Beryl Beemer needs new bacon slicers
And another set of front brake pads are installed ready to give their lives in the pursuit of keeping me upright in spite of these dumbass cage drivers we have here.
Installed some sintered Bendix MF203, from Motohansa, at $A51/set.
Pulled the old ones out and all four (4) anti-rattle springs had broken/were missing.
That was on the weekend.
Methinks that Beryl Beemer is due for some new bacon slicers. Thought I would measure them this afternooon, with my 0-1' vernier micrometer that I have in my bag, (yes we all normally carry one of these I suspect).
So the external rim edge of the disc is measured at 0.193".
the centre part of the disc is measured at 0.100".
the internal rim edge is measured at 0.195".
Hmmmmmm one would think that the disc faces would be parallel, all at 0.195" when new....that means I have chewed almost 50% off the thickness???? nahhhh that doesn't sound right.
Haven't the disc specifications here with me at work, (yeah I know....boring!) will need to look at tonight..
Has anyone any spare newish (well, "thicker") 5 point fixing bacon slicers for sale here in Oz?
Woooops almost forgot....how quiet Beryl is now with four (4) intact rattle springs, just amazing how much din those pads generated, thinking that the front end was going to fall off....it really was a huge ...did I say HUGE difference...no rattles YEAHHHHHhhhhhhh
