R-Man......

make sure the allen head screw in the rotating assembly didn't back out and bind it up...... there should be a little 'window' where you can see the screw i'm talkin' 'bout.....
if it did freeze up, then why haven't you oiled your tool lately????

The bearing doesn't last long with a lot of use.
You can get them at most parts stores for a couple of bucks.
One of the gm alternator bearings is the same.
I keep several on hand, seem like I replace one a week.

Cool

If you can spin the desk by hand and it's smooth and spinning then the bearing should be all right.

Does it spin but not orbit? If it does the locking mechanism is engaged.

Or to coin a phrase we recently learned from our friends across the pond, sometimes you just gotta' "toss" it.

I'm tellin' ya man......

there's an allen head set screw in the inner collar. (if you got a cheap da like me) look in the debris/oil exhaust hole thingy, rotate it around, and see if there isn't a bolt thats backed out too far........
