I got one small one checked off my list on Friday- a spare spindle for our 285. Last winter Dad got a used one out of the junk yard because the threads were stripped on the one on the tractor. I ended up building up the shaft on that one and turning it down before installing it.

We were gonna scrap the old one, but then I got a bug to see if I could fix it, or atleast how difficult it would be. I repaired the threads a number of months ago, but the shaft was worn on this one as well. I finally got around to repairing that on Friday.










Next Friday I'm gonna work on the spare spindle for our 1855. That one is a bit more involved- the shaft is bent a little where it went inside the forging, and the bore that the shaft goes in is elongated. Gonna weld up the bore and mill it out, hopefully for a light press fit with the shaft (gotta build that up and turn it down too) and then weld it back together.

After that, I think I'm gonna fix the seat frame for my 1600, and after that possibly tackle taking the radiator out of the 1855 that's leaking and possibly looking at the turbo-I think it's dumping oil into the exhaust.

Looks great. I am only a "hack" machinist. Every thing I own are manual cranks, but it gets my basic repairs done. Luckily my dad is a machinist so if it has to be super precise I give him a call. Plus he really likes to run my old lathe. He"s always asking if I need anything made or fixed.

Nope, it's a Tree w/ Dynapath control. I had a coworker make a program for the threadmill as I'm a little rusty at Mastercam and would have been there for 2 days trying to figure it out, seeing as I've never programmed a threadmill before.

We program pretty much everything offline in our shop, so I don't do much at the controls anymore either. Still do some edits, but most are easier to go back to cam and have them change it in a few clicks of a mouse

Lots of 3D parts, and more than 2 peices that share a part number are few and far between.

Overall, a great shop to work. I run 2 of the bigger VMC's in the shop (the Tree w/ 25x50 table, and a Takumi with a 40 x 70 table), do most of the welding (Miller 200, 350P, and a Lincoln Tig Welder), and a few other things. Also have full access to a 36" Blanchard grinder, a fully automatic surface grinder. Great shop with a great owner who doesn't mind guys working on personal projects- and I've done my fair share and then some... I've done some fairly large projects in the shop.
