Last snow fall, I was using his 10 with the blower to clean up near the garage. Anyways, I picked up a block of wood and bent the body of the blower. This pic is after he started fixing the damage /carnage.image.jpg image.jpg

Might not look like a lot, but it got worse as you went in. Took a while, but we got it straightened out. Only lost one hammer to the process.

He even put new metal on the worn out glides. Thanks for not being mad Bud.

Looks like he took out his anger on the hammer. Glad he's getting it fixed up.

Ryan has learned a valuable life lesson:

 

Never loan out your tools. Even if the guy looks trustworthy.

It's lucky that didn't damage the auger shaft. Better to bend something that's easily straightened. Around here it's 2"rock that is the problem. The grader keeps turning up these rocks from the roadbed when scarifying the road. I try to pitch them all in the woods. It's no fun picking one of those up and getting it wedged in the works.

Looks good, thankfully it was not bearing holders or the gearbox.

Looks like the hammer served it's purpose.

Glad it's fixed, but why should Ryan fix something you messed up! Looks like he needs a bigger hammer!

He wanted to do it more or less on his own. (Afraid Dad would mess it up, I think)

Great blower repair, now to fix the hammer.  I just use the bench grinder to shape a new end on broken hammer handles, drive it in, then add a couple wedges to secure.

Could weld a chunk of steel to the head. Wouldn't break again!

Looks like a really good job of fixing it, even though your favorite antique hammer did suffer a little distress!!     Looks good!        Roger

He should have had the guy who messed it up fix it under his supervision! :smilewink:

 

Looks like he did a really nice job fixing it.  Bet he doesn't loan it out again!
