    Hanix Mini Giant excavator?

    Yesterday (Wednesday) I found a notice on the front door from the UPS guy that he tried to deliver a package and we weren't home. We were told to expect a package of documents from the lawyer, so we figured that must be what it was. Today (Thursday) they dellvered the package. It was the...

    Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers

    The huge aerospace plant I worked at had dozens of fire extinguishers stored outside on equipment pads, electrical substations, LN2 pads, fenced enclosures for materials, chemicals, and such. After finding some plugged by dirt daubers, we bought a selection of small corks and corked them all...

    Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers

    People tend to forget fire extinguishers completely, even when they need them. I was driving up I-17, climbing out of Black Canyon City, and came across an old hippy type driving an old VW bus. He had just pulled over because smoke was pouring out of the engine bay. He was running around trying...

    Older B6000 namely I think 73-77

    My B7100 has a drain plug on the side of the box, but it was so dirty that it was hard to find at first. Maybe yours is the same? #27 in the view below. When I drained it, I got a little water out, then just oil. No apparent damage luckily. Filled it with 85w-140w gear oil through fill plug, #14.

    Thanks! But a new plan has emerged. Today I found that the drive sprockets are still available in England! Started to order one, but after seeing the difference in the tooth profile when new, and what mine look like with all that wear, I ordered two. (those steel tracks were a serious mistake)...

    OK, the 3/4" drive breaker worked; 3/4 reduced to 1/2, reduced to 3/8, reduced to 8mm. The cap screws are loose, but other duties pulled me off the job again before further progress. On the upside, I now have a plan. Rather than weld/reshape the broken sprocket, I am planning to make an...
