Yes, the warranty is up, I don't use mine like most do. lol I miced the shaft and the top is worn down considerably compared to where the bottom shaft spins on the lower bearing. The bearings checked out great, just the top of the shaft was worn. The pulley was tight as could be. What I find that is so strange is one, this kind of wear withg such low hours and two, the bearings are not worn at all, I even put the mic to them. I have never ran anythin though it other than Triplet so no abrasives but the chemilces don't even contact this piece. Accordiing to the manual i can buy just the shaft but I don't see how this could wear like this other than a defect in the material, or how the heat treating of the steel shaft. Anyone else have this problem?
