Fings wot broke

Recommended Posts

Bolt holes on the lower feed roller bearing had slogged out.I made a triangular spacer from 10mm plate,welded 12 mm three studs to it ,then hot glued it onto the machine.

 

Welder was acting up so that's why there are so many passes.

Would Helicoils have negligated the need for welding, or was the shaft damaged where the bearing previously sat?

The holes were slogged out.re drilling and going up a size want an option as I had already taken them from 10 to 12mm in the past and I would have run out of steel on the bearing if I had taken them to 14mm.

Fitted a new grinding wheel to the bandit, the old one had elongated a few of its pocket thread holes making tightening the pockets an arse -the rocks here give the grinder a hard life. 
took the opportunity whilst the backing plate was off to fit the updated belt tensioner and beef up the backing plate mount too.

Just a full service to do now
