    +1 for the Gearwrench big T-handle and chuck. I also picked up a smaller size chuck made by them but they don't seem to have a T-handle for that size. They do have a die holder for the big one.

    It's amazing how densely packed the dirt is between the roots, isn't it? Can't even dig it out with a machine properly.

    Excellent idea but these are way too big for that. I can't get them in a 2.5 yard bucket on a trackloader, all I can do is roll them around.

    I have found it way easier to push the whole tree down...

    I use Alro's website to price material for quotes. When I buy, I call my salesman and he always gets me a lower price.

    Thanks for that. I'm seeing prices of ~$380 per roll elsewhere and I'm considering trying a couple sizes.
    Press fit is not a concern, the shells are clamped in place in a split housing.

    The bearing shells have steel backs, just like an engine bearing. They form an interference fit in the saddles when the saddle size is correct. I need to restore that fit by shimming with the correct...

    Tim have you ever talked to Mike Eckhart at CNC Machine Services? He's been way more help to me than Siemens ever has. In the last 20 years anyway. He knows Cincinnatis inside and out.

    Nickel vs copper shim material for crush fit

    Had an experienced rebuilder recommend I use pure nickel shim material to correct the fit of shell type plain bearings in a machine because that's how he does it. Another says brass or steel would be...

    How far do you need to move them? For small machines like that I just slide them on 1/2"or 3/4" diameter steel rods, unless I'm going 30 or more feet.

    Make sure you put enough beads in the tire, it's better to err on the high side. I put beads in the new 12X16.5 tires on the front of my old 69 Chevy C20 and was disappointed that it shook at speed....

    I put them in big heavy 245/70 x 19.5 10 ply tires on steel wheels on a 1 ton and they ran perfectly for 100K miles. The tire store had them. You can blow them in through the valve stem also.

    I read internal to mean the male (inside)part and external to mean the female (outside) part. I've confused myself. Again.
