  • @#$%!^*+ arghhhhhhhhhhhh

    The front frame work that the pillow blocks supporting the table torque tube let go.

    My options:

    1. Replace framework
    2. Replace front assy. complete with table
    3. Take table and torque tube out and have it welded by a professional
    4. Quit and take a job cutting grass at a local country club
    5. Quit and move to Cali. and work as Deadwoods "b" tech.

    Please vote and help me decide.

    If you are talking about breaking a welded seam above a pillow block, you have other options:

    1. Quick and dirty -- block up the broken box beam and use threaded 3/8in rod in place of pillow block mounting bolts by drilling holes through the bottom of the wire channel.

    2. Slower and not so dirty -- With box beam blocked up to close the broken weld and scoring disconnected for at least 2 pair on each side (more is better), thoroughly clean the split seam and establish a ground connection real close to the site to be repaired. Call in a professional welder.

    When we had this problem, we selected option two and the results have been excellent so far.

    Good Luck Roger

      Well, as another option, if you know anyone with a portable MIG or stick welder...

      Prop the deck on crates or blocks, drop the pillow blocks & rods.
      Cover the deck and kickbacks with plastic and a damp canvas dropcloth. Jack the crossbeam back up where it belongs (grind off any loose/broken weld first), reburn and lap the broken welds. Good as new. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

        If I were you, I'd go with #4. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] :p

        But, if you wanna stay in the biz a little while longer and see what it's like serving Pizza and Coke....I think that having it welded back together should hold ya. Actually the best way would be to do Ar Rar's #1 and your #3. Or if you have a welder and are confident in your welding skills, do Gman's 1 and only + Ar Rar's #1. I'd stay away from #5, as Deadwood would work you too hard. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

        Man, what do I do with all these chads in my lap? [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] :p

          Welding sounds like the best bet. That happened at a center I worked at a few years ago. I rested the table on a bucket which brought the loose frame metal back up into place. Then the boss brought in some welding guy who took it from there and its been fine since. Didn't need to disassemble a damn thing, guess you may not be so lucky depending on where the separation happened.
          We also didn't have scoring, so Ar Rar's suggestions about it's safety sound pretty good.
          Or, if you choose to just arc away without isolating the scoring, I'll be glad to come out and put a Matrix system in for you...

                        Does Deadwood really work? Do what El Crudo says. Pull the front end and have it welded. Good luck Jerry.

                            I have a 110 buzz box that will weld up to 100 amps. I set it on the catwalk and plug into the RS drop cord. Wallmart sells 1/16 &amp; 5/64ths. 7014 rod. I would weld a gusset where there is room. I have done many repair jobs similar to this. Needless to say, cover everything around and under with very moist large rags.
                            Yeah but, We've always done it that way.
