Ok this is a shot in the dark, but I bought a Grizzly G1036 Slow-Speed Grinder from a fellow LJ. USPS promptly trashed it in route. The LJ was nice enough to work out a deal that I hope he felt was amicable to both of use and I do have it working. The parts that are broke are not sold individually so I’m hoping somebody would have one that’s not working and would have the parts they would sell. I need the switch and motor enclosures.

I can buy the whole new motor, but that’s $80.

Nothing wrong with duct tape (probably should get some black) but I wouldn’t mind fixing it right.

Don – I don’t have the parts however, from looking at your craked casing have you considerd using plumbers PVC pipe weld? You know, the stuff which comes in a tub with an included applicator brush.

I used it to “weld” the cut line when making reducer pipes for my dust collection system. The stuff holds up really well, the pipe is under a great deal of pressure but holds OK. Just run a bead of the solution along both edges of the broken casing and hold it in place with pipe clamps or band clamps. It sets in about 10 – 15 seconds so being quick and nimble is the key.

Make sure to slightly sand the mating surfaces before hand to create a key for the glue.

Good luck.

Don, that looks pretty bad. I just cannot believe that jackasses treat someone else’s property so poorly. If this is a sample of how the USPS does business, it doesn’t seem so far of a stretch that they take massive losses year in and year out.

Be careful using that plumber’s glue. It requires a companion primer for proper sealing and it doesn’t work on all plastics.

PS: it was amicable. Sorry you got it in that shape.

Para – No, the plumbers glue does not require a companion. It is simply smeared onto the inside of the PVC pipe and onto the corresponding male pipe. Time is money if you are a plumber and the need for introducing extra additives is not an option.

Usual rules apply, test on a smal piece first, certainly holds tight on my plastics.

thanks guys. I have no plans to take it apart again unless I get the right parts. The glue may work for the main housing, but there are to many parts missing from the switch box.

I’ll keep searching and just use it as it is for now.

Bluekingfisher, there is a companion, it is called “primer”. Some state plumbing codes have it written into their verbage; others still require primer to be purple in color to prove its use. Google it, I am sure you will find it somewhere.

I was a licensed plumber in a previous life.

Could use Plastruct Plastic weld or Ambroid Pro Weld instead of the pvc stuff. It works on many if not most plastics and does not need a primer. Available in hobby and some hardware stores. But that’s if the duct tape ever fails which if the motor gets hot enough it might.
