Welding Secrets second Version by Hal Wilson
I’ve seen numerous welds in my life. I’ve seen them on new merchandise and on restore jobs. The number of welds I’ve seen recently is sufficient to persuade me that some individuals nonetheless do not know the place to not weld. On this guide I’ve tried to assist these of you who will go on welding a very long time after I’m gone. I’ve tried as an example as clearly as I understand how in phrases and in photos among the locations that shouldn’t be welded.
I ‘ye additionally included some ideas that can enable you do a greater, safer job in locations that needs to be welded. I hope this guide will enable you be a greater welder. The data in it -gathered the arduous method over 49 years -has definitely helped me.
How To Take away A Dangerous Bearing Race Or Cup From A Gap
If the race or cup is unhealthy, it is going to be discarded as scrap. Take your arc welder and thoroughly run a bead across the middle of the race, preserving it within the middle to forestall drifting off to the opposite floor. After cooling, it’ll have loosened sufficient to fallout. The above race was 4 7/16 inches in diameter earlier than it was welded. After it cooled it was 7 thousandths of an inch smaller in diameter.
Change New Race
A straightforward strategy to change the unhealthy race with a brand new one is to position the brand new race within the freezing compartment of a fridge and freeze it earlier than inserting it. Deal with it with gloves. Often, a race will flip within the gap and put on the opening out too huge. If an inner knurling software is unavailable, ta-ke a middle punch and a hammer and make middle punch marks all the way in which across the complete floor that’s free.
The quantity of damage or looseness determines how arduous you will need to hit the middle punch. When a chunk of gentle metal is hit arduous sufficient to make an indentation, the encircling metallic swells outwardly.
How To Construct Up A Worn Shaft
First, flip the worn half off in a lathe. Then, preheat it with a torch to about 250°. Have the shaft in a set of rollers so you may flip it back and forth. Weld a bead on the highest aspect. Flip the shaft a half-turn so the brand new bead is on the underside.
Then weld a bead on the brand new prime aspect precisely reverse the primary bead. Flip the highest of the shaft barely towards you to make the aspect of your second bead stage. (See Determine 2) Then run one other bead overlapping to the middle of the second bead. Flip the shaft again over to the primary bead and run one other bead overlapping the middle of the primary bead.
You need not knock the flux off. After the second and third beads, flip the shaft after every bead to the opposite aspect. On the final two beads, weave the rod back and forth to overlap the primary and final beads on that aspect. Fig. 4 exhibits a built-up shaft. It’s arduous to imagine how a lot pressure is on these welds. They’re truly squeezing so arduous that the shaft adjoining the welds is compressed to a smaller diameter.
I by no means gave it a thought till I had a shaft break off on the finish of the welds. Due to this fact, you must all the time stress relieve the welds. As quickly as you end welding, take your acetylene torch and warmth the welds to a purple warmth. Flip the shaft and warmth evenly. Maintain the warmth on it and provides it time to get purple to the middle of the shaft.
To show some extent, I turned the welds down on a lathe, to the unique measurement, freely slipped the bearing race on to the opposite finish of the shaft, stress relieved the top that was welded, and let it cool. When it was co~d, it was 3 thousandths bigger in diameter than it was earlier than I stress relieved it. The bearing race wouldn’t come off. I pressed it a part of the way in which off. You possibly can see the place I finished. Then pressed it again on.
