Wave Spring Washer on T-8 Main Shaft
« on: May 03, 2021, 09:29:53 pm »
My T-8 has a Wave Spring Washer on the drive wheel side of the main shaft. It seats inside the outside of the nylon bearing (#16 in the T-8 spare parts list attached)

The replacement main shaft kit MSK250, for both the T-8 and T-7, does not include this Wave Spring Washer (#31 in the T-8 spare parts list).

Is there a reason that a Wave Spring Washer is not included in the MSK250 main shaft kit?

I don't remember even having a 'Spring Washer' when I swapped mine out.  I'd contact Tormek support for the best answer (and post what they say).

A couple of videos don't show it either....

Those are not T-8's.  So I guess the replacement kit doesn't include the wave spring washer.

My T-8 has always had the Wave Spring Washer.

But the replacement/upgrade shaft kit, that I got for my T-7, did not include a Wave Spring Washer.  Either did my new cast aluminum drive wheel. 

I contacted Tormek and they are sending me one
