I’ve stratet to build my own jig for brazing quills for bicycles. I’m close to finished and so far all material used are scrap material I got as a bonus when buying a couple of steel benches for my and a friends workshops.
Here I’m rotating a rotary table by hand when milling in aluminium.
You can hear there is a little rattle in the noise and it comes from the cogs when using the planetary gear to decrease the motors rpm from 2910/1470 rpm to here approximately 775 rpm (slowest speed is 390 rpm). The carbide insert is a little dull as you can hear from the sound when cutting, and therefore the cut depth is only 0.2mm.
If you want just to replace the bearings you do not need to open up the electrical switch. If you need to open up the the electrical switch make sure all cables go free from the rotor when you put it together again. Also make sure the internal cables do not push to hard on the motors copper windings.
The rotor looks really nice
Here are some pictures from my UM 400 motor rebuild. Both the berings in the motor and in the planetary gear needed to be replaced. The bearings in the motor are two SKF 6203-Z and in the planetary gear two SKF 6005-Z. I will buy new bearings at Momentum tomorrow, and continue the assembly.
A previous owner have had the machine in a cold and humid environment. It shows even on the inside of the motor.
