    Good morning :pccoffee:
    I enjoyed the movie. Was thinking on my drive into work this morning, if we had alien visitors, well...that would be everyone's worst nightmare, any kind of not friendly alien, especially a real nasty looking one...with lots of teeth.

    Yes, higher up where the coating didn't reach. Possibly a poor job of applying the stuff but also just as far as they go with application.
    The old Ford my grandfather had all those years did develop a small rust spot up high like that but they had it repaired free. Deal was though, I think you had to take the vehicle in yearly for inspection and touch up. So basically keep a truck 20 years $100.00 a year paid the repair bill. Who knows, I still think it helps.
    The areas on my wifes truck that need attention are the bottom of rear leaf spring plate where gravel roads have knocked all the coating off.

    In lieu of our glorious leader, I'll post some pictures of my hydraulic adventures today. This has been a four day saga now, we finally said f*ck it and pulled the whole pump and motor unit. 432258F3-321D-4C15-B445-44B3F0443376.jpg

    on edit: we pulled the filters, here's what came out of one.9F64D04E-03BE-44AB-B2B1-8E22C6A55E36.jpg

    That should help pump performance greatly. Wonder what the reservoir looks like, possibly time for drain, clean and fresh fluid?

    Years ago working night shift a boss came to me, someone had told him I could weld -- yeah, right.

    I taught :laugh: myself with a 120 volt stick job that looked like (and worked as well as) a battery charger.

    Naturally (being young, dumb and wanting to impress the boss) I said "sure!" BTW: I was just a worker, there was a shift "Mechanic" but he couldn't weld.

    Down in the Utilities shop I am faced with the same Migmaster 250 in your picture. There was no youtube back then and I had only read about Mig welders, never actually seen one. I turned the gas on (knew that much) and went to it - the machine was set on medium 5.
    I welded the bracket and took it to the boss, he was pleased and I became his welding guy. :boom:Since I only had a hazy understanding of how the machine worked, every time I set it to medium 5 (didn't claim to be swift). Eventually I graduated to a Mechanic position and did more welding, one day someone had left a birds nest of wire in the feed, I open the cover to investigate:
    :annoyed:there is a chart with the settings under the cover :annoyed:...

    Reading your post, I looked back at his photo to see the welder. I just now realized that, not only does ESAB make a welder; but, I have never seen an ESAB welder before.

    How common they are probably depends on what the local distributors carry, very popular around here.

    ESAB is a world wide company, that Migmaster or the same machine branded as L-TEC is (maybe was) the Ford F-250 of factory shop welders. The machine I was referring to was purchased in the late 80's.

    My last job we had the same machine, purchased in the late 90's. Great machine, maybe I will score one at an auction some day.

    Right. As part of my job at Fastenal, I purchase weld wire from ESAB for a customer of ours. I figured it was a private labeled welder made by someone else; I had just never seen an ESAB welder before or knew they offered them. I have worked in weld shops before and have only ever seen Miller or Lincoln welders.

    Morning all!

    we have one of those ESABs at our shop, it’s disliked among our welding crew. I heard the high frequency start for stainless wasn’t very smooth. It sits in a corner for the most part.

    Update on the tank situation. Our vendors were able to source replacement pumps, but they're two days out. The exact pump from the original company is a 16-20 week lead time, so that's definitely not happening. Flushed the old pumps, put new filters on and new fluid in the tank. About to put it back together and hope for the best for the next two days.

    Looks like the filters were doing their job, and beyond. I think those pumps will still be ok but surely not like new.
    :fingerscrossed:
    Good share and keeping this going. I've a real simple machining set up about to go so I'll throw that up shortly.

    Well, the entire reason we pulled this out was because this hydraulic unit powers some feed roll cylinders on one of our sawing machines. One set of cylinders was acting very laggy and slow. One of the two pumps attached to this motor sounded like marbles in a blender when activated, but it's been sounding that way for months supposedly (before I started at this location). We swapped valves, replaced cylinders, tried everything without having to pull this apart. Finally the only thing left is the pump, so here we are. And when I pulled those filters off, the smell of burnt hydraulic filled the shop.

    I guess the point of that explanation, is that the pumps are toast, but not fully cooked yet.

    According to the site supervisor, this hasn't been apart since he's been here. (Nearly 5 years) and this unit runs 10 hours a day five days a week.
