Very similar to one a friend made.
IF yours is like his, the adjuster bolt rides directly on the shaft.
after much use his shaft was getting worn pretty good.
He made a new shaft and mounted a bearing at the point the adjusted screw would have contacted the shaft.
The outer race of the bearing contacts the screw, and the shaft spins free. Thing works smoother than the day he first built it .

I thought about doing that with a bearing,but I was in a hurry to see how good it was going to work first.I have a friend that can make me some really good dies.I now building a plenishing hammer,than an english wheel,then a tubing bender.I built a 30 ton press,and a sheet metal brake,and a rotisorie.

Thanks for the motivation, I'm designing in my mind a bead roller made from my old DeWalt radial arm saw.
