Today's little job: Make up a slide hammer to extract a bearing seal from a JCB 3CX front differential pinion shaft. Yesterdays efforts to remove this reluctant seal resulted in a broken 'seal remover' so time to make something a little more stout.
6 mm silver steel bent red hot into a hook, and threaded M6 into the end of a 7/16" bar the far end of which I welded a random 'bar end' as a stop. The sliding hammer being another 'bar end' drilled 1/2"
So today's job is lose 150 euros while performing an SDS max hammer drill repair.
100 euros in parts (paid from the customer)
50 euros for my work .
Made a miserable mistake while assembling it
Destroying ball bearings ,their seats, gears, armature and motor housing.
It was going everything alright , but I've eard the characteristic sounds of broken metal , discovered the mistake .
Not what I was thinking and called the customer informing him that he will get his money and the hammer back, because it's not cost effective to repair.
I've destroyed it in a split second without even be aware of what was happening.
Things that happens .
As you might understand today's not a great day
