Alex, good suggestions! I have checked the bearings. There is no play in the shaft whatsoever. This is also why I somewhat doubt the theory of the rotor not being centered. The motor can be take apart and put back together very smoothly and runs very well. The housing barely gets warm. When I opened it up, the interior was dry.There is also never any oil residue around the motor seems. When it leaks, there is always a line of oil under the blades on the surface of the table going the way the blades turn. There is also a large puddle on the base directly below the bearing. The blades will have oil streaks. I made sure the return holes are clear. I’m really wondering about those wick since they are hard as a rock...
