Anatomy of table saw arbor assembly4/17
Can anybody tell me how table saw arbors are put together?
They seem to contain three elements: There is a bearing, a shaft and a quill that holds the bearing.
How is the shaft secured to the bearing?
How is the bearing seated to the quill?
This can't be like rocket science. There are millions of saws being made. Can anybody point me to a clear diagram of how this is composed?
I think your going to need to be more specific, different saws are going to have different types of arbor setups. A Unisaw arbor for instance bears little resemblance to a Tannewitz direct drive saw.
If your just looking for generic info try checking some of the manuals available on line which will have exploded views.
Lastly in regards to how the bearings are fit....they're pressed. There are a lot of tips and tricks for getting bearings on to a shaft. But the best way is to simply use a press and press them right on.
