Default Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

had a bit of a challenge on the go last Sunday .... Rory ( JD450A ) has had an issue with his towed roller and was in need of some bushes to get it mobile again .... and couldn't find any ... POP with a lathe, but, with a little lateral thinking, these will be in the post Monday



got all set up earlier .....



went to the genny ..... pressed the go button and ... several clicks from the control box and ...sod all .... running fine last week .... oil pressure off the scale and hadn't even turned over .... so lots of head scratching :unsure: ..... very similar fault to the last occasion it pissed me off

appeared to be going through the motions of trying ... just not doing it ?? had a good shufty around everything then checked the earths to the starter ... dropped a connection off .. cleaned it all and ........ away it went with perfectly normal oil gauge ... I'm hoping that I may well have found the culprit

so.....I was away ....

as said a bit of lateral thinking was needed for this .....



Ajax lathe ......... started with this ..



the jig saw came out for the other three

then it needed a hole ... a 70mm one







as a solid disc, gripping it was easy .... as a tube it was a different matter and had to get it 'just right'



mission accomplished .... "where there's a will " - etc..... but jeez what a bloody mess .... took me an hour to clean up all the acetal swarf !!

can report that the Ajax is a peach ..... the DRO is the bollaux, for summat like this, where repeatable centre set up was paramount ... accurate to 0.1 thou. .... gonna enjoy owning this ....... and the genny ....... started / stopped fine all afternoon

Great to be 'driving' a machine tool again ..... and I love machining plastics .... so nice to work with ... .... no sharp, or hot bits
