Swivel Bearings for height adjustable vintage Swan Chair
Replacement Swivel Bearings for height adjustable vintage Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen.
The Swivel Bearings only fits to swan chairs produced before 1975 with 4- rip base (before changed to round tube).
Set include the small and the large bearing. (2pc at all)
To get the bearings off, 1. take off this screw
2. lock the lever very strong and 3. pull the complete axle with base with a hard pull out of the bushing. Some creep oil may help.
4. The bearings are pressed on the shaft., but not very strong. We used a screw driver and a hammer to get them off. Take care not to damage the shaft!
5. When you put the new bearings on the shaft make sure to press only the inner ring of the bearing!
