I'm trying to fix an old cement mixer. I need either some washers with a 1" hole, or a spacer/collar that has the same opening. Where would I look for these things? Local NAPA? Ace? I would like grade five or eight.
And I need to weld cast to steel. Should I just buzz it with 7018, or get some Ni rod and do the preheat and postheat and all that? This won't be taking a lot of stress, just keeping a shaft in line, replacing a wallowed shaft tunnel.
And I have a 13" aluminum pulley that has a one inch hole. It is cracked along two of the legs, and looks like it will break off any time. Because the shaft is so wallowed, I want to buy a steel pulley, and tack it on in line so that it doesn't wobble like the current one does. Any sources? Gonna look locally in the next couple of days.
