Screw falling out

If anyone could help me...

There is a screw under the bearing, which doesn't hold the rotating part any more. I replaced it with a new screw, holds perfect, but when I start working with it, it comes loose again. So I assume the thread is gone in the shaft. can I buy a new shaft somewhere?

This is exactly the same screw that was broken on the pictures of stefstef.

Your help is much appreciated!

Try some thread lock. Or get a local engineering works to run a tap down it to clean the threads. If they are badly worn you may have to drill out and rethread to next size up; before you do check the bolt head will still fit.

I know this is an older thread but having replaced the bearings in my DAS-6 today and them putting up a bit of a fight I thought I'd expand upon the instructions above with my solution, in case anyone else has similar struggles!

Mine wouldn't budge 'manually' so I knocked up a little puller using some 25mm x 5mm stainless steel flat bar, a couple of M6 set-crews and a 5/16 UNF set-screw with matching plain nut:

The centre hole is drilled 8.5mm dia to clear the 5/16 UNF x 50mm set screw and the outer two holes drilled and tapped M6 on 37mm centres.

Assembled and ready to go:

The 5/16 UNF screw threads into the centre boss, the nut 'locks' it off then the M6 screws are wound in to gently pull the bearings out:


Curiously, the new bearings slid in much easier than the old ones came out, so I smeared some locking compound around the outer races to keep them in place. All done:

Hope this is of help to some
