I recently picked up a wood chipper/ shredder from a friend of mine.
Actually he gave it to me. If I could get it running we'd share it! Well it
was nothing that a carburetor kit couldn't fix.
Looking at the shredder tines I found that the leading edges are rounded off
and two of the tines are broken off. Luckily they are apposing each other
and it is still in balance well enough.
I searched for the manufacture to no avail. It was made by W.W.Grinder Inc.
out of Wichita Kansas. What numbers I did find were disconnected.
I have a Lincoln wire feed welder. I'm wondering if I can weld on some bar
stock to replace the missing tines? I 'm also thinking of welding the
rounded ends and re sharpening them.
Do you think that will hold up?
Should they be hardend?
Any help is greatly appreciated,
