    santinelli 9000 bearing question

    Just started hearing a faint whining when edging a lens, like a bearing is worn and trying to fail. More likely to be from the spindle or from the drive motor? (I assume both have bearings. I can't tell with certainty by ear where the noise is coming from.)

    When, exactly, did it start?

    The edger has about 50k cuts on it. Never heard this light, high pitched noise until a few days ago. I hear it more on the bevel cycle than on the roughing wheel.
