G0704 Belt Drive DVD-ROM
G0704 Quill Belt Drive Complete
Replace the upper and lower stock tapered roller bearings with Angular Contact bearings. The stock bearings are only rated for about 4000 rpm.
Note: You'll need to make a 50x62x4mm spacer for the lower bearing,
and 25x36x3 for the upper, aluminum would be fine. The stock bearings
are thicker than the A/C's and the spacers are needed to fill the voids to have enough threads on the spindle to apply preload.
You can buy shims from mcmaster.com that should work instead.
part# 98089A404 25x36x1mm $7.39 for a pack of 10
part# 98055A435 50x62x1mm $4.22 for a pack of 5
Update: I thought of a better way to shim the lower bearing so that the retainer would screw back into the quill close to it's stock depth, (it sticks out a little when tightened against the lower bearing as I did it)
Use a 35x45x4mm shim that would go on the spindle first below the lower bearing instead of the 50x62x4mm on top of the bearing as described above. You can buy shims from McMaster.com that would work instead.

for the Isoflex NBU-15, you need
to create an account to see the pricing and order. Note: The bearings need very little grease,
.5cc for the upper and 1cc for the lower bearing. A small syringe does well for applying the grease.

There are small differ-

I suggest trying to use the stock bearings first especially if they have been broken in for several weeks. The manufacturers use different suppliers and the quality can differ between mills. Yours may work fine at speed whereas mine overheated. My stock bearings in my X2 are still in use at
6000 rpm where others have burnt up at only 4500. It's a crapshoot.
and Linux too!

Notice: It may be beneficial to upgrade the stock radial bearings on the gear assembly, parts 205 and 207 in the parts list. http://cdn0.grizzly.com/partslists/g0704_pl.pdf especially if you want to exceed
6500 rpm with the belt drive. You can replace them with some good Nachi bearings from vxb.com. The parts list incorrectly lists the lower bearing 207 as a 7007 bearing which is an Angular Contact bearing, it actually uses deep groove bearings so a 6007 bearing.
