Cheyenne Culpepper 32827

Fixed my Dillon case vibrator for $3.50

Recommended Posts

I got tired of nursing one of the bearings in the motor so I finally took it apart again and took the armature and bearings attached to my electric motor rebuild place. They gave me two bearings, I only used one, for $7.

 

Brought them home and put it back together and now it's humming right along.

 

and now I've got an extra bearing, that way I'll never need it...

That's not how Murrphy works for me

 

Within a few days the old bearing goes bad and I'll break something unrepairable trying to replace the bearing

 

Or a few years later the old beating goes out and I can't find the spare

 

So now I replace would both at the same time

I'm 65 and still haven't mastered that method.

I've got an ancient electric lawn mower that's Code Blued on me several times. A little head scratching, internetting, $0.56 for a small part ($5.50 S&H), a little elbow grease, cussing and blood, and voila! Frankenmower rides again!

 

Good on yah, CC! Us cheap bastahs gotta stick together!

we had a FlyMo mower when I was a teen, NO wheels, oh and it was designed that way. pretty neat, just hovered and cut, forward sideways, where ever you pushed it. left a nice little furrow, like a hay rake.

I've noticed more and more modern designs are being engineered to prevent maintenance fixes. They want you to throw out the old and buy new. Bastards. Keep the old stuff going - you'll be dollars ahead.

Plum proud of you Cheyenne, NEVER buy something IF you can repair it. My wife hates me ( I mean all my junk I got laying around). My problem is getting some of them "around - to- it's". Oh well I'm rich with as much stuff as I have laying around. My wife's favorite quote" When are you going to throw some of that stuff away? "

My answer is of course "might need it ".

CHEAP is the way to go ! (Unless we're talking guns or gear)

I usually keep stuff for years, then throw it away two weeks before I need it!

I have always bought cars that I could drive until they died.

 

Made a mistake. Got Toyota Trucks with the R22 engine.

Now my new one is a 1988 and my oldest a 1985.

All run well at 22 to 24 miles to the gallon.

Never let me down.

I only put oil in the when the light comes on.

Change the oil every two years along with filters and plugs.

Now the inside dash plastic is disenigrating.

I can't find replacements.

But these trucks still run as they did when I bought the.

I know I can sell these old trucks in a few days. They are in high demand.

Repairs...Ihave had to put a water pump in one and a muffler on one of the others.

Oh reference.

They have between 78,000 and 380,500 miles.

I know. I put the miles on them.

 

Not sure what to do.

Get a newer vehicle?

Which one..s should I look at.

Hey Pretty Boy, Sounds like you have a good future in small electronic motor repairs. I'd like to be your first customer.

I've got a RCBS tumbler that just started acting up. I'll box it up and get it ready for shipment......how's $4.00 sound:) haha.
