hopefully will get it out over the weekend
Anyone know how /if it’s possible to get the pins out from the plug in the pic . Loose wire in one of the pins and can’t afford to break the plug . It works most of the time .
i think this is it
There are so many of those tools for different applications it is a pure nuisance and yet without the right tool there is the risk of doing damage.
As said , go onto this website . https://ie.rs-online.com/mobile/p/industrial-automation-circular-connectors/6806788/
That’s prob the connector. @Skimmer be the man on the connecters. But should be fairly simple to take out a damaged pin and re crimp a new one
@towbar is right, it is simply a light walled "tube" that releases the latches on the pins for those type of connectors. If you have an old radio or RC toy car etc, with a telescopic antenna, simply cut the bottom off the large section, the top off the small section, and you should have a selection of suitable size tubes to release those pins!!!!!!! That's what I did when I was caught out over Christmas without the right size tool!!!!
Thinking of putting a horn (a beep beeep one that is!) on the quad.
Current plan is to get power from the back of the 12v fag lighter style socket.
Should I run some form of fuse in the line or should the fuse for the socket be enough??
If so how do I decide on fuse size?
That's coming together nicely, thanks for showing us, Inspiration for a similar project here
No they both serve a different purpose. Rock spike as the name suggests is a real advantage in stone ground to get you a starting hole for the post . Wouldn’t want to have to use it for every post . Use a crobar here for that job .
Bigger weight just speeds up and increases the power you have to drive the post . Bigger weight can be used to drive a post lightly if necessary but a light weight can’t be made to pound a post heavier.
Would have a mixture of everything here . Hardest place I drove posts last year had peat on one side and a ft of sand on the other . Had to dig through the sand to drive the strainers as it just packed in front of the point of the strainers . On stoney ground i use a crobar. If you can make a hole 2ft deep and only 3 or 4” wide with a crobar the post driver should get the post knocked in . No need to go mad swinging off the bar trying to make a wide hole .
Yea there's more work to it than you would think. Look at a few first to get ideas on different features
A bit more progress on the QA headstock for the loader its all just held together with the clamps wasnt too hard to line it up. If had of measured it at start and kept the inner plates a bit closer centre i would have been able to use it for the bottom to rest against and hold locking pin .
I think this forker has been working out!
I will give him €15 an hour to come picking stones and he can have the yacht for a week in the off season.
Is that known as Triggers fork, put up another picture when there is a shine on the prongs !!
I have used one with 8 tines on it to grape lawn cuttings out of a trailer. It was two worn ones welded together. I don't think it would work as well if it was two new ones as the tines would be to long.
They are two old und combined alrite. Although one was barely a week old when the handle was bent!
It's for clearing out small lambing pens.
They are done after every ewe so the straw is bulky but light, and as we have very fine straw thid year something was needed to up productivity!! Couldn't get much on a standard 4-pronger!
Works well too!
snapped the loader cable and I notice the qtp ones are different but look like they will do the same job - maybe even better, - anyone used these
mine is the type shown in picture - the new ones look like they cant slip up or down which is a good thing!
Just to close this off bought new genuine this morning €125 but it’s an important component so not worth taking a chance with it. You can’t easily change to the newer type either as you would have to change both cables on joystick as the cable stroke needs to be the same on each cable. At least the new one has better formed grooves for snap ring.
i put a spurious cable on the quicke here and it was never as good as the genuine one, i ended up throwing it off and getting a quicke cable
What did you fill it with
I filled it with a few old cart axles old digger pins and bits and bobs of off cuts and old bolts anything I could find. I had some old lead lying around melted that and filled some of the voids the rest of the gaps were filled with sand. Its heavy !
