    On old heavy equipment, I have in desperation, pressed the offending bushings out. The grease in the back channel was rock hard. I cleaned them, pressed them back together, and did a much better job...

    Check out post #20 just above. It's awesome. So powerful that a buddy of mine broke the anvil in half on one. They replaced it no problem.

    I think Milwaukee is the best cordless tool right now. Their 1400 ft lb 1/2 18v impact gun is the cats meow for breaking tough bolts. I have been using it quite a bit and really like the tool. Their...

    I have picked up a Scotchman cold saw with a stuck vise also. After two days of penetrating fluid, scotch pads, and a rubber mallet I have finally unstuck it. It must have really been tight to start...

    Thanks, It is only 10 days old for me so I will return it for another drive or a refund.

    Yeah, it's a 230v only drive which I guess is really 240v in the US? Anyway, not a 115/120v unit at all. Hate that it didn't work.

    I wonder what % of new drives just fail right out of the box? Old...

    I bought a new KBAC 29 single phase input VFD off Ebay and on initial power up the breaker trips. VFD not switched to run mind you. I check my wiring and try again and breaker trips immediately. I...

    My grandfather traded a pistol for a model T back in the day. I kid you not, the thing had an oak piston in one of the holes. :D

    Man, that is a lot of welding machine. Those boards look very involved. Maybe some help could be gleaned from this manual?
    It also appears the potentiometers can go bad on this machine. For that...

    I wish I had taken pictures of the one I repaired in similar shape. It was a cast steel Fisher brand anvil of about 250lbs as I recall and it had been used as a cutting table similar to yours. I did...

    That's interesting. Wire fed tig, haven't tried that one. Been teaching my 13 year old to weld which has kinda rekindled my interest in it other than just making money.

    Welders that are new and with a warranty are very hard to beat. A machine with 7K hours could go kaput at anytime.

    Adama, I've done this several times in the past without a problem. Don't be an ass. Overheating hydraulic seals has what to do with electrical work? Absolutely nothing. Again, don't be an ass. But...

    It kinda made the whole house smell like somebody farted a piece of delrin. My better half was NOT impressed. :D

    "Oil's don't absorb as much of the microwave energy as does the "rubber" in the seal."

    Now you tell me LOL! I wondered how the seal could burn up while the oil still not hot. Thanks for the...

    No metal bits. I have heated seals up in water in the microwave several times before without a problem. Maybe it's the material these seals are made of? I don't know, but I'll be using Gbent's...
  19. Melted hydraulic cylinder seals in the microwave! Yeah, I'm pissed.

    Just crawled out of the woodwork to complain about it! I had the seal in a bowl of oil. 1.5 minutes later oil was not too hot to touch, yet seal started smoking! :mad5: Now it's worthless. In the...

    My neighbor wants to drill a well and is thinking about paying somebody to perform a water witching technique. I told him this was a crock of bull. What do you think? :D
