chipper shute moving

Recommended Posts

Well I had 5 minutes before the start of the day, had a old oil can kicking about so thought I’d give Al’s fix a go. 
5 minutes and I’d roughly cut out a plastic shim. Chit is tighter than a Scots wallet now! 
Get me out of trouble for the time been. 
Cheers guys

Nice one Jose! Hope you remembered to cut the hole out of the middle...

Have a great Christmas mate. Catch up in the New Year sometime.

The bolt and nyloc nut on the opposite side of the chute to the wrench and washer is critical. The adjustment is not done just by tightening the nyloc nut as you’d think, it is adjusted by the bolt which has only half a revolution of travel. Once that bolt has set the torque if you like, then tighten the nyloc to that. My lads take the spout off every night and we have no probs at all in it moving whilst at work my friend.
