This Cincinnati Sabre 1000 spindle arrived at Northland Tool and Electronics for a full breakdown and evaluation.

- Clean all parts of the spindle
- Replace all bolts, o-rings, and bellevilles

After reassembly of all components, adjusting bearing preload, and undergoing break-in and testing procedures, this spindle passed our final quality inspection before being returned to our customer with a 1-year warranty.
