Knurling the shaft a little plus a little locktite is a standard process for a repair to a worn shaft. I do it often to repair a worn shaft on an electric motor. The down side if if you have to take things apart again because you forgot to get all the wavy washers back in. That can be an annoyance.
just so we're all on the same page, what exactly is knurling and does it render the shaft useless relative to future repairs like sleeving?
Unisaw Motors on ebay are $370.00 plus shipping.
do you have a link for the motors you are referring to and are they baldor or leeson motors? will a knurled repair last? the $400 shop offerred to knurl the shaft and replace the bearings for $185. would a repair like that last for a few years of light duty (plywood and softwoods) hobbyist use? pardon the number of questions but i'm in unfamiliar territory regarding these motors.
