Peruzzo tb100c blade change

Recommended Posts

Hi, I purchased a tb100c  but it's one of the first in the country and the dealer doesn't know much about it. Has anyone done a blade change or flip? It looks like you have to remove the whole cassette in the manual which seems like unnecessary work for a simple blade flip.

Remove the infeed hopper, you can get in through there no bother. Order a load of spare bolts, there is always a few that don’t come undone and round the heads. In that case I’ve welded a 17mm nut to the bolt by welding through the centre of the nut until it’s filled the nut, the heat also loosens the stud. Remember to check the anvil clearance after changing the blades.

 

also remove the battery before welding next to it they can go bang!

 

ive only had to remove the cassette after a dumpy bag went through 🤦‍♂️

Hello,

 From experience with similar machines, applying the heat of a small gas blowtorch to eat bolthead works very well.

 An impact driver is also a usefull tool.

  Enjoy your machine.

Do you guys use copper grease on the new bolts? It looks like I will need a new set.

I copper grease blade bolts.

Thanks guys. Managed to get 4 bolts with a gas torch. Had to weld nuts on the rest. Now to find some bolts that fit from someone other than the dealer. He wants $11 per bolt and takes 3 months to post one. I've seen the same grade high tensile bolts for 16 cents.

Just make sure they’re from a reputable dealer and not chinesium.

Blade bolts snapping is inconvenient at best, lethal at its worst
