RE: ROK bearing work?

I really miss Jim, very sad. He did a lot of work on my L34, micro polished the spindle, put in a ceramic bearing and worked on the motor. Speed stability is very good. But despite all the work, the idler wheel itself is what will keep the noise down. I have 2 stock idler wheels which were rebuilt and are still a bit noisy. I also have 2 custom built idler wheels, one is aluminum and one is delrin, both have rubber o-rings. The noise level was substantially reduced with these idler wheels.

You can polish the spindle yourself as was mentioned by texanater.
