    Default Hub Repair

    Just want to throw out a little machining content. First picture is the hub with damaged bearing seat, next is the hub bored to accept a sleeve, then the sleeve in the lathe, made from 3" schedule 80 pipe, last is the hub with sleeve and bearing race installed. Safety watchdogs need not worry, the hub fits the wings of a cultivator and will see max speed of 5 mph in the field, will not roll on the road ever.

    ....Looks better than the average farm fix and should work good as new for years to come.

    That looks really good. Thanks for sharing.
    At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.

    It is a farm repair. I occupy my winters in the frozen north with repairs to my machinery. Everything from welding to machining to heavy duty mechanic. It sure beats working for the man. Thanks for the comments

    Not to worry, no complaints from me. That looks a lot better and safe than some of the stuff going down the road.
    Nice fix!

    These kinds of repairs are what has helped keep farmers going. One of the best things you can do with a home shop.

    Great fix and wouldn't be afraid of it even if it was for something like a trailer destined for highway speeds. Probably is a lock tight formula that would insure the bushing stays put..
