1)try replacing them with a heavy duty "roll-pin"
these are available from auto parts stores.
two types are available.
first is the "single-roll",second is the"multi-rolled"with many layers to it.

try both they're cheap.

2)try not hitting things with the blades
3)dont force the machine in heavy wet ,or frozen icy packed snow.

How to remove forend & barrel

Need more info to be precise. With most break action shot guns, open the action, pull the forend out away from the barrel (unless you see a screw, then remove the screw) then tip up the barrel and it will come up and out of the receiver. If this does not help you out, repost with more info such as, make and model, even year of manf.

How to build a backyard igloo!

Backyard igloos are easy and fun for kids. You don't need a large amount of snow, either. A few inches can be shoveled into a pile that's large enough for a kid to crawl into, but you need to be careful to make sure that you make it strong enough that it won't collapse easily.

Start out by piling the snow a couple feet high. Three feet is about as small as you can go, but that works well for most kids. It can be as big as you want, though.

After you pile it up, use a watering can to sprinkle the outside with water. It should be cold water, since hot water will melt the snow more than necessary. Make sure you cover the entire outside of the snow pile. The water is the key to making it strong.

Wait overnight for the water to freeze, and then use a shovel to scoop out the snow on the inside. Make a hole in one side with the shovel, and then carefully shave off the snow on the inside until you are close to the edge.

That's it! If the kids want, they can scrape out the snow on the inside with toy shovels, too. Overall time to do a small one this way is just an hour or so, not counting the overnight freeze.

Lowering a boulevard

It can indeed! I actually just installed a 3" lowering kit on my boulevard M50. If you go to he sells lowering kits for just 35 bucks! I was able to install the kit in about an hour with an assistant.
Just in case you do end up getting the M50 and the lowering kit, here are a few things I'd like to clarify when installing the kit. There were a few minor technique issues we ran into.
The directions say to break loose the head of the bolts, but I recommend breaking loose the nuts on the other side. You will know what I mean when you are installing. The nuts have more surface area for the sockets to grab. The head of the screws don't offer much.
Another tip, when you have the nuts off the bolts, the directions say to take the weight off the rear wheel. Technically there is zero weight on the rear wheel when it has been jacked up into the air. The directions really meant to take the weight of the wheel off the swingarm by having your assistant or your wife or neighbor come over and try to lift the wheel up a little bit. The bolts will just slide around freely once you do that.
Anyways, to answer the original question again, offers a 3" lowering kit for the M50. This allows shorter riders to reach the ground a bit easier at stop lights, etc. For me, I just thought it'd made the bike look way cooler lol!
Hope that helped you out!

Craftsman snow blower wheels wont move. Help!

If it is a 5.5 HP dual stage, like mine, it could be that the belt has popped off the friction pulley. If you drain the gas, tip the unit on its "face" and remove the large shield on the bottom you will see a 3" pulley attached to the drive shaft. There will also be what looks like a fan belt floating around in there. That fan belt nees to go on the pullet, as it serves as the friction disk tio drive the wheels. Good luck. this happens to mine ALL the time. very frustrating. :(

Installing a ferrel on the shaft prior to club assembly will strengthen the shaft at this vunerable point. Your swing might be a bit steep at impact and this puts tremendous stress on the shaft.

My daisy model 99 bb gun does not shoot bb's with any force.

Try shooting a ton of silicone oil into the oil hole on the side of the barrel and then leave the gun sitting on its muzzle over night, then in the morning with the barrel out dry fire it a couple of times and then try it. what this does is expand the leather seal and bring back air pressure. it worked on my 99, good luck

Penn Spin Reel will not lock after casting

On the front of the spool there is a device to turn to set the drag. Torn it tighter and tighten it until slightly below the breaking point of your fishing line. It isn't a critical adjustment, it just keeps your line from breaking while trying to land a fish.
