    I have a p6 hiway sander that needs some tlc before next year.

    Drag chain
    spinner shaft
    spinner shaft bearings
    drag chain bearings
    basically every bearing on the sander
    the shafts the drag chain spins on that the bearings and sprockets are on.

    got pics or part numbers? I have a few parts. Some parts will interchange with my Henderson stuff.

    What size sander... and are you looking for new. I have an old one that could be robbed and refurbished. Doubt whether the bearings are good, but spinner,drag chain,shafts could be salvaged.

    The bearings are usually just standard pillow or flange bearings readily available from any bearing distributor or online for a fraction of what the dealer will charge you. Each bearing should have a number stamped on it somewhere.

    it may not use bearings at all on the idler shaft. Older Hi-Way model P's used a "banjo eye" style of "bearing" on the idler shaft. End of the neck was drilled out so the adjustment bolt could go up inside of it.
