Another day, another spindle!
After more than a decade of solid service in an XYZ TC250 this spindle finally gave up.
As the photos show, coolant ingress over time washed the grease out of the bearings causing them to heat up, dry out and eventually fail.
This was a particularly challenging one, the chuck and clamping cylinder have never been off and were seized on, we had to cut the nut to disassemble it!
