A bit of a nonsense but a bead breaker for a pal of mine. Have one I made 30 odd years ago and they work well. He’s built an expedition truck so needs to be able to do it himself but also needs portability. It’s a silly thing, but may help someone on here out
And yes I know it’s on an alloy on my truck but I’m not walking down the yard just to take a photo against the right wheel
Hay at last, always stressful and hard work, a big deal for us as its a chunk of the months income so it needs to go well, a few baler issues but we go done
380 sold off the field so only had to bring in about 200
After sealing Mrs. Van to not getting liquid outside in it changed the game to inside out.
Seal for turbo oil supply disintegrated.
This means that I will have a lot of fun to getting it done.
Limited space is always available in these kind of stuff.
But we are close to starting up to Denmark.
First order to get this mess up on running
My CNC mill uses an unusual pull stud on it's CAT40 tooling, which is specific to Beaver CNC mills - (the manual mill studs are more conventional) for this reason I'm always short of pull studs and have to rob them off other tooling.
My CAT40 tightening fixture doesn't let me grasp the flange so I usually have to revert to soft jaws in the vice to unscrew the pull stud.
Today I decided to make a dedicated spanner - CNC Plasma cut from 6 MM plate - two off welded together to get the thickness.
An added incentive is that there is a bloke on eBay with some (obviously ex Beaver) CAT40 tooling that he is prepared to sell the studs from but can't unscrew them so I might have to make a special journey and 'do it on site - hence the spanner!
Made a tank from a tank, it is going to be a small hot salt tank. I had left this in a corner years ago and it saves trying to make a watertight weld. Hoping the plan works.
Anyhow, the look on my pals face when I asked him if he had checked if the tank was full after I had set the saw going was a picture :-)
Drilled a big hole in a chunk of half inch plate and welded it to the bottom of the tank, should be fine, I cut it off after the line:
Needed to easily measure out approx 10g of powder for loading the dishwasher. A bit of time in the garage and some scrap pipe. As you'll notice the soldering and my freehand cutting out of the handle is a bit rough but it does the job.
