I'm in real need of help this time. I have a Jet-16 mill drill that needs all the spindle bearings replaced and have no idea how to do it. I am envious of those of you who have worked with firearms and machining for a long while, I didn't start until Dad fell and I wanted to have something to do with him that we both would enjoy. He loved it. Now, though, the mill has gotten to the point that I can't really make anything because of the wobble of the spindle. I am retired and can't afford new equipment or a repairman. Could anyone talk me through how to change the bearings? Embarrassing to be poor but I love working with metal, particularly on firearms and I'll suck it up and ask for help. Is there anyone willing to help?

Is it clone of a smaller(that is 25 or 30) Rong Fu?
ps. I'm so "rich" myself, that I'm still building one from odds and ends(started around 2011...).
But one of these days...
