Bandsaw lower wheel bearing replacement procedure

Since the bearings are bad, you don\'t care about hurting them worse; your three priorities are (1) getting the bearings OUT, (2) not damaging the wheel, and (3) not hurting yourself in the process.

The single best way I know to accomplish what you\'re setting out to accomplish is to use a small slide hammer with two fingers barely small enough to fit through the bearing\'s center hole. They\'ll hook on the insides of the inner bearing race. As you tap on the hammer end of the tool, it\'ll tug the bearing right out.

The second best way I know to do it is to use a long pin punch - about a 1/4" should be fine for it - and about a 120z hammer. You reach through one bearing to tap (GENTLY) on the inner race of the opposite bearing. Work ALL THE WAY AROUND so you don\'t accidentally cock the bearing in its bore as you drive it out. If you can detect that it\'s cocked a little, drive a little more on the diagonally opposite side until it straightens. If you cock the bearing in its bore, your wheel will be wrecked.

As an alternative to the pin punch, you can also drive out a bearing by using a concrete nail (available at your hardware store) turned around backwards. Concrete nails are stiffer, tougher, and harder than ordinary lumber nails. You\'d reach through one bearing\'s inner race with the HEAD of the concrete nail and tap on the nail\'s pointed TIP with your hammer. The nail\'s head will give you a straighter driving angle than the pin punch will. Still, use exactly the same procedure - tap gently and work all the way around.

Once you get one bearing out - either way, slide hammer or pin punch, you can easily drive the other bearing out. For that, you\'d use a deep socket barely small enough to fit through the hole in the wheel, plenty big enough to catch as much of the bearing\'s outer race as possible. Again, tap GENTLY on the opposite end of the socket with your hammer, and watch carefully - if that bearing cocks a little, you have to concentrate on driving the diametrically opposite side a little more so the bearing drives straight out.

If this wasn\'t for a bandsaw, I\'d recommend heating the wheel\'s hub (BUT NOT the bearing!) with a propane torch to expand the aluminum hub a little - the bearing would nearly fall out - but this IS for a bandsaw, and of all things you don\'t want the heat to to distort that wheel. Careless torch work can even melt the wheel, and it\'d certainly ruin your tire. The carpet, too. :) :) :)

No, leave the torch alone, don\'t use it here. If you\'d like to own a slide hammer, find a SMALL one & buy one. If you\'d have no later uses for a slide hammer, try working with either a concrete nail or a pin punch.

The nail gun will not shoot

I don't have that same model but my gun started doing something similar a while back. I was able to disassemble the head of the gun and found that the hammer or piston that drives the nail had rounded itself off and wasn't able to make good contact with the nail head. Instead it pushed itself on top of the nail and got wedged. It's nearly impossible to see the stuck nail or dulled piston head without taking it apart. Hopefully this will help.

The nails don't advance to the fireing pin

Assuming that the nails are moving ok down the rails and the pusher is in good order, if the driver does not return to the top position, the nails will not move into position. Remove air line to gun. Use metal rod to push driver to top position and verify that nails move into position. If the driver was at the top position, check for debris in rails or wrong nails. Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails and align the nail heads with the rails. The first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the first nail head is tilted back away from the path of the driver, the driver will just push nails back into the rails and slip past. If nails are correct and driver does not return to top, suspect worn piston oring or cracked lower bumper or lack of lubrication.

Nail gun 58-8434-4 will not drive 3" nails all the

Hi foxden503,

Welcome to fixya!

As a general rule, framing nailers use anywhere from 45 to 120 psi to drive nails. But this also depends on the hardness of the wood.
The nail head should be flush with the surface. If it sticks above the wood, increase the pressure a little bit at a time until you achieve this goal.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

I have got a second hand Duo-Fast CN350B Nail Gun. It is new to me, and I dont have a operating manual for it. I have heard they accept multipule guage nails, is this true? Also can the nail driving depth...

They use 20 degree, full round head, plastic coalated nails. You can shoot nails ranging in guage from .099 to .131 and I believe from 2 3/8" to 3 1/4" length. It is a heavy but well built and powerful tool. It's not made anymore because Duo-Fast has long been sold to ITW which also owns Paslode. The owner of Duo-Fast (third generation, family owned) got very ill with cancer and ended up passing away quite a few years back. I worked as a sales rep for Duo-Fast in the early 1990s. I can not find an owners manual link for you. They don't have an adjustable depth but they do have a flush adapter. Here is a link to a parts diagram. The flush adapter is part number CN-133 and is held on with a screw.

I have a duo-fast NSP-350F1 nailer that has a nail jammed in the breach between the driver and the tube the driver rides in. In the past, I have been able to driver the driver back into the gun and the...

This has nothing to do with oiling the tool. It was most likely caused by a worn drive pin that you should slightly sharpen, (Squared off to hit the nail head flat) or replace all together.

Remove all air lines from the tool. Find a Drift Pin that is similar in size (but smaller) than the tool's drive pin.
With the tool upside down on a slightly padded workbench and the business end of the tool facing UP, I would use a mallet and drift pin to drive the DRIVE PIN, (not the nail) back into the reset position. (Back into the air cylinder) The nail will not follow the drive pin & when done, the nail should fall out, or be removable with pliers.

Good Luck!

It wont shoot nails. It releases air by the trigger but no nails come out. Please help I am in the middle of a job. Emergency.

It may already have a nail jammed in it. You may have to take off the front face that holds the firing pin. There should be one or two screws in front just above where the nails come out. If you remove these there will be a plate that comes off and then you can remove a jammed nail. Look first to see if there is a jam before doing this. Also maybe you have the wrong guage nails or maybe you don't have proper air pressure. Hope this helps.

How do I adjust the depth of the brad nail on the porter cable BN 125A brad nailer

Hello. To adjust the depth of the nail you have to increase or decrease the air pressure from the compressor. Look at the compressor and you will see a knob or dial that you can turn to increase or decrease the air pressure. Do this adjustment in small increments testing the nailer by driving nails into a scrap of the same material you will be driving the nails into on the actual job. Increasing the pressure will drive the nail deeper and decreasing the pressure will drive the nail less deep. Joe

The nail does not go deep enough in the wood

Check to see what the regulater on your air compressor is set to as typiccaly they are set for around 50 pounds of pressure which is not enough to drive a nail all the way in wood, if it is set to low turn the adjustment up to at least 100psi and then try that if that does not work then somewhere in the air supply entering the driver there is a partial plug and this will need to be found and corrected. Hope This Helps Don

What is the proper dept to drive nails

I set my nail guns to drive the nails just flush and then finish it with a nail set if you need to recess them. I find that you can set them deeper but it leaves an ugly mark from the drive hammer that needs to be puttied. The depth of drive will vary depending on the type of wood also. The nail will go in farther on pine versus oak even though the settings didn't change.
