View Full Version : Bent armature shaft

07-08-2007, 11:23 PM
I have a bent armature shaft(5/16"x 6") off a squirrel cage fan. One end is threaded and the other end is square cut. No center holes. How can I find the bent areas and correct without using a lathe? Thanks Paul

V blocks? drill press? a couple bearings (608s from a skateboard or roller blades are 5/16 bore) in an improvised fixture?

Or take it to Graingers and hand it to the counter guy who will pluck a new one off the shelf in less than a minute.
