Question about Tech Solution TS-8000 Cross-Cut Shredder

Open Question

How important is the 2' x 10' plate that hangs and swings on pivots in front of the cutters??

The quarter inch "hinge" broke off one side of the plate and the plate fell off. The shredder works fine otherwise. Should I be concerned?

How do you remove swing arm on a 99 yamaha big bear 350

Easy - take off tires, then caps over axle/castle nuts if you have them.
- take cotter pins and axle nuts off both ends of axle. Right side - remove brake drum, then remove two brake shoes, simple Springs connect them, you can pull apart intact, remove any collars, washers off the axle behind brakes, then there might be 4 bolts and a plate - the other side you can see the bearing. Now - this is important - for. The side with the brakes, take a socket bigger than the threads but size of axle lip - and you place that deep socket (side with brakes!) over the threads (threads will be inside deep socket) lip of socket touches lip of axle about 2-3 inches down - hit that w a hammer and the axle will go out to the left if facing rear of four wheeler. Next - remove brake lines and breather hose for rear end.
There are bolts that attach the rear end to the swing arm (to the right) take them out and maybe the bottom guard for rear end. Then where the rear end attaches to drive shaft tube portion of swing arm there are four bolts - when all that is done you'll be able to remove rear end. Undo top bolt or you might get away w/bottom for shock - next two pivot shaft nuts - big socket like, Allen head in middle - remove nut from pivot shaft (left and right side where swing arm pivots) then takeallAllen head and unscrew two thick bolts that the pivot shaft nuts tighten to our - there's a collar and bearing in there where the bike's swing arms pivot at. I've done it a dozen times - if you have any problems or that wasn't too clear, message me, I'll dig up some tech sheets from a service manual I got on a bike that year - close to same model - same mechanics, Yamaha was pretty universal. I got a 98 & 99 Yamaha 2wd and a 96 Yamaha 3504wd. All pretty easy to work on. I have a swing arm I might get rid of from Florida and a decent rate if yours is done for and you gotta replace. I sell and buy off eBay to keep most of my toys on the trail.Good luck

How would I support a heavy wooden gate over uneven terrain?

You need to go back to the hinges. The is a house near me that has a gated drive that rises sharply from the road. Needless to say a normal hinge system would only allow the gate an opening of a few inches. The hinges on the gate allow all the movement required, it is your problem in reverse, but the answer is the same. That is where you need to get your ironmonger to look.

Trying to reverse door swing on Samsung washer WF405ATPASU/AA

Tony, this is a simple procedure and you just need a medium sized phillips head screwdriver. Start by opening the door and removing the two phillips screws that attach the hinge to the machine. Remove the door by lifting up and out. Next, remove the two screws that that you will now see (previously hidden under the door hinge that you just removed). Now, go to the opposite side and remove the two screws that hold the door latch and pull out the plastic latch insert. Also, remove the two screws located (about 4 inches) above and below the latch insert. Now simply reverse the process by securing the plastic latch on the left side along with the two screws (top and bottom). Before securing the door on the right side, lay it down and remove the screw that is used to hang the door (within a slotted hole on the machine) and move it to the top of the hinge (you will see a hole for it). Now simply hang the door on the right side of the machine, and firmly secure it with the remaining two screws. Your door should move freely and latch securely.

Is there a better diagram showing how to use the 3/8-in filekit than that on the rear of the kit package? I assume the hard/soft plate pivots and the slots on the guide slide down over the chain and bar. ...

The insrtuctions on the back of the package leave a lot to be desired, the combi roller gauge is a very good tool when used correctly, clamp the saw in the centre of the bar in a vice ( be careful not to pinch the chain ) place the roller gauge over the most damaged cutter ( remember you are sharpening into the cutters ) the small arrows in the base of the gauge should face in the direction of the cutting chain, place the gauge onto one of the cutters, place the file onto the rollers, keep the file parallel with the sides of the gauge, count the amount of strokes done to bring the cutter to the correct angle, this is the amount of strokes you will do on all the other cutters,( keep all the cutters the same lenght or it will not cut straight ) you are going to sharpen every other cutter, now turn the machine round and file all the the opposite cutters, the small swivel plate is to lower the depth gauges, hard is for hard wood and does not lower the depth gauge as low as the soft wood setting, place the plate on top of one of the cutters and into the bottom of the cutter in front, file away anything protruding through the selected slot in the plate.

My machine wont always spin out

Most likely it is your motor slide plate that is your culprit. The motor in your washer is designed to pivot back and forth to apply tension on the belt and give you a good fast spin, or sturdy agitate mode. The centrifugal force of the motor operating is what makes it shift from one side to the other.
Unplug the washer..
To fix this you will need to first pop up the top of the washer. The entire top is designed to open like the hood on a car. Between the front panel and the top about 3 inches in from the left and the right sides you will see the face of a spring clip. You need to use a putty knife to depress the clips and lift the front edge of the top. swing the top all the way up and allow it to lean against the wall behind the washer. Be sure it is tipped back enough that it is not gonna swing forward and hit you.

Next you will find two 5/16" screws that hold the front panel in place one on the left side one on the right side. remove them and allow the top of the panel to come forward and lift it off it's retaining clips at the bottom, and set it aside.

Now in the front left corner you will see your motor. (again, make sure your washer is un-plugged)
You will see that the motor has two plastic bushings in the front that it rides on, make sure there is no rust on the plate that it rides on if there is, sand it down. Apply a liberal amount of grease to the oval cutouts the glides ride on. (Both top and bottom.)
Also grease the rear pivot slide at the back of the motor. you can manually move the motor back and forth to wee the way it adjusts and be sure it is moving freely.
Once you have greased everything, you should be good to go.
Good luck with this!!

What size file should I use ona Husqvarna 137 chain saw?

The question you ask is dependent on the chain in use not the saw that drives it. To determine what chain is installed we must see the chain. A local seller/mechanic should be willing to answer your question. Lowes will not know!!!

Excerpt from "How To Sharpen a Chain Saw" here follows:

Use the right tools
If you're holding it correctly, a proper-diameter round file simultaneously restores the three different angles of a saw-chain cutter. Different-sized chains and different cutter styles call for different file diameters. It is vital to use the right size file.
In general, 1/4- and 3/8-inch-pitch, low-profile chains call for a 5/32-inch file; 0.325-inch-pitch chains require a 3/16-inch file; and standard 3/8-inch-pitch and 0.404-inch-pitch chains demand a 7/32-inch file. Beware, however, because many exceptions exist. For example, some brands of standard 3/8-inch-pitch chain require a 3/16-inch or 4.5-mm file. Check your chain-saw owner's manual or saw-chain instruction sheet to determine the correct file diameter. If you're not sure, ask your dealer. He also may have literature showing the proper filing angles and special procedures for your chain.
Getting the angles exactly right is not as important as removing all damage from the side plate and top plate and making sure the critical top corner is really sharp. However, for good results, you must consistently hold the file at the correct height and orientation within each cutter. This is difficult to do without some type of file guide.
Like most tools, simpler is better when it comes to file guides. The best guides are plates that drop over the chain. These keep the file at the right height and attitude and have witness marks to show proper top-plate angle alignment. The best thing about this type of guide is that you can see what you're doing. Guide plates that clamp to the file and rest on the cutter top plate also are good, but they tend to obscure your view of the cutter. Whichever guide you select, make sure you get the right model for your chain.

How do you install a heating element on a whirlpool WED5300SQ0 Electric Dryer.

There are 2 kinds of heating elements.
One is in the front and one is in the back.
If you have a kick-plate in the front, remove the plate by pushing in the 2 clips with a putty knife. Then you will see the element on the right side. You need to remove a couple quarter-inch screws and then pull it out, once the 2 wires are removed from the element.

If you don't have a kick plate, you need to take the entire back panel off by removing about 10 quarter-inch screws around the parameter.
Then you can easily see the element and just remove the 2 quarter-inch screws and wires and pull it down and out.

Best of luck and please feel free to e-mail me if you have any other questions.

To get to the ignitor, you must remove the front panel. To do this, first open the door and remove the two screws and plastic tabs that are directly across from the door hinges (left side if rt hand swing door and right side if left hand swing door). Next, support the door and remove the two screws from the hinges and remove the door. The front panel is now loose and will pivot down from the top out. Pull it out a couple inches then straight up and out of the way. You now have access to most all of the components internal of your dryer, including the ignitor. I know it's late, but didn't see an answer for it yet....and I have mine apart right now for the same problem (runs with no heat).
