Hello all. I was fortunate enough to attend Paul’s workshop in Chicago last week and learned a great deal, but the one thing I was unable to retain is what exactly the process is for fixing these missing (broken?) bushings in my riders.
As I understand it, there are taper pins holding the assembly together, but they’ve been smoothed down on the small end, so removing them isn’t simply a matter of tapping them out, right?
Paul also indicated that this might be a job for a local machine shop – any ideas where in Chicago might be a good place to start? What exactly should I tell them?
Lastly, once I get the assembly apart, how do I get the bearings into the rider roller?
I’m attaching photos to confirm the problem, but I don’t think there’s much mystery here.
