Most guys know I quit my day job to do my day job now for myself… I’ve been growing faster than I expected, so I finally got a balancer for in my shop. I balance/machine stuff.
Heres a picture of it, It wasn’t cheap, I was sick to my stomach once I sent the money..
it can balance crankshafts, flywheels, anything that spins!

That is what your squareback turned into.AndymParticipantJanuary 8, 2018 at 6:51 pmPost count: 944
Not yet franz, I still got it. I got my eye on 2 other pieces of equipment if it goes. I jinxed myself with the Japan talk.
If anyone on here needs some balancing, I’ll help ya. Pressure plates are the worst, even factory balanced.

Just paid my material handler off!Fuchs Mh-350 . Now I am looking for a used 325 series Cat excavator with an hydraulic thumb for demo work. The Fuchs is great for loading/unloading but not to good for tearing chit up! A track hoe is much more effective. Our old one died and I have to get it a replacement. It always seems when you get rid of one payment another will start shortly! 😉AndymParticipantJanuary 24, 2018 at 9:02 amPost count: 944
I work on some Terex machines here, but they are for hardpan/road grinding.
A lot of new farm equipment is going away from drive shafts/gear boxes to hydro. But hydro takes a shit load of HP to keep the load going.. it’s a 50/50 on if you like it or not.

I’ve always thought a water jet cutter would be awesome!!!!! But… I would rarely use it..AndymParticipantSeptember 4, 2018 at 7:53 amPost count: 944
Well I finally did it. Just waiting the 4 weeks build time then it will be here. Cnc plasma table. There’s a million uses, I know I’ll use it for car stuff, but my balancing business will be able to expand and offer some more stuff now too.
