tool when you factor in your valuable time and fuel. However, I am also
will spend US$300 in time and money to accomplish almost as much good as tossing
tool and buying a new one for US$50. Just Because.
When in doubt, ask the Horse, because the problem may not be bearings:
Bring the bearings to your local bearing supplier to get them matched.
Be sure to mention that you will run them at 40,000 RPM. :)
I guess Dremel sells the armature and bearings as an assembly because pressing
place is done easier at the factory. 26 bucks for the assembly or thirty for a
and accessories on eBay. Hmmmm.
Good question. Last time I tried getting bearings, the local supply house
couldn't match them up- the sizes skip in the bearing catalog. Theyu must be
made-to-order. Dremel won't sell just the bearings- I had a rather lengthy
correspondence with some high mucky-muck at Dremel about that. They were
nice enough to send me a coupon for my next purchase.
