Above at left you see a spindle with a damaged bearing housing as part of a TD 124 skeleton, found on a flee market. It was a pity to let the parts go to waste. So I stored them in a box. I was waiting for a bearing replacement.
years later the opportunity presented itself to buy a new bearing housing
from professional machinist Mirko Djordjevic in the US. The bearing
is pictured above at right. It is a copy of the original bearing and is
professionally and precisely machined from stainless steel. The measurements
for the bushings are exact. The existing, original base plate from your
old bearing housing can be used on this new one. But if you do not want
to use it, you can order a new, heavier base plate, also turned precisely
from stainless steel, together with a new thrust (pad) plate and gasket
(also in the picture). The spindle fits to a T.
