    If we knew what kind of machine it is we might offer advice based on similar machines we have worked on. Is this similar to the Grob 120TP which uses very high speed bearings.

    I Googled the machine parts break down. It looks like you'll be dealing with a deep groove ball bearing on one end and a angular contact bearing on the other end.

    All the spindles I've rebuilt with a angular contact bearing have to have the clearance set. It's not hard to do, if you've done it before. If you don't have any experience doing that maybe you can hire it out.

    It's an easy job if you have the proper tools and shop to do it.

    It's an early 2000s SCM T130 shaper. Google is your friend...

    My goggle came up with a Grob T120tp plane. I do not think it is the same Grob still making bandsaws in Wisconsin. Unlike many here I donot really know any tools by model number.
    I have noticed Tesla never seems to put a model number on their cars. Ford puts the model in letters six inches tall on the tailgate of their trucks.

    Not sure why that would happen if you put "SCM T130" in the search. Nice plane, for sure, however.

    I probably typed t120 instead of t130? It does have a single spindle. Kind of hard to replace the blade.

    You can't leave off the "SCM" from the search...it's conceivable that many companies might have "things they make" that use the same or similar identifiers, especially when numbers are involved. SCM is the manufacturer of the machine the OP is asking about, so including that in the search targets the results.

    Tom, have you tried Parts Pronto which is part of the SCM website? You have to register, but that's the parts and manuals part of the company.

    Jim, I will try there. The T130 does not have a serial # tag on it but will try there with out the #s and see. Thanks

    Trying to get the nut off holding the pulley. It is not a hex but round with 4 slots on it. Thinking I need to make a socket or has anyone found one to match?

    Flat pin wrench. Doc you have one for a an angle grinder? Or make one from a piece of angle iron and two hardened allen head set screws with nuts to match. You will need to drill the two allen size holes and maybe a large axle clearance hole in between them.

    This horrible fright version is probably too short for enough leverage to work. It will probably bend as well.

    If the slots go clear to the rim then a hook wrench might work. If you have the correct size the solid type shown are better then the hinged ones.

    Regardless of what type of wrench it may be easier if the wrench is so long the handle is beyond the wheel rim in free air where your hand can grip it all around. If the sheet metal guarding allows that.
