Cimex Big Wheel Kit is on!

September 24 2009 at 12:23 AM

took me about an hour and a half and 3 calls to Drew, and it looks great happy.gif

if i had it to do over again i would have:

- not smashed my finger with the hammer.
- not wasted time trying to remove the long piece of metal that adjusts the angle of the Cimex.
- used black grit sand paper sooner, to remove the rust build-up on the old axle!!! that alone woulda saved me 30 minutes.

cant wait to try her out tomorrow on a demo! wink.gif

That's one of the nice things about the new STAINLESS STEEL axle in the wheel kit. You won't ever get a corrosion problem, like you had with the old axle. Glad to hear you were able to get your old axle out. You're going to like how smoothly the new set up rolls happy.gif

Glad to hear you got them on! It can be a little difficult when they get all rusted! I had one that I had to completely remove the arms before I could get the axle off! That is when I came to the same conclusion you did, a little piece of sand paper could have saved me A LOT of time!

PS: Just a tip if you want to clean up you machine and make it look new, get some Rust-oleum paint (navy Blue) it matches perfectly, and a little touch up on the bowl will make the machine look like new!

tx for the tip! my base is nearly blue-less haha.

wheels or super smooth! i am used to having to man-handle my Cimex, since the old wheels were a little bound up.

now i have to be careful because it can get away from me when i am wheeling it into a facility with 1 hnd, and the Conequest is in the other hand....DOH!

i am hoping i can throw out my 14" air-filled tires to! i will find out next week happy.gif
