Good memory Kevin. I like the '48 so much I got the '50 to go with it. Pictures once I get it running. Getting new valves and guides Right now.

Been a year since a new shop tool was presented on this discussion.

Donna and I stopped into Harbor Freight to get some mole chaser units. Donna found something of interest and decided I needed it. It is my early Christmas present.

The blaster box was the floor display unit that the Savannah store was discounting. For $114 it was a value not to pass up. It being a larger box, I can do more with it. I can now do all my front and rear suspension myself, except for the crossmember. Now I have to improve my dust removal system to work with it.

Al - Buy an extra pair of the glove protectors. The demo unit in my local store had both gloves torn, sitting on the sales floor. Pretty cheap stuff.

You are correct, Seth. The first box lost its gloves after 4 uses (about 4 hours of heavy use.) Second box about 7 hours of use as I learned how to be more careful with the glove stitching, but media still ate them up. First thing I prep to do is have a set of spare gloves. There is a set in waiting for my current box that will be pressed into use at first sign of damage to this new box's gloves. I get good ones from TP Tools. I get my #13 glass beads from the Tacoma Company.

Lots to do to get this new unit ready for use. The trap door locking lever was broken, so I bolted it closed. I installed a male nipple into the suppled air pipe, but I need to investigate the outlet. I want a disconnect there, so I can remove hose and gun as needed. Looking to put a t-fitting in the inside air delivery system for having a blow nozzle inside to blow off parts when done.

I have to seal all the seams with sealant as the foam gaskets that HF uses leaks the glass beads out. The fluorescent light is useless, so I am replacing it with a brighter LED light bar. Gun will be replaced with a Scat gun for reliability of air and media delivery. Vacuum system being reworked to include a Dust Deputy cyclone unit to eliminate the water entrapment system I have been using for 5 years. I may find a way to put caster wheels on it later on down the road, so I can wheel it outside in the shade on nice days.

My new dial indicator and magnetic base arrived today even if I did have to tell the UPS guy to leave them outside because I was sick.

Ah. You will be doing your own rear axle bearing setups. Simple task with right tools.

Yep, been there, done that, lost the t-shirt. Gear lash and end play can't be done any other way that I trust.
Most machines tend to cooperate if you talk nice to them and pay attention to detail.

P.S. Drivers side rear axle carrier assembly is shot out, has about a 1/16th of play. SO, ordered the dial indicator and base. Expecting to have to order shims, doubt the original are still useful.

I got the dial indicator setup from Gorilla Tools. I also have the Kent Moore tool to setup the shims. Makes it simple, if you take it slowly by the book.
