White and Bud, As I have stated in an earlier post, Iíve never owned a circle cutter but a slitter is a slitter. Are the wheels sharp or totally rounded from years of use. Distance between cutting wheels? Shim them if you can. Play in the shafts will also give you a burr. Iím willing to bet that there is a bronze sleeve bearing pressed into the casting. If you have the means to press them out they can be had from McMaster-Carr and you can hone them with a $15.00 dingle-berry hone. If there isnít any bearing and the unit was designed to run metal on metal and is egged out, you can always go to your local machine shop and have them line bore it and install the bronze bearings. Hope this helps, Bob
