    I see used panel saws on C-list all the time for 500-1200. That seems like a decent price to consider compared to a dedicate track saw. How accurate are they?

    I was thinking wrong. there is no such thing as a slip fit bearing. It is the shaft undersize that makes it a slip fit. Did you write down the number before returning?

    Any ballbearing that is inch size will cost extra, but they reamed you. You can not drill the races. Grinding only. You could try a abrasive rotary expanding hone. I tried that on one cutter for...
