Tech Tip

I had a customer bring a wheel in with all the sprocket bolts broken. They were going to try to drill them out which most likely would have resulted in a ruined wheel. Instead I tig welded the bolts up past the surface of the hub, dropped a nut on there and welded them up.

I welded all five and then sprayed penetrating lube on them. Next fire up your torch and heat the hub until your lube is boiling and bubbling!

Once she is toasty take an ice cube and chill the bolt, leaving the hub hot. Take your wrench and start wiggling them. Little more lube and out they come leaving the threads perfectly intact!

You can use this fix on all kind of situations! Good luck!

Puttin' Dodge Back On The Map!

I hope Jordan's party has a lasting impression on everyone involved. I don't know if I've seen so many smiles and laughs in the same day. We love you Jordan and we'll all be there to help you up should you ever fall. Special thanks to Mary in Dodge, Wisconsin. There are still real genuine people and places to party out there! Thanks for the fun boys, I'm still wore out!

Been busy.

Working with the kids to build a drift missile and do a timing belt on my audi. My phone is full of pictures. No room for pics of the demolition of my greenhouse or my attempts to fire up the shovel. I need a new battery.
