have had a good time lately, took delivery of what seems to be quite an early Lister sawbench last Saturday morning, then on Sunday, I went to the rally at Wrotham (pronounced route-ham) and found one length of flat belting, which just happened to be the right width/length. Haggled that down to £3 even though it looked hardly used. No connectors though!
I drilled a line of holes in each side and used railway fence wire to lace it up! (as per sem's belts and belt drive book) seems to work well.
I think the bearings on the sawbench have been replaced at some time and the shaft under one of them has been very slightly reduced in size due no doubt to slipping, what should I do to prevent this happening again? Loctite came to mind but any other ideas are welcomed.
The bearings have RA10 stamped on them, is this the type or size, or just a part number?
The sawbench is a Lister spec LN s/n 170
thanks in advance

P.S. just up the road from Wrotham is a place spelled Trottiscliffe, this is pronounced as trossley! Work that one out!
