Just purchased a Metz clone bead roller. Only tried it with the shearing dies and it works fine with exception of the depth of throat with the long handle. So I have purchased a tractor steering wheel for a Massey Fergusson : D and for a little dexterity and will also add a motor gearbox assy from a mains operated single phase winch. The centre bore is too small so will need some drilling out and the 10mm holding down bolt for the dies will get a hand wheel fitted so it’ll be easier to set up and I’ll try and fit a return spring. It’ll also get some beefing up at the back of the plate to take away any flex. It seems these clone machines all suffer from the same issues. My first issue is I was given a new Nutool winch which had never been used but the pendant was missing and the wiring incomplete. I’ll need to source a pendant which I assume also includes the capacitor. I’ve put a loose wire back in where it seems to come from and flashed it with the supply but it doesn’t turn in either direction I’m assuming because the cap is missing. I could verify this by spinning the rear fan and initiating the start but I’ll hang on until I find a pendant. If anyone has a spare please let me know. As you’d expect the drawing and some of the cable numbers differ but it’s not too hard to fathom. Yellow wire from the motor innards is the centre of the windings connected to neutral with up or down via red or green. I’ll make an adaptor from the cable drum and cut down the shaft and retain my sprocket using a large stepped washer made on the lathe and bolt in the end.
