  • Replacing bearing on Table Saw R4512

    I've had this table saw for about 11 years and still works great but needs a new drive bearing which is NOT AVAILABLE! The bearing in question has been making noise for about 5 years and I fear it will seize (malfunction) at any inopportune time.
    I build cabinets and furniture primarily. At present I'm building Sea Chests and getting ready to start my 6th one and more nervous each day
    with that noisy bearing. Ball Bearing (6202-2Z) Part Number:079027007054
    I don't know the actual size of the bearing, ID, OD, thickness, but I can't imagine RIDGID designing with a non standard ball bearing.
    Can anyone help that knows who might have this part or know the actual size?

    You know the size, you just don't know you know.

    6202 is the trade size, the 2Z is the type of seals.


    You can buy them anywhere, McMaster-Carr is a good place to start.
    You will find them cheaper, but their stuff is usually quality and for a
    bearing I wouldn't want to go cheap only to save a dollar or two, but
    regret it in the end when that bearing gives you fits for failing early.
