* 5 minute Job!

Posted on July 29th, 2015 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

Nothing is ever a 5 minute Job!


Above is the pulley from A TEF-20. It’s the pulley from my TEF-20. I took it off the dynamo so that I could get the 3 veins on the back turned down to take a ring for the Karden arm of the tractor hours meter to rub against.

When I removed the pulley from the dynamo I wondered how it was ever holding in place and managing to not slip. The inside was completely hollowed out where the woodruff key had spun around inside removing all the material. So after drilling and boring the inside out, making a press fit bush, with a keyway, then testing I am now ready to start the job I originally wanted to complete.

It was at this point I realised I didn’t have any bar greater than 2″ diameter so I had to get hold of some. My usual supplier doesn’t do offcuts so I asked around and found the most amazing model engineering suppliers less than 2 miles from where I work.

Blackgates Engineering supply material in 1foot lengths and they had loads of offcuts of various sizes. I had a great chat with Phil on the counter about various projects. I will definitely be back.

So I now have plenty of round bar to make things from!
