Removing the cutterhead onan elu thicknesser jointer to replace the bearings?

It is a long time since I encountered the Elu brand. I had to junk some Elu stuff 30 years ago due to inability to obtain spares. At least bearings are mostly standard items that can be sourced from many suppliers.

I haven't replaced bearings on an Elu jointer but the design and construction is probably similar to other brands so the process is largely intuitive using the usual techniques - warming plastics, aluminium housings and using bearing pullers when appropriate.

If all else fails keep removing bits until the part you need is what remains. Often that is the only method that works due to such tools being designed to be assembled in the least possible time and least possible number of operations. Sometimes the construction is downright sneaky...

It doesn't matter if the original bearings get knocked about or stressed by the removal process but ensure the new bearings are treated gently and not stressed by pressing only on the inner race to fit on a shaft, the outer race to fit into a housing or alternatively warming a housing will ease assembly.

Good luck!

Elu. Why doesn't it start?

Old ELU TGS171 /tgs 172 tgs 173 until A3 type If the 171 or 172 a relais in the switch on the right side or a 60 mf Capacitor is damaged or only a broken powercable , if 173 in the switch on the front a little round bridge rectifier inside the switch can be defect or a powercable or motor cable can be broken .look also on the little metal actuating pin also on the switch that the whole unit is tight so by abbreviate the trigger switch will work . if not the must primary a broken cable or a loose slight contact .

Elu tgs172 motor stopped running and makes whirring noise and will turn very slowly if the saw blade is turned

Sounds like a worn out bearing.
Instead of the shaft turning concentric with the outer bearing, it roles around in the worn bearing like the wheel of a stunt car going around a loop-de-loop --except the relative sizes are closer so it makes a lot of racket.

That Elu is a cool saw concept. They came out in the 1960's before commodity Miter saws hit the market so big. I've used one before.

I suspect the bearings can be pressed out and replaced. Take the saw to a motor repair shop and you might get them replaced for $15 a bearing. There's one bearing at each end of the motor.

Elu manual

Elu is taken over by Dewalt. I can't find manual online but try to check on Dewalt band saws. ; you can use Dewalt manuals for reference. Are you cutting metal? I use Haltbar 601 series bi metal blade for cutting steels.

Elu bearings

Try using a pair of two or three leg pullers. You can also use a split plate and press them off if you have a press. You don't say which model ELU it is.
