Question about Craftsman 3/8" Corded Drill
I bought this old drill at an heirloom auction. When I turn it on, it made a very rough growling sound, with it being worse when I reversed the direction. How do I approach dis-assemble and grease the bearing? How would I know the bearings are beyond repair? What kind of grease is acceptable for the bearings. What else should I grease?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It must be fairly old because virtually everything for it in regard to parts have been changed or discontinued. Go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action and put in the model number. Maybe you can find something out about its age, but I don't see anything.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

SOURCE: I have an old corded 3/8
Yes, the bushings are dry, and it is screaming for oil. But, it doesn't like oil, it likes grease better, but it is hard to get in there to grease it. (sometimes), you might get it apart and both ends exposed. Then get the bushing off the end, you won't be able to get it off the front, either squish some grease in there or get the oil can out and try it. Good luck.
