He steps through the individual parts including the trunnions, bearings and the arbor assembly and demonstrates how to clean your ways without a greasy mess. He also shows you how to remove the old bearings, then install new ones using simple tools.

    Please let people know that WD-40 is an excellent penetrant and water displacer and is good for loosening tight assemblies, but is NOT a good long term lubricant. If left on the assembly and if there is a little bit of heat generated, it actually becomes something akin to post-it note glue.
