  • I’m sorry you’re dealing with something so unfortunate. I can’t imagine your excitement over getting this machine only to realize the unfortunate situation it has left you in hindering that excitement. A plague on all their houses who had wronged you with this deal. Obviously I don’t mean that lol but that’s f*cked up. I wish you the best with getting this situation remedied and hope the previous owners will do the right thing and reimburse what you should have had discounted to begin with in what is needed to fix this beautiful hammer of power. You got this Alec. I look forward to seeing it in use.

  • What do you do about a purchase like that Alec? Those feet are thick and are the main point of contact for that hammer. And really thick, to the point is there a weld with enough penetration to work for any long period of time. So my question is, can u get your money back, back charge them Or she them for misrepresenting the product?

  • You got screwed! It CAn be repaired I think you should probably look at it under UV light with magnification to look for micro fractures before attempting to have it fixed though , if its THAT broke ass then its probably worse than that at the small level as well!

    Aaron WolfenbargerAaron Wolfenbarger7 dager siden
  • Sorry Alec, you got taken for a ride on that hammer if you were told it hadn't been used much and the worn paint was intentionally done to look like patina. You don't need to have the hammer welded and the motor rewound on a lightly used or low hour machine. The cracks on the motor mounts look fairly fresh based on the light orange rust. So most likely they're from moving the machine. Those old machines were built to last and be repaired so odds are that after some initial repairs it'll be good to go for a long time. But yeah, if it was sold to you as a machine that saw little use, my guess is you got conned.

  • That's no simple piece of furniture, and top heavy to boot. Looks like the load rolled over into the lifting slings during moving at some point and the motor got aced. I'd have gone with the NEMA motor and turned the shaft/recut the keyway, but... you got it done. As for that drive gear removal, that helicoil was a rather unpleasant speed bump.

  • Really surprised it is 15 horsepower. I put together a building for feed mixing one time, and when they starting bringing in the machines that were going to inhabit this building it was insane. One machine had like half a dozen 50 HP electric engines installed in parallel. And this was a tiny single room operation.

  • How is this only 300lbs? Did you miss a zero? Funnily enough, I just got a shipment of a fridge that claims to be 370lbs, but I would swear it feels more like 120lbs when I pick it up. So maybe I just do not know what things weigh.

    Jonathon WisnoskiJonathon Wisnoski9 dager siden
    • @Timothy S. Thanks Timothy S. that makes sense. I will assume it is 300lbs per square inch of hammer head or something like that as well, because that sounds orders of magnitude weaker than would be useful. If the hammer could not lift the man operating it, it would surprise me.

  • Or bore that sleeve out .125 with a boring bar on your manual mill. Using a dial indicator to find the center of the hole and have a spindle mounted boring bar. Then trim the key .0625 to fit the keyway. Because you would have bored the hole out .125 (.0625 each side). Just what I would have done. .0625 isn't much. 🤷

  • 1 inch diameter boring bar probably still would not give you the rigidity that you need to go 6 inches deep, as a rule of thumb 4 times your diameter is really as far as you wanna have your tool sticking out.
