How many times have you broken a snow thrower shear pin, then spent more time looking for a replacement and tools than it took to do the whole snow throwing job? I taped two spares to the top of my snow thrower:


But while effective, inelegant. A little while with SolidWorks and 26 minutes in a uPrint 3D printer, and I had a "Holster" for them to stick on with double-sided tape. It's a snap fit to hold the pin in place.

Hey, it's easier and cheaper than you might think... my latest project, although not quite done:



Read all about it in the "3D Printers. Who's got one?" thread.

can't help but wonder how the plastic will hold up to the cold. Looks like a good idea though. Something the Mfg should add to their machines.

We had a husky weedeater set up with piano wire at the golf course I worked at. Mechanic wouldn't trust many people with it. Forget about breaking off, it would probably just cut right through your leg. We used it to clear heavy brush, with trees up to 3 inches thick.

I made a time zone clock bank for my K1100RS using the right side fairing cover.

This is the final form. However, I'll be taking it apart to paint the metal and seal/waterproof the backs of the clocks.

I hope to finish it completely by tomorrow.
