View Full Version : South bend feed gears

I was wondering if there is any way to reduce the feed gear noise on my 14.5SB. None of the nuts seem loose. i've only had it for a year and nobody else's sb i have run make any or nearly as much noise. Is there some way cut down on it, or are my gears just worn out, which i find hard to believe as the rest of the machine doesn't have much wear.

Maybe slap some really thick grease on them? We've got a small southbend in our shop and i don't really notice much noise, at least nothing that is annoying sounding or out of the ordinary.
