  1. Hi, I was recently lucky enough to purchase a Champion 400 blower and Whirlwind firepot at auction. Both are in great shape, having just the usual rust, dirt, grease, etc. I do however need to make two adjustments to the blower. I've researched everything on the 400 on this site and others but can't seem to figure out the answer. Adjustment 1: I assume since the brass gear is concave on the working part that it should set directly above the worm gear. Mine is off toward the inside so that only the outside of the brass gear is touching. When looking down from the top, I can see a
  2. In the process of reassembling my Champion No. 400 forge blower after tearing it down and cleaning it up, I managed to mess up the end of the large gear shaft and now I can't thread the cone nut on to it. Does anyone happen to have a spare gear shaft (the one that is 7" long that the large gear fits on to) that they would be willing to sell? I was hoping someone had a Champion 400 in bad shape that they scavenged parts out of. I checked eBay and there is nothing there. I took it to a machine shop and he said that cutting 1/4 to 1/2 inches off the end was the only option. Not sure tha
  3. I have a Champion 400 blower that is in need of an overhaul and I need a little advice on part of the tear down. I've got everything disassembled except for the bronze worm gear. I can't seem to figure out exactly how it comes out of the housing. I've removed the square head screw holding the gear to the shaft, but my problem is that I can't see how to pull the shaft. It looks like there are two plugs on either side of the housing (under the bearing caps) that may come out with a spanner wrench of some sort (threaded in?), or maybe I need to jack one side out using the tapped holes. Fo
  4. Today I want to share with you all the forge that I constructed from scrap lumber, steel fence-posts and wire mesh, all found around my house. The screws were mostly extras that my dad had laying around, and everything was done with minimal tools. I want to show what CAN be done, and that you don't have to go fancy to make beautiful artwork. First of all, after I first bought my Champion 400 blower and Whirlwind Firepot, I knew I needed a place to put them, so that I could forge efficiently. This was my original set up. I did work like this for about 6 or 7 months, which was a real drag. T
  5. After many months of searching craigslist, asking about this forge or that on IFI, and dreaming constantly, I have finally found a forge. It is now in my posession for only $125. I am the proud new owner of a 12" Champion 400 blower and a Whirlwind firepot! I am having some difficulties though, and after fruitlessly looking through the old posts about fixing 400 blowers and firepots, I turn to you all. The blower makes a rattling sound, but I think it is just the fan blades scraping ever so slightly against the housing. I'm going to try and adjust that. THe big problem with the blower
