  • Saw Broke

    Go figure...I am trying to get a memorial cutting done x4 and the pin that holds the upper blade holder in place breaks, that in it's self is not the bad thing as it would have been an easy fix. But guess what? Sears does not carry that specific pin as it came with the replacement holder and they no longer carry the replacement holder. If I can not find a suitably sized pin to repair my say I will be out of a couple hundred dollars of commission............^%##^&*&#*(*(#%^

    That is messed up. Can't make a pin out of some scrap metal?

      Not sure of what you need but Lowes or Home depote have an assortment of roll pins.
      If not there go to McMaster-Carr
      You should be able to find a suitable pin there with very fast delivery.

          Thanks for the info guys. Rolf it was a solid pin not a roll type.

          What I ended up doing was to call my good friend Micky Mouse while at Lowes, and we decided to give a hinge clip pin a try because I could not find anything except that, which came close to the proper diameter. So after spending 76 cents and about 3 dollars in gas I made it home and cut the pin up some, put it into the hole and bent the ends of it a little so it would not slide out. Now I am back to cutting. Then I called Micky back and thanked him for the idea...Man you gotta love the Micky Mouse ideas you come up with to fix things, so the work as good as new......YEAAAAAAaaaaa

            Drill Bit shanks make great pins and they come in decimal sizes so there is a big range of sizes.

              Glade GREAT suggestion never thought of that as an emergency resource. I fortunately have a small metal lathe in my basement so I can make whatever I need.

                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
