  1. Haha thanks, love the illustrations & way you explained it... I know someone that has a metal lathe, so if it gets to where it doesn't turn very good ill try making a bushing, nut and/or shaft for it. This is the first time Ive ever cranked one so I wasn't sure how tight they should be, and also I didn't know it was that old. So the Buffalo forge company went out of business some 70 yrs ago? Thanks a ton for helping me and with the super quick responses.

  5. Yes Mr. Better it does work I was hoping to make cranking it a little easier if I could. I didn't realize it was so old. I opened it up and the fanblade shaft actually has been rigged b4. It seems like it used to have a large screw in bearing or bushing that's missing and been replaced by a nut that slides over shaft and has Allen screws tapped in its side to tighten itself up against a washer that serves as a bushing for shaft. If I remove that nut all together the shaft will bind by moving to the side. I'll video and try to YouTube it (live never uploaded b4) and reply again. Thanks for your help guys.
  6. I bought an old Buffalo "Climax" hand crank blower (atleast 20yrs old) that needs repair. The shaft that fan blades mount to is loose. It moves side to side. I haven't taken the gear box apart yet but I'm sure it will need a bearing and that shaft replaced atleast. Does anyone know of a website that I can order parts for it? I haven't had any luck finding one. Thanks
  7. I'm building a forge, and since I haven't even seen coal up close yet (or worked a forge) I'm trying to figure how big the opening(s) on the sides of the clinker breaker should be to allow air to pass by. I'm making the triangler cube type that rotates. Is a quarter inch on each side enough when the flat side is up? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
