    I've finished the tree work on my property so I'm selling my wood chipper. It's well maintained and ready to work. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1991-Vermeer-1250-Brush-Chipper-/201594251452?hash=item2eeff428bc:g:znwAAOSw0gdXTJDw

    Got caught with the dipstick scam as well from Vermeer. I was running into the same thing with New Holland on a backhoe I bought with a POS Iveco engine. I'm in the process of replacing that with a Perkins.

    tblough replied to a thread Avon CT in Odds and Ends
    Lived there for 10 years off Sawmill Lane in south Avon. It's a great small town with an easy commute to Hartford. Excellent schools if children are a factor. The main drag to the north shared with Simsbury has grocery/restaurants/shopping. Great place to live with 4 real seasons. Not a lot of snow in the winter but decent skiing an hour away, New York and Boston less than 2.

    Nick, I know I'm chiming in here late, but the bearing inner race has an eccentric machined on it. The outer ring where you removed the two setscrews also has an eccentric machined on it. The two are cammed together by rotation which pinches the shaft, then the outer ring is setscrewed in place to prevent it from loosening. You need to remove the setscrews (which do not dig into the shaft - they grip the extended inner race), then using a pin spanner (correct tool), or a pin punch or screwdriver in one of the unthreaded holes in the outer ring, knock the outer ring in the opposite direction of shaft rotation (if installed correctly). It that doesn't work try the other direction. Once you break it loose, it should come off the bearing and the bearing will now dismount from the shaft. Cheers, Tom
