Good morning Brett how many chords do you think you will go through this yearGood morning everyone .
61 here warming to 86 . with a slight chance of showers and that increasing into tomorrow and Sunday, its coming from BL.
Got another bucket split last night, at this rate I should have one side of the woodshed filled by spring . Depending on the weather later I may get another bucket done today.
Hope you guys have a great day.
Do you ring test the wheel before installation?View attachment 760772
Good morn folks. Last really hot day at 88/89 & humid. New wheel I bought for the 511AX literally exploded, not sure what happened.
I double checked the fitting before I set the hex screw to make sure the wheel would be balanced correctly. Maybe something going on with
the motor or shaft; out of $40
Where do you folks buy your grinding wheels from?
thanks cheeves - hope your day goes well today. the shoe goo repair dint really matter when the water is flowing into boot and 2" over the top! lolGood Going BL!! 10% of the people do 90% of the work.

thanks Farmer Steve. imo, I have been lucky with several things during my tenure down here in the Lone Star State:good morning. 49*/clear. happy national pepperoni pizza day. gonna finish some bush hoggin and maybe some weed and bug spraying later. weather guesser said some parts of TX got 40" of rain. If it was snow it would have been 33 feet. hope your ok @Backyard Lumberjack. have a great day gang. FS.
Thanks for the vidDo you ring test the wheel before installation?
Why the SOS?
a call for help! thought some of you here might rush on down and lend me a hand... I was out of beer! by end of Wed, and din't want to get out in all the rains and water Thursday...Was wondering the same thing myself
hi SA - seems u escaped the danger of that wheel exploding. $40 is nothing compared to what could have....Thanks for the vid I did not. The small diameter of the wheel would require some extra gentle taps though or you're bound to put some cracks in yourself. I did look to see if it was true however. I guess I'm either going to buy another OEM Oregon wheel or go with the more expensive CBN wheel which evidently outlasts the OEM by thousands of uses.
No glasses but the 511AX has a good deal of plastic around the spinning wheel. Probably should wear glasses regardless.hi SA - seems u escaped the danger of that wheel exploding. $40 is nothing compared to what could have....
did u have safety shield or goggles on? I know I am guilty of just flipping the ON switch, kissing the part... and getting back to the project at hand. and now safety googles. my dad showed my brother and I how to use a bench grinder many moons ago. how to move part across face of wheel, for example to have even wear. and not to grind on the side of the wheel. can promote an explosion...
I am guilty of that, too! but... your and ray's post will entice me to be a bit more diligent ie, shop safety when turning on my grinders and wire wheels...
glad u were ok, man!
ps: am going to ck my wheels...
