5 minute down time
« on: November 09, 2014, 01:26:02 PM »
Yesterday morning was the first cold morning and, as I was setting up,  the hydraulics on my LT-40 sawmill were sticking in the on position.  Guessed correctly that the spring loaded rocker arm assembly rod in the hydraulic lever bank was not returning quickly,  but what to do.    Can barely see in that box let alone get in there to do anything.  Took my Blue Creeper spray bottle and adjusted it to squirt, and wet down the whole assembly 6" or so wide.  It freed up and the problem went away in less than a minute.

Total down time was 5 minutes.
