Re: Swivel head

John,
I recently rebuilt the swivel on Mango #62.  The bearings are steel, not the modern Delrin type.  Good news is that I was able to purchase the bearings and seals at a local bearing shop.  I had to take the unit to a machine shop to press it apart.  It is really not a great design, buy mine lasted more than 25 years before it was a problem.
