New Sickle Servicer Changes Sections Fast
On most machines, you can replace worn or broken sections in less than a minute without having to remove the sickle, says Jerry Cook, designer of a new air-powered tool called the Speed Sickle Servicer.
In three easy steps, it lets you remove the old and install a new section in a matter of seconds:
1. Using the airgun's V-chisel attachment, you shear off the top of the old rivet.
2, Next, remove the rest of the rivet with the airgun's punch-out attachment.
3. Put on the new section and use the airgun's punch attachment, and the anvil, to flatten the new rivets.
Cook notes that you can also use the airgun's V-chisel attachment to cut mufflers, exhaust pipes, bearings and thin sheet metal.
The tool is powered by most ordinary air compressors. Cook recommends that the air supply pressure be 110 psi or greater.
Sells for $159.95, which includes the base with the chisel, punch and anvil attachments. Two types of anvils are available one for flat and one for oval head rivets.
