Entec Ch25 Roller Box blades and grease

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm in the process of doing some servicing on my Entec, ser no CH25PH77030297 and have managed to get 6 of the roller blades off one roller and am now struggling with the second roller!  Lots of drilling and tapping is going to be required I think!  I'm going to get the blades sharpened but would like to know if there is a min length that they should not be sharpened past and indeed, what the correct angle is for them.


Also, I've cleaned out the old grease from the roller assembly (mine has a black acetyl 'rod' in the middle of each roller which I assume is a 'gap filler') and would like to know what grease I can (or can't) use when refilling them and of course during routine re-greasing during use.  I have Lithium EP3 in one of my grease guns - can I use this?


Could you also let me know the tightening torque for the roller box socket screws.  I'll be using threadlock on them as well.


<edit> Just seen on the TW150 thread below that the torque is 45lb/ft and copper grease (no threadlock mentioned) so I'll do that when I come to reassemble.


Many thanks!

FWIW I wouldn’t have bothered taking them off, just touched them up with a dremel. (At least that’s what I did to good effect)


As for grease it’s not under high speed or temperature so no need to be too picky.

Does no one from Timberwolf Towers read Arb Talk any more? I'd hoped to have a reply by now as they are not tricky questions.

Hi Phil,

This may be my fault.  Timberwolf should get an email notification when things are posted in this section but it looks like the settings from the old forum software didn't carry over

Thanks Steve, at least you can now check your settings so you get the notifications again.  Hopefully answers to follow?


Oh and thanks Mick but I don't think a dremel will save my roller blades - I bought the CH25 second hand and I'm not sure if any previous owners bothered with the rollers - they are a bit banana shaped!  I'm slowly sorting it out, bit by bit!

Ah, sorry, I didn't realise you weren't a TimberWolf chappie!  I now see you are an Arb Talk chappie!  Cheers for emailing them to let them know.
