Okay, that is cool. Whereas I’ve seen of us widen their very own metal wheels on a number of movies, the method normally includes a big lathe or some severely sketchy stuff. This one appears approach much less sketchy than these and doesn’t require an enormous costly lathe. Earlier than any of you OSHA inspectors on the market begin speaking about how it’s unhealthy to alter wheels, weld on wheels, or what have you ever, know that we’re simply sharing a cool video of a machine we predict is neat and would possibly strive on our personal. If you wish to do the identical, that’s on you.
You probably have the flexibility to weld and to measure comparatively precisely, you can also make this little rig proper right here. And because it makes use of a 4.5 inch angle grinder it’s one thing that anybody considering of doing this could have of their store anyway. And the electrical motor that he makes use of, together with the drive meeting, signifies that you should use this similar machine to weld the wheels again collectively, it isn’t only for reducing them aside.
The machine may be very useful in making the widening of metal wheels, for the drive I used an electrical motor with a gear, the engine pace was moreover lowered in order that it was potential to weld not solely with the mig technique but in addition with the tig technique. With such a widening of the wheels, work have to be achieved very fastidiously, with out haste, weld with excessive present to carry out remelting. The wheel that I widened is far more durable to widen than the common wheel, however due to the rollers, I managed to make this wheel completely, the rollers assist to middle and align the wheel axis.
