I just grabbed one of those too, was on sale for 38 I think at direct tools.When we built the greenhouse we wore out the T50 staple gun that I've had for ages.
Today I ordered a Ryobi One+ battery T50 stapler for $80.
i prefer the freestanding ones in case i bring a tool outside or something for more clearance, and they tend to be more powerful. That said, any dust collection is good dust collection.
make sure you got enough velcro, old sport.Continuing on replacing old outlets.
I get to one where a chunk of the bottom of the box is missing, they used a drywall screw to half ass the outlet into the stud.
3 Romex in the box. Back stabbed into the outlet.
I’m out of old work boxes. I’ll pick one up, cut out and replace the fucked one and pigtail the wires.
I did almost the same thing for my furnace motor (6203 + 1/2" shaft). I ended up having a bushing cut for the shaft of the motor, and then pressing the bushing + bearing together.Bought four 6203 bearings, pop into the fab shop this morning to press them into the spindle on the mower... got a problem.
#1, the blade side bore takes a 35mm OD bearing, not a 40mm OD bearing.
#2, the shaft is 16mm, so both IDs have to be 16mm.
So the mower actually takes a 6202-16 (on the blade side) and a 6203-16 (on the pulley side). I can buy a 6202-2RS-16 for the small end at Princess Auto, but I'm having a heck of a time finding a 6203-2RS-16, at least for a reasonable price. Even McMaster-Carr doesn't sell them.
Probably gonna make a bushing so I can drop a 6202-16 in place of the 6203-16.
Alternative is making a 0.5mm thick bushing that lets me put the 6203 in place of the 6203-16, aka "put the shaft in there, center it as best as I can and tack weld it"
Let me know how that works, in case I have to go that route in the future.Doing the four 6202-2RS-16's and outside bushing approach.
We didn't have any suitable material in the machine shop to lathe off a bushing, so I'm trying one out in Alloy 910.
