Supertec DL 47/118 Spindle Repair

This Supertec DL 47/118 spindle is grease lubricated, pulley driven, and capable of running up to 1,050 RPM.


This Supertec DL 47118 spindle spun freely by hand when it arrived at Northland Tool, but was noisy.  After completing a full breakdown and evaluation, we recorded that the #1 and #2 bearings had very little grease left and some contamination. Lastly, the front cover and shaft nut were both heavily rusted and the rear bearings felt rough when spun by hand.
