That is a big concern of mine. I close the garage door and from the house you can barely hear it. I really try to keep the noise down for the neighbors and this is a loud tool. But just about anything we do out there is making noise they don't deserve to hear so we have to be careful and respect them.

It is one noisy thing.

I am very nice to my neighbors but they have always been tolerant of my toys,

On the other hand when his mower deck rusted out, I am the guy who made patches for it for free. He is using it 3 more years and counting.

I hear putting sand into the stand can help. Can also give your neighbors ear muffs.

Actually both the HF hammer and stand both have plastic plugs to facilitate putting sand in them.

Of course in true HF fashion the welds are so bad that the sand is running out of the frame onto the floor. What else would you expect?

John, I am so blessed, these things fell in my lap! I have a total of right about $50 invested in all of it! Now, I need to use them so I don't get you mad at me just letting them sit.

That is darn interesting! That would dampen the noise, interesting.

Like I said, that is so damn interesting, never thought of it. For that matter some sort of counter weight off a Honda bumper! That just hit me, OMG a rubber mounted counter weight! They are in many bumper reinforcements on Hondas and Toyotas so the wrecking yards are full of them. Just bolt it to the top of the tool with a couple of nuts welded to it. I have to give that a try. I know that setting a sand bag on the panel helps a lot when you are doing hammer work too.

Picked up the trans and bell today. Chris did a fantastic job of welding and draw filing the mating surface to get it all flat again.



Probably wont get things going back together until after the holiday.

yesterday I got my Milwaukee 6805 throatless shear and I feel I pulled a bank heist on this one. The issue with it was a broken set screw but the tool is absolutely brand new. It looks like it was used for less than 5 minutes. So I start messing around with the set screw and take out the blade it's pushing on to see if I could grab the broken screw from the back side but couldn't get a needle nose in there but noticed it moving around so knew it wasn't tight. So I got a pair of tweezers and slowly backed it out. It worked! I also see home depot carries set screws that fit for around $0.70. Problem solved. Even came with the box, allen wrenches, and the feeler gauge to adjust the blades. Great find! Only $150 for a shear that cost $329. I WIN I WIN!!!

Somehow I missed your post Henry. You did win! You will love the shear. I wouldn't take anything for mine.
