Foredom HP61 Ball Bearing for H.30, H.43T, H.44T HandpiecesHP61
Which type bearing does your handpiece have?
Our older handpieces have Press Fit type bearings that require replacement at our factory. In 2002, we started using Slip Fit bearings which allow the user to change them out.
The ring pattern on any of our H.30 and H.44 handpieces identifies the type of bearings inside:
1. If your handpiece has 5 narrow rings at the front end and then thicker sets of 3 rings, 2 rings and 3 rings toward the back end, then the bearings are Slip Fit and you can replace them on your own.
2. If the ring pattern is different than noted, the bearings are Press Fit and you will need to send them in to the factory for replacement.
