I am in the process of refurbishing a 1950 Delta-Rockwell drill press.It has an auxiliary speed reducer that has a very weird ball bearing to hold the step pulley. If I could even find a replacement I don't even want to know what it would cost. It would cost more than the machine is worth. They wanted $50 to $60 for the motor bearings which I am replacing with cheaper ones and sone machined spacers.
It is a sealed bearing. I have cleaned out all the old hardened grease after removing the shields. As it is in a semi-protected area and as I have no way of replacing the shields, what type of grease should I repack it with?: Wheel bearing grease, molly, or?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
