Pump forge

Recommended Posts

I just got a pump forge when I took the blower apart I discovered that the blower shaft is rusted apart, does anyone know how I might be able to get this back in working ordered?

Welcome to IFI... Have you read this yet? It will help you get the best out of the forum like editing your profile to show location. READ THIS FIRST

Is it the shaft that the blower pulley is mounted to or the main shaft for the large belt pulley that looks like it's held on with bailing wire?

I have resurrected several shafts by grinding the rust away then welding it up and machining back to size. Without seeing the shaft, I don't know if that would work though. Finding a replacement shaft will be like looking for hens teeth.

get it apart then look for a local member here who has a metal lathe.. or if you can forge up a new one and hand finish it.. 

the options really are endless, where there is a will, there is a way.. 

If you were closer I'd be happy to help..

Does anyone know how to go about rebuilding the shaft for this blower?

Like you were told in the thread about the forge, you will have to machine or forge a new shaft & hand fit it.

If you were to edit your profile to show your location, you might be surprised to find a member near you and if you join a blacksmith club near you there are probably members who could make a shaft for you.
