    I bought a Drott 40 and the pillow block bearings are no good. Does anyone have any information on replacement parts?

    Take them to a bearing supplier who should be able to identify them and supply replacements.

    Hi John,
    I took the bearing to Case and they said just the bearing would run $1,500. I thought that was very high. Do you think a bearing supplier would be cheaper?

    Thanks
