Axles are generally left with cars and trucks.
That's because an axle transfers energy to more than one place by means of gears and cogs, like to a pair of driving wheels at right angles to the power direction..
What you refer to are spindles, prop shafts and other things.
For the sake of simplicity, the seals you speak of are made of rubber rings held by metal bands around the spindle squeezed very tight with oil trapped around the joint. That keeps the water out most of the time.
In bigger machines, the oil seal is often made from a tough kind of leather (true !) ...leather is a really good water proof material under heavy pressure and heat providing it's kept "wet" by oils or waters.
Blenders spindles tend to use rubber "O" rings around the shaft because there's not much pressure, it's enough to keep your milkshake from leaking into the blender.
Hi, my wife and I purchased the Health master blender about 6yrs ago. I recently noticed that the liquid was leaking from the bottom of the container. The blade is totally loose. How can I tighten it if at al?
It leaks if you over tighten it. So try to just do it finger tight. I was having the same problem, once I eased off on the tighten if stop leaking. I assume you are getting it correctly aligned as that can be the other issue.
Try tightening the ring by (unplugged), align and tighten the base ring, rubber touching glass, then the blade plate assembly, then the ring....Then place on the machine, press down and tighten more...
I find that you cannot sometimes get enough tighening by hand, due to the dimention of the ring and the human hand...
Hey, I know this is an old thread but just had the same problem and solved it. With the blender container upside down, place the gasket on the jar hole, put the blade through the hole on top of the gasket, then screw the plastic base on top of that.
The way I had done it before was to pop the blade into the bottom of the plastic base first then screw it onto the gasket and jar but it goes on the gasket, not under the bottom of the base. Hope that helps anyone else in the future.
Also just read the manual instructions like I didn't, clear as day right there but I never bothered to read them ha
Mine also leaked from day 1. I just read in the manual to first place the bottom and blade assembly on the counter, then seat the gasket around the blade assembly, making sure it is just under the lip of the blade piece (careful, you have to maneuver around the blades). Then place the jar on the assembly and screw in tightly. This worked and I have no more leaks. This is different than other blenders where you place the gasket on the jar and then attach the bottom. It is a poor design, but after what I paid for it, I am glad to be able to use it and not just trash it.
